Appreciation is a wonderful thing

Last week the staff enjoyed daily treats and appreciations from students.  On Friday a delicious lunch was served in the festively decorated Outback.  Teachers were able to enjoy the meal and each other’s company as parents covered their recess duty and classrooms.

L’After News

Dear Families and Friends of MES,

As the new Site Coordinator of the MES L’After Program I must thank everyone for being so welcoming and helpful during my first week. Emily Wagner, soon to be a Virginian, did a great job of teaching me the ins and the outs of the program over the past several weeks. I hope that I can be as warm, creative and organized as she was and continue to grow and strengthen this wonderful program. Transitioning from being a Big Brothers Big Sister case manager at MES to my new role feels natural and the first week was truly, such a pleasure. As I wrap up the last couple weeks of L’After and start planning the fall programming, please feel free to share feedback and program ideas, ask questions and occasionally remind me of your names (I’ve got a lot to learn!). I look forward to getting to know everyone in this sweet and incredibly special community.

 

Warmly,

 

Leigh Madalinski

MES L’After Site Coordinator

Vaccines

From Nurse Susan, March 25th. The Vermont State Assembly is voting on a measure to eliminate philosophical exemptions to vaccines now.

In light of the national measles outbreak, the Vermont Department of Health is encouraging all unimmunized children to be immunized as soon as possible. To date, there are no cases of measles in Vermont. Seventeen states have been affected, including New York and Pennsylvania. Here at Marlboro School, most of our students have been fully immunized against measles, receiving two doses of the MMR vaccine, but 24% have not. Herd immunity occurs when 95% of a community is vaccinated in order to stop the spread of a disease. Because we do not have herd immunity here at MES, our unimmunized  children are at risk if an outbreak occurs locally. Because measles is the most contagious disease known to humans, unimmunized children will be asked to stay home. Parents of unimmunized students are encouraged to read the article from the CDC noted below. Please contact me for any questions or concerns. skunhardt@marlboroschool.org. Thank you.
