SCHOOL INFO:


Bus Incident:

Dear Parents,


On Wednesday, November 28th at approximately 2:55 pm, the West River Transportation school bus travelling north on route 30 was struck by a falling utility pole that had been struck by a truck. 


The bus driver steered the bus into the ditch on the shoulder of the road. He did an initial verbal check of injuries and found none. Rescue Inc and Townshend fire arrived on the scene within minutes. The scene was secured as the first responders waited for the power company to arrive and shut off the power. The power company arrived shortly after the scene was secured and power was shut off.


The students were then moved to an awaiting bus and driven back to Leland and Gray. The administration at Leland and Gray set-up an Incident Command post and students were evaluated by medical personnel from Rescue Inc. Parents were given the option of an ambulance ride to the hospital or taking their students to the hospital themselves. All parents declined the ambulance ride.


The students were all safe and were incredibly calm, cool, and collected. They are to be commended.

We offer Winter Activities that are both on site and some are off-site. Some activities have fees and some are free.  Due to West River transportation costs rising, the one-time transportation fee was raised this year.  This is the first price raise in years and is to help offset the increased costs to run Winter Activities.  The dates for Winter Activities are January 9, 16, 23, 30 and February 13.  If one of the dates is cancelled there will be a make up day on February 27th.  If no dates are cancelled activities will end on February 13th.


Here are the options for Winter Activities:


1. Hip Hop:  no charge

2. Badminton:  no charge

3. 3 vs 3 Basketball:  no charge

4. Snowshoeing and Winter Fun at L&G:  no charge

5. Weight Training:  no charge

6. Yoga:  no charge

7. Corn Hole:  no charge

8. Bowling in Brattleboro:  $50 transportation fee and $7/day (includes shoe rental)

9. Cross Country Skiing:  $50 transportation fee and TBD rental fee (depends on the site)

10. Skiing and Snowboarding at Stratton Mountain:  $50 transportation fee and a Stratton Pass or Refuse to Use pass

11. Ice Skating in Brattleboro:  $50 transportation fee and $5.50/day (includes rentals)

12. New England Center for Circus Arts:  One time fee of $100 (this includes transportation)

13. Rock Climbing at the Bratt Cave in Brattleboro:  $50 transportation fee and $10/day (includes shoe rental)

14. Gerda’s Horse Rescue:  $25 transportation fee


On Monday, December 3rd there will be an assembly where the activities are announced.  After the assembly students will go to their advisories to sign up for a winter activity.  Some activities have limited space but we have to be able to accommodate students first choice.  Please review this list with your student this weekend so they are prepared to come to sign up on Monday.

All transportation fees will need to be paid upfront before the first Winter Activity date. 

Thank you for all your support and we look forward to an exciting Winter!

    Get a flu vaccine. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. A yearly flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. As long a flu viruses are circulating, it is not too late to get vaccinated!
    Take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs. Wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands often with soap and water. If you become sick, limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them.

     Thank you all for your assistance in keeping our community as healthy as we can be!

    Hiding in Plain Sight


    Tuesday, November 13, 2018
    2pm-3pm ET

    Unfortunately, teens often exhibit some of the riskiest behavior when compared to other age groups. Drug and alcohol use is even further accentuated with peer pressure and the ideation that drugs are becoming decriminalized. In addition to their perception of illegal activity, there are also new technological advancements in the drug and alcohol world, which makes detection by others much harder. This course is designed to educate parents and those working with youth about current drug trends.
