Special Education Parent Advisory Committee (SEPAC)

When I was growing up, I only ever heard the words “special education” used in reference to a group of students in school with such severe developmental disabilities that they required full-time assistance in a single, separate classroom.

What I have since learned in my experience as a Darien parent is that the term actually refers to “specially-designed instruction” for students with any kind of disability: physical, mental, temporary, or permanent.

Marsh Mosquitos En Masse

They are EVERYWHERE: in our yards, in our houses, in our cars, on playgrounds, in parking lots – everywhere – and, apparently, until we get lots more rain, there’s nothing we can do except spray and take cover.

Who’s Driving?

State and local police will be out in full force this weekend performing scheduled and random DYI checkpoints. We thought it might be handy for you to program the number for Darien Taxi into your phone, for easy dialing of a ride home (in case you need one!) 203-655-2266.
