Greetings,

Our Doering school nurse of 10 years, Mrs. Denise Nostin, has retired effective last Friday, November 30th.  She will be in school a few days this week to assist our new nurse, Mrs. Pam Franco, and to finalize reports and answer questions concerning students that may arise. Mrs. Nostin spent 2 days last week with Mrs. Franco as well, acquainting her with students, procedures and protocols and to ensure a smooth transition. Mrs. Franco has a wealth of experience in both the private health care field as well as in school nursing.  

I know you join me in wishing Mrs. Nostin a long, healthy and happy retirement and that you also join me in welcoming Mrs. Franco to our staff. 

Happy holidays!

Mrs. Federico

STUDENT DROP OFF AND PICK UP AT ROBERTA G DOERING SCHOOL

To ensure the safety of students, in conjunction with the police department, the town engineering department, school department and bus company, the Roberta G. Doering School has instituted a comprehensive student drop off and pick up plan.  Starting on the first day of school, all buses will access school grounds through the Town Hall parking lot and stage in the drive on the Town Hall side of the school in the morning and afternoon.  The front parking lot will be closed off to all traffic for morning drop off and afternoon pick up. Student drop off will take place by driving down the left hand side drive off Main Street, around the back of the school, then down the Town Hall side drive to the front door where students will exit cars and enter the building. There will be a brief wait on the rear parking lot at 8:19 when buses will enter the Town Hall side drive alongside the school, in 2 phases, to let students off.  After buses leave the grounds, student drop off will continue at the Town Hall side front door. Student pick up will occur in the rear of the building on the parking lot. Parents will be able to enter the left hand side drive beginning at 2:30 p.m. and stage in lines designated by cones on the rear paved lot.  After buses are loaded and leave the school grounds, students will exit the rear of the school on the Town Hall side when they will walk to cars for dismissal.  Walkers will also be dismissed after buses leave.  Please note that auto traffic should not enter or leave through Town Hall nor should they park at Towne Insurance Agency at the corner of Reed Street.  There will be ongoing bridge construction in this area beginning after the Big E.  Your cooperation in instituting this plan will be appreciated as we work to ensure the safety of students, staff and parents.
