Dear Stockbridge Valley School Community:
Well, this year was one for the record books! Stockbridge Valley Central School Districts was one of only a handful of school districts that opened its doors in September for its students and kept them open all year. We had our days of remote learning so that we could clean and disinfect the building, but most of all we welcomed our students daily.
Our masks became a type of school uniform, and with any luck they are now history. Only time will tell, as the rules for the 2021-22 school year are not yet determined.
Above all else our children learned, sang, played sports and graduated. The Kindergarten class led the graduation ceremonies followed by 6th grade, and then on June 25th, under sunny skies, the Class of 2021 crossed the stage. The senior class enjoyed a graduation ceremony that was very close to the traditions held dear here at SVCS. With parents, relatives, teachers, staff and the community looking on, they engaged in the final milestone of their educational career here. Their next chapters are filled with much promise and potential as they have the foundational support of our Cougar Nation.
Congratulations on a very successful school year. This summer we have a number of programs being offered to engage our students in fun and learning. We will also be working on getting ready for what hopes to be a traditional school year in 2021-22.
Have a wonderful summer,
Dr. Susan Vickers
