Greetings Stowe Middle School Families,
Since the weather has been cooperative and beautiful lately, we have started to pilot outdoor recess activities! One sixth grade class had the opportunity to play kickball!
Additionally, our educators are taking advantage of the warm weather by going outside to create their classroom space. For example, I was able to join our 7th grade science for a lab experiment this past week! My lab partner was an expert at sharing with me what our organs are and what they do!
The Vermont Agency of Education and the Vermont Department of Health released revised guidance on April 8, 2021. Stowe Middle School has been working since the beginning of March to prepare for our students returning to more in-person learning. I am working with our faculty to unpack our safe and healthy matrix where our school shares our expectations with students around things like class transitions, eating at snack and lunch, and more! Tomorrow, our administrative team, facilities team and health services team will be meeting to review the guidance too. I anticipate more information coming out Tuesday that will answer the questions you likely have including quarantining after April vacation travel.
Additionally, Peoples Academy Middle Level Principal Matt Young and I are planning to host a Family MEET together to share any specific middle level updates. This will be announced soon. Exciting times! We know families are eager to hear what this might mean for our schools. Again, stay tuned and please be on the lookout for communications throughout the week! Lots of things for us to digest and finalize ranging from health screening information to outdoor recess to indoor/outdoor classroom use.
Please continue to read below to learn more about other news and announcements within our school community.
Dan Morrison, Principal
Hello BIPOC Families!
We at REAL want to know if our BIPOC families 16 and older want to get vaccinated here in Lamoille County? We have the opportunity for a vaccine clinic to come here to our county, but we need to hear from you if you and your family members wish to get vaccinated.
Please contact the Department of Health number to book vaccinations who qualify as BIPOC call this number (855) 722-7878. There is an actual person who will book your appointment for you. BIPOC have to identify as BIPOC and eligible ages are 16 and up.
Once we have a rough headcount we will be setting up another link and letting you what that is so you can book your vaccine date. The clinic, depending on the demand, will most likely take place during the course of one day so please let us know right away.
Who are we looking for? BIPOC People 16 and older.
Where will this be taking place? Lamoille County
How? A follow up link will be provided once you let us know you wish to be vaccinated. We need to hear from you first. If you have questions please contact Ellie or info@REALamoillevt.org.
