Good Morning Seymour Community

I wanted to take a minute and address the 2 hour delay and subsequent closure of school this morning so that you have a clear picture of the sequence of events and how we make decisions on delays and closures.

We began monitoring the situation and condition of the roads before 5 am and were in constant contact with the public works department and other personnel. The road conditions deteriorated rapidly around 6:15 after some of our buses had already picked up some of our high school students.

The roads had frozen over at a very rapid pace and drivers reported being stuck. It was at this point that the decision to call for a 2 hour delay was made to give our public works crews time to treat the roads and stop more students from being picked up.

The situation was reassessed shortly after and the decision to close fully came as a result of conditions not improving coupled with busing issues due to ongoing driver shortages.

The safety of our staff and students are of paramount importance to us and we always strive to make all decisions with that at the forefront of our minds. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your understanding.

Thank You!

Congratulations, Mrs. Reid! This month we are recognizing ACHIEVEMENT! Today at our town meeting, we met to celebrate a very special achievement, “Congratulations to Mrs. Lauren Reid, the State of Connecticut’s 2022 Assistant Principal of the Year!”

In September, Mrs. Reid was nominated as a candidate for the 2022 Assistant Principal of the Year. “…How would I best describe Mrs. Reid? Mrs. Reid is an outstanding member of the Bungay School community through her everyday actions and through her ability to inspire all. Her integrity, positive attitude, enthusiasm, dedication, passion for education, and love for children are reflected in her work and beyond. Mrs. Reid exhibits exceptional qualities in the area of leadership and education. She is an excellent communicator, enthusiastic, bright and always willing to share and support others. She is a natural leader and should strongly be considered as the National Outstanding Assistant Principal!”

Two months later, Mrs. Reid was notified that she was a finalist in the state of Connecticut, and on Friday, November 22, the Connecticut Association of School came to our school with a committee of six professional educators to interview staff, students, parents, administration, and to meet with Mrs. Reid.

Staff members who met with the committee included: Mrs. Kim Barton, Mrs. Katie Furino, Mrs. Kristine Yoxall, Mrs. Chloe Germain, Mrs. Kristine Yoxall, Mrs. Suzanne O’Hara, and Mrs. Rebecca Bennett. Students who met with the committee included: Giada Snell (5th), Gabriela Guerrera (5th), Aiden Pierre (5th), Jackson Sawicki (4th), Jayden Knott (4th), and Joseph Vicidomino (3rd); Parents who met with the committee included: Mrs. Christy Chiaramonte (PTA President), Mrs. Michelle Strumello, Mrs. Tonya Johnson, Mrs. Carrie Sand, and Mrs. Tracey Kyrytschenko. The Seymour Administrative Committee included: Dr. Susan Compton (Superintendent of Schools), Mrs. Vonda Tencza (Associate Superintendent), Mrs. Mary Sue Feige (Bungay School, Principal), Mrs. Kathleen Reynolds (Seymour Middle School, Assistant Principal), and Ms. Kristen Harmeling (BOE Member).

Mrs. Karen Packtor Deputy Executive Director, Connecticut Association of Schools sent an email to Mrs. Reid:
“Good afternoon, Lauren! I am reaching out to express my enthusiastic congratulations on being selected as our 2022 Elementary Assistant Principal of the Year! WOW! That was some site visit we had on Friday! There was a warm and welcoming feeling from the moment we pulled into the parking lot and it was clear that your entire school community ADORES you!!!...”

CAS Tiffany Caouette, Chair of Awards and Recognition Committee sent a letter:
“On behalf of the Connecticut Association of Schools, I would like to congratulate you on being selected as our state’s 2022 Elementary Assistant Principal of the Year! It is a fitting tribute to a woman who has demonstrated extraordinary leadership and an unrivaled commitment to her students, school and community. You were chosen from a pool of gifted administrators, thus giving testimony to your prodigious success as an instructional leader and building manager…”

Mrs. Reid will be honored at the National Association of Elementary School Principals (NAESP) along with fellow elementary assistant principals of the year from throughout the country at the 2022 NAESP Pre-K-8 Principals Conference.

…”I would be remiss if I did not mention Lauren’s sense of humor and fun. She is always laughing and carries a positive energy that is contagious! In my opinion, Lauren’s legacy as a leader is her ability to model, inspire, and grow the capacity of those who work with her. She is like an educational Pied Piper, who, by nature of who she is, encourages others to join her on the journey. When selecting Lauren for the NOAP award, you will be not only celebrating a true leader, you will be showcasing an individual who will work to model and build the capacity of all others in a manner that is humble, sincere, and joyful. “ - Mrs. Tencza, Associate Superintendent

Congratulations Mrs. Reid, we are so proud of you!

September was “National Preparedness Month”. On September 23, fourth grade students took part in the Federal Emergency Management Administration’s “Students Tools for Emergency Planning” program, also known as STEP.

This is the 13th year Seymour students have participated in the “STEP Program”, which was piloted in Seymour in 2008. Seymour Public Schools Director of Security Rich Kearns received National recognition from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security and FEMA when FEMA modeled Seymour’s adaptation of the program nationally. The “STEP Program” is sponsored by FEMA and the Connecticut Department of Emergency Management and Homeland Security.

This year Seymour School Security Officers Ron Barnard and Officer Kevin Pimpinelli have joined Kearns in teaching students the steps on how to prepare their families in the event an emergency or disaster was to strike. Each student was given a backpack to take home. The backpacks contained items to help start building their own family emergency kit that included an emergency blanket, flashlights, whistle along with activity books and information to share with their families to better prepare them in the event of an emergency or disaster. It is found that if people are better prepared to deal with a crisis before it strikes, the outcomes and recovery process will be that much easier for them.

For questions or information on how to prepare your family for a disaster or emergency you may contact Seymour Schools Security Director Rich Kearns at 203-888-2561 ext. 1003.
