Greetings From Gail

February 20, 2015

We all had an unexpected field trip Monday to Rivendell Academy. The town of Fairlee was working on a water main break and they had to shut the water off for the rest of the day. We did not learn about this until Monday morning.

We had planned to take our kindergarten, first and second grade classes to Westshire for the rest of the day but just as we were about to leave we were informed that they had lost power and water due to an electrical pole on route 244. We then made the decision to take all the students to Rivendell Academy.

Keri Gelenian and the staff were very accommodating finding classrooms and spaces for our classes to work. Most of the students were very excited about being at the Academy and soon settled down to business as usual, with students engaged in their lessons. 

While this was an inconvenience and a disruption for our classrooms, it helped us assess how we did with evacuating the building if there was an emergency. Special thanks to all the staff for their flexibility and helping things run very smoothly.
