Dear Parents and Guardians of the Sutton Village School,
There has been an increase in the number of COVID-19 cases in our region. In particular we have seen a significant increase in some sectors of our community. We need to keep our community safe and therefore we are taking precautionary measures.
We are suspending all transportation via Butler’s school bus
March 29- April 2.
This means that parents and guardians will need to provide transportation to and from the Sutton Village School. We understand this is a hardship and will do our best to support families.
Due to the potential for increased congestion on the Underpass Road, we ask for continued patience and understanding. Pick up and drop off may take longer than in the past few weeks. Drop-off for students will remain at 7:45am, but parent pick-up will start at 2:50pm in the back parking lot.
Please remember that students in K-2 will continue to learn remotely until at least Tuesday, March 30th, including students who have received negative test results. I will update families in K-2 by the evening of Monday, March 29th on the timeline for students to transition back to school.
Thank you for understanding that due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release names of individuals with COVID-19, close contacts, or the specific reasons for our precautionary step. We must continue the good work we have done this past year: wear masks, keep distant, and follow all Department of Health guidelines (https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19).
If your child has any symptoms, they should stay home. On Friday Vermont reported the highest single-day case count since this pandemic began. We all want our children in school; we will all work together to be safe and stop the spread of the virus.
Please reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

Dear Parents of Sutton Village School Students,
I want to inform everyone that today, March 24, we learned that a member of our K-2 cohort has tested positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19). When we are alerted about a positive case we review our room logs and attendance records, determine specific contact times and notify individuals determined to be close contacts. We have consulted with the department of health and have made decisions based on their consultation. The students in Sutton’s kindergarten, first, and second grade are pivoting to remote learning until Tuesday, March 30th with a possible return to in person learning on Wednesday, March 31st. The final return date will be determined based on further information from the VT Department of Health.
Thank you for understanding that, due to medical privacy laws, we are not able to release names of any individuals with COVID-19. Please do not ask or post on social media any speculation concerning the identity of the individuals. It is important to respect privacy and minimize rumors within our community. We will continue to communicate changes and updates with you as necessary. Continue to take good care of yourselves and each other. Please reach out to Jean Maleski (email@example.com) Soph Hall (firstname.lastname@example.org), Jennifer Botzojorns (email@example.com) or me directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.

|The Vermont Agency of Education, in partnership with the Vermont Department of Health, is seeking information to assist with planning a potential COVID-19 vaccine deployment to school staff. The AOE has designed a brief survey to be completed by school staff, in which they will indicate the SU/SD/Independent School where they work, their age range, if they have certain health conditions and whether or not they would be interested to receive the vaccine if it were offered for free in their district or school.|
Participation in the survey is voluntary and anonymous. No personally identifiable information (i.e. name, date of birth) will be gathered. The survey is not a registration and completing it does not constitute signing up for or declining a vaccine. This survey is open to all school employees at public and independent schools. Front line contractors (e.g. food service, bus drivers, etc.) will be considered for vaccination, but should not complete the survey at this time.Please share this survey with your staff and encourage them to complete by 4:30 p.m. on March 1, 2021, at which point the survey will be closed to additional responses.
