Colder Weather Planning: This week we have begun facilitating our Cold Weather Plan for our morning screening and drop off procedures. Families may be asked, or may have already been asked, to complete their morning screening through the following process:
Students will get out of their vehicle and walk into the gymnasium. Drivers will wait in their vehicles.
Students will participate in the screening process and exit the gymnasium.
Students will then give the “all clear” to their driver and enter the Middle Level entrance.
This screening process will be taking place for the winter months ahead. As a reminder to drivers, PLEASE wait for your student to correspond with you about their morning screening. We know your time is valuable, however cold and flu season is among us and students will be unable to attend school for the day if they do not pass the screening. Thank you.
It is highly encouraged that families complete their own LSUU Health Screening form prior to approaching the building, we will take your temperature when you pull up. This speeds up the screening process as a whole.
Virtual Open House: In place of an Open House this year, we will be creating a website for parents to learn more about your classes before Parent Teacher Conferences (a Virtual Open House). We are planning to present information about classes and areas of expertise in one of two ways:
Summary of course narrative with teacher introduction, paired with a picture of engaged learning within the classroom.
Video introductions describing course direction and teacher introduction.
This Virtual Open House will contain all, if not more, information than our traditional Open House, and we are looking forward to sharing it with our families.
Parent Teacher Conferences will be held on Thursday, October 15th, from 4:30-7:30pm and Friday, October 16th, from 8:00-11:30am. This year, conferences will be held remotely via a google meet or phone call. You may register for conferences in one of two ways. For families that would like to register electronically, please visit your PowerSchool Parent Portal and follow these instructions. If it is easier for you to call to schedule appointments, please call 888-4600 and Michele will assist you.

For the Community
Introduction to LAH2S-RCC Lamoille area health and human services organizations have formed the Lamoille Health and Human Services Response Command Center (LAH2S-RCC), a county-level response center to assist in the coordination and implementation of local efforts during this pandemic. Our region includes all of Lamoille county plus Craftsbury, Greensboro, Hardwick, Stannard, and Woodbury. This is a cross-organizational system of organization and support to ensure we are meeting the health and human services needs of the area as efficiently and effectively as possible. We focus on open lines of communication between area organizations in order to identify support people need.
Donation There is a great need for both microwaves and vacuum cleaners for people experiencing homelessness who are in General Assistance housing. If you have or hear of someone with a gently used microwave or vacuum cleaner, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Childcare Vermont has created childcare hubs around the state to support thousands of children and youth in grades K-6 who need a safe place to be during remote school learning days or afterschool. Please click here to find a childcare hub, as there are many spaces available. For financial assistance with childcare, contact the Lamoille Family Center email@example.com.
Driver’s License Help It can be daunting trying to reinstate a driver’s license. People needing assistance navigating the driver’s license reinstatement process can contact Rob Cary at Lamoille Restorative Center. firstname.lastname@example.org or (802) 888-0675.
Covid 19 Arrearage and Broadband Assistance Programs These programs were created to assist Vermont residents and Vermont businesses and provide relief from mounting utility bills associated with hardships resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Individuals or businesses may be eligible for assistance with past due electric, natural gas, landline telephone service, and water bills from private water companies, and they can also apply for a temporary subsidy for broadband assistance. Funding for these programs comes from the CARES Act. Call Elaine Willard at Capstone Community Action with questions 888-7993. Apply here.
Free Meals for Children and Youth The food service providers at our schools have been hard at work preparing food for our local children since the shutdown in March. USDA has extended waivers allowing schools to provide free meals to all children 18 and under. Regardless of the learning model a child is in this school year (hybrid, full remote, homeschool, not yet enrolled in the school system), anyone 18 or under is automatically eligible for free breakfast and lunch. All students can get free breakfast and lunch on the days they are in school. People 18 and under who are not in school for any reason can pick up free meals in these ways: arrange pickup with local schools directly, so they can make sure to meet all needs and prepare enough meals.
