CogAT Testing for 2nd Grade

We would like to remind you that the 2nd grade will be taking the CogAT test on Thursday, May 19th, and Friday, May 20th, please be present on those days. Students generally score higher if they take tests on the regular testing day, so please do not schedule routine doctor or dentist appointments on these days. It is important that your child has a good night’s rest and eats a healthy breakfast on testing day.

As part of Earth Day 2022, we are excited to host a recycle fair. Our students had an opportunity to see a young student who recycled cardboard boxes and made a full arcade. Our students are invited to participate in making his/her own arcade game to showcase at our students' Recycle Arcade on May 24th. Let's see what creative students we have at Suffield!

If you are interested in viewing the fair, the Recycle Arcade will be open for K-2 Parents from 9:30-10:30 am and for 3-5 parents from 1:00-2:00 pm.  We invite you to stop in and see the creative games our students have constructed.  See this PDF for more details.

Covid-19 Quarantine Guidelines Updated 1/31/2022

Below are the new COVID guidelines in accordance with the health department recommendations. These guidelines will go into effect 1/31/22. 
We will no longer be contact tracing students. 

Positive cases will be reported once per week. 

If a student reports that a family member within the home is positive, we will confirm that what the student is saying is true and then the student will be asked to wear a mask to stay.

If there is a large increase of positive cases in a classroom (10-20% increase) then this will be reported to the health department much like we report large increases of diseases such as hand foot and mouth disease. This class would be considered exposed and it would be recommended to wear a mask and monitor for symptoms. 

If a student is positive they will stay home for 5 days from the start of symptoms and wear a mask for 5 days after they return to school. 
We will no longer be testing athletes in order for them to participate in sports. 

To summarize, if you have COVID you go home and quarantine, if not, stay in school. Overall, this should make things much easier when it comes to COVID management in school. We will still be offering COVID testing in the clinics to those that want it. Feel free to contact the district registered nurse with any questions or concerns

Birthday Treats

The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) recently came out with guidelines and a list of healthy foods that schools are being asked to serve in place of cookies, candy, and other less healthy foods. Schools are encouraged to follow these guidelines, not only with food being sold but with any food being brought into the school. You are strongly encouraged to send in healthy snacks for birthday treats and/or holiday parties when requested.


At this time, we will allow Birthday Treats to be brought to school. We are required to inform you of the Healthy Eating Guidelines and suggest that you use this when selecting a treat. Whatever you choose, please note that all treats brought to school for the purpose of sharing with others, need to be prepackaged so we are able to know and see the ingredients list. There are many students who have a variety of food allergies and having the ingredients listed helps the school nurse determine if a student with allergies can eat a particular treat.
