Special Community Meeting, Monday 7pm

Childcare will be provided by the JH students during the meeting for the low cost of $5.00 per family to help raise funds for field trips.

The Marlboro School Board is hosting a community meeting to provide information about Act 46, Vermont’s new education governance reform law.

Special guests:

Note from Francie 10/2/15

What a deluge on Wednesday! I hope your homes stayed dry. Needless to say, we postponed Fall Fiesta. It will be held next Wednesday, October 7. Please be sure that your child is dressed for an afternoon of outdoor activity.

P&F (Parents and Friends) will hold the first meeting of the year on Tuesday, October 13, 7pm. We will plan activities for the year and review parent pledges to support the school that came in with your Home-School Compact at the beginning of the year. P&F is made up of all of us. It provides support to the school, students, and staff through fundraising activities and just plain fun activities. Please join us!


Fall is coming and that means that there is a lot to do, from raking leaves to stacking wood. What parent doesn’t want a night out on the town but doesn’t have anyone to babysit? Well, the Junior High has that covered with Rent-a-Kid. We can do many things and you can make a contribution to the JH’s class trip this year to Washington DC. We have kids that have taking babysitting classes and are safety certified in case you were worrying about your child. You can give us a days that work for you and we will give you days that will work for us.

We would appreciate it if you called the School and asked for Olivia Romo with any work that you might need to be done. You can also call us for more information about Rent-a-Kid.   Thanks!

From Nurse Susan, Immunizations, exams, etc.

What a fabulous month this has been! Seeing your children again and meeting new students has been so enjoyable. And it seems everyone is pretty healthy and happy! What a great start to the new year.

A few bits of information: The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that all children have a yearly physical exam that also includes a developmental, behavioral, and learning assessment. This is different from a sports physical or a visit because of an illness. Pediatricians are the experts on children’s health and YOU are the experts on your children. Parents and pediatricians…what a team!

Starting with the next school year in the fall of 2016, a philosophical exemption for immunizations will no longer be allowed. Read more »

All School Directory – Opt Out  

Traditionally Marlboro School provides a directory of Student Names sorted by Classroom, along with Parent Names, Home Phone Number, and Mailing Address and E-mail address, to all students’ families. We do this to facilitate communication in our small, yet geologically far spread school community. If you, DO NOT wish to be included on this list, please notify Gail Chaine at 254-2668 or, before October 2nd, and I will remove your name from the list. I will send home the all school directory with Oct 3rd Friday Notes.

New Payment System for Meals

Hi Everyone,

MEAL PLAN update:  Sorry for the continuous changes, but I would like to propose a new lunch payment system (again).  We have a new system in place that keeps track of the meals purchased and will debit an account very accurately.  Please consider paying a sum up front, above and beyond the typical 2 week charges, and we will debit the account each time your child eats.  This way I only have to send out bills when your account gets close to empty.  Thanks!  Kathy
