With winter weather already having arrived, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the district's procedures relative to school closings, delays, and early dismissals. The district will communicate the decision to parents to close school, delay the opening, or dismiss early using our electronic alert telephone system. This system provides us with the capability to send a message to your home and cell phone by either text message or voice message. Information related to delayed openings and school closures will typically be communicated by 5:30 a.m. The district's status is always posted on the district website at www.suffield.org...

We are excited to announce that we will be transitioning to a new notification system called SchoolMessenger. It will be used to send phone calls, emails, and texts about school closings/delays, emergencies, alerts, and general notifications.

"Opt-In" to Text Messaging Service

You can participate in this free service* by sending a text message of Y or Yes to our school's short code number, 67587. For more information, please click on and read this attached flyer: SchoolMessenger Text Messaging Service - PDF

*Will I be charged for the text messages?

SchoolMessenger and Suffield Public Schools will not charge recipients for the text messages that they receive or send; however, wireless providers may charge for text messages. Please consult your carrier if you are uncertain.

Hello Suffield Families –

I hope this communication finds everyone well as we head into the holiday season. In addition to our core academic Fall Curriculum Newsletters, you will find updates from the new members of our district curriculum team (Richard Lane our technology integrationist as well as Jess Marzi & Erin Grasso our K-5 instructional coaches). The rich information contained in the attached newsletters are a testament to the strong spirit of collaboration and commitment to continuous improvement throughout all of our classrooms and schools. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

Regards,

Brian Hendrickson

Assistant Superintendent for Curriculum and Instruction

In our summer family letter we included brief information relative to our new flexible Library Media Center schedule as well as our Rotating Specials Schedule. Both of these are new this year and we would like to share additional information that will be helpful to all families.

This year all art, music, and physical education classes will follow a four day rotating schedule similar to the schedule followed by our friends at Spaulding and Suffield Middle School. In accordance with this schedule, students will participate in art, music, and two physical education classes (fifth grade will also take a health class in lieu of one of their physical education classes for half the year) during a four day rotation...
