Dear Parents, The 2019-2020 School Year, the district held one (1) hour early release days on Fridays in the elementary schools to allow for teachers to collaboratively use data to improve instruction. Beginning this school year, the one (1) hour early release day will be on Wednesdays for PreK-8 schools (Fairfield Center School, St. Albans City School, and St. Albans Town Educational Center). Our intent is to provide this information to you as soon as possible so you may plan accordingly. More information and dismissal time will be coming from your school.
I want to thank our staff and community, and formally introduce myself. My hope is that you will have a well-deserved, restful summer. https://5il.co/uz4u is a link to a letter for a few things to come and to share some of my background. My goal is to get feedback from both staff and families so we can work collaboratively in the best interest of our students. Please visit the link in the letter. Your participation is greatly appreciated. -Bill Kimball
