Dear Suffield Families,

We apologize for those of you who experienced technical difficulties when accessing last night's webinar on Suffield's exploration on the viability of a weekly one hour early release day for the 2017-2018 school year. The webinar PowerPoint is below with a voice over audio. We will work on improving the user experience when we conduct future webinars. Finally, after the December parent focus groups (Grades K-5 Dec 6 @ MIS / 6pm & Grades 6-12 Dec 7 @ SHS 5:30pm) we will be publishing a question and answer document that consolidates and summarizes the common questions and concerns raised during the past several weeks.
