With winter weather already having arrived, I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the district's procedures relative to school closings, delays, and early dismissals. The district will communicate the decision to parents to close school, delay the opening, or dismiss early using our electronic alert telephone system. This system provides us with the capability to send a message to your home and cell phone by either text message or voice message. Information related to delayed openings and school closures will typically be communicated by 5:30 a.m. The district's status is always posted on the district website at www.suffield.org...

We are excited to announce that we will be transitioning to a new notification system called SchoolMessenger. It will be used to send phone calls, emails, and texts about school closings/delays, emergencies, alerts, and general notifications.

"Opt-In" to Text Messaging Service

You can participate in this free service* by sending a text message of Y or Yes to our school's short code number, 67587. For more information, please click on and read this attached flyer: SchoolMessenger Text Messaging Service - PDF

*Will I be charged for the text messages?

SchoolMessenger and Suffield Public Schools will not charge recipients for the text messages that they receive or send; however, wireless providers may charge for text messages. Please consult your carrier if you are uncertain.

Hello Suffield Families –

I hope this communication finds everyone well as we head into the holiday season.

The rich information contained in the attached newsletters are a testament to the strong spirit of collaboration and commitment to continuous improvement throughout all of our classrooms and schools. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

In order for the Makerspace at Spaulding School to be successful, we are asking for donations from the Spaulding community. We are grateful for items that you would otherwise recycle or are gently used, although we will of course accept new items as well. The list below includes some of the most common items, but do not feel that you must limit yourself to these items. We appreciate anything we can use to build and create. Stay tuned for stories and photos of the creative and innovative design projects made possible by your generosity...
