Important Update

June 6, 2021

The Strafford School Board held an emergency meeting on Sunday afternoon, June 6; the emergency consists of the current heatwave and its impact on mask wearing by both students and staff.

The following changes to procedure were unanimously adopted by the Board and are effective immediately; these guidelines will remain in effect for the remainder of the current school year:

- Wearing facemasks while in school is now optional, both in school and on the playground;

- The Board acknowledges that staff may not be able to maintain distancing;

- Masks will continue to be required on school buses, as this remains a requirement of the district's transportation contractor;

- Permission slips regarding masks are not required;

- Personal decisions are to be respected by both students and staff.

Students, staff, and visitors who choose to wear a mask may continue to do so. All members of the Strafford School community are asked to respect each others' personal choice regarding masking. Those traveling to other schools are required to comply with local mask mandates in effect at those schools.

Please call the Strafford School office with any questions.

The sixth graders have collected food donations most of the year.

We are in the last month of school and would love to get more donations in to help families through the summer.

Please send in your donations of nonperishable food to school.

You can also hand off donations in the morning drop off line.

If you would like to have your remote student return to in person learning, we need a minimum of 2 school days to accommodate that request.

Arrival & Dismissal

Help us to make drop off and pick up safe for everyone.

  • Have your student gather all their things and put on their face mask as you approach the drop off spot.

  • Allow your student to open the door and get out on their own, whenever possible. This helps our line to moving and teaches your student to be more responsible.

  • Please pull up to the second Drop Off mark on the pavement whenever possible.

  • Do not pass a vehicle in the line unless directed to by a staff member. Students enter and exit from both sides of vehicles.

  • Pay attention to the visual/vocal directions given by the staff.

  • Allow a bus or 2 to be in front of you.
