Congratulations and Good Luck to the Peoples Academy Graduating Class of 2022

As we say goodbye to another successful year at Peoples Academy, we would like to thank you all for your support and patience. We are thankful for the supportive and understanding school community, of which you are an important part. There are some important dates and events listed below that you may want to mark on your calendars. This will be our final communication for the 2021-22 academic year. We will, however, still be here at PA throughout the summer. Please feel free to call, email, or stop by with any questions or ideas. We hope you have a wonderful summer.

Rising 9th graders at Step Up Day – see you on August 29th!

Summer Recovery: Peoples Academy will be able to provide limited learning opportunities this summer for students who haven’t quite met proficiency, but are close.  We will have teachers available throughout the summer for students who need some extra time and instruction to reach proficiency* in all or part of the course. In-person support options will be available depending on the circumstance.  Proficiency recovery will be individualized depending on the needs of each student and the availability of the teacher for that particular content area. Depending on individual needs, students may be given supported time to complete or improve specific assignments or they may be assigned additional projects.

Students who are not close to meeting proficiency as their courses come to an end, will need to work with their counselor to either retake that particular course, or find an appropriate alternative.  Please reach out to Carrie or Lindsey in the guidance office if you have any questions or concerns.

Returnable Items:  We need your help. We have worked very hard to get computer devices, library books, textbooks, uniforms and other materials loaned to students back to school and to have cafeteria debts paid off. Please take care of any debt and return all loaned items to the office by July 5th. Summer office hours are Monday – Friday, 7:30AM-3:30PM. Thank you for your help.

Technology for Seniors and Other Departing Students,  On or about August 15th, we will be disabling your school Google account. If you want or need access to those files after that date, prior to August 15th, you will first need to transfer the contents of your school Google account to a personal Google account or download and store the data in some other way. The link below will take you to a Google article with information on the process.   https://support.google.com/accounts/answer/6386856

Alternatively, if you do not have a personal Google account and do not wish to have a personal Google account, you are able to download the contents of your Google Account to your computer to do with as you please.  See the link below for instructions on how to do so.  Archiving Google Data

Please feel free to contact tech support if you have any questions at lsuutech@lsuu.org.

PA & PAML Community Advisory Council:  This summer PA and PAML will be launching a Community Advisory Council.  This group will meet regularly (probably once a month) to help PA and PAML make progress toward our district’s goals (Instruction, Equity, Collaborative Teams) as well as to provide vital feedback necessary to keep both ends of our building moving forward in a positive direction.  We are seeking as diverse a group as possible to join in this effort.  

Please indicate your interest in joining by filling out the PA and PAML Community Advisory Council form.  It’s possible that we may have more interest than what is optimal for a well functioning group.  If we do get such a high level of interest (and we sure hope we do!) we will select a diverse and representative group from this list. 

Yearbook 2022:  Just in case you forgot, we still have a few copies of the 2022 Yearbook available for purchase, $58.  Swing by or call 802-888-4600.

Monday, August 29th is scheduled as the first day of school and is reserved for incoming 9th graders and new students only. The reason for this is to provide a smooth and focused transition day that is attentive to the specific needs of new students. Thus for 10th, 11th and 12th graders, Tuesday, August 30th will be their first day of school.  Please note that the start time for the school day is 7:55am.

Co-Curricular Activities
Congratulations to our Baseball Team for being the Division III State Champions for the second year in a row.

 If your student is planning to participate in a fall sport, please be on the lookout for information on how to register and practice schedules. The first day of practice is scheduled for August 18th.  It is important that students register prior to participation. There will be a mandatory pre-season meeting prior to the first day of practice. Our website will be updated shortly to provide you with the most accurate game schedules and updates.

Community
COVID-19 Testing:  As a reminder, schools are NOT being re-supplied with covid-19 tests moving forward. In addition, with the school year ending it’s good to plan ahead for testing to keep family/friends/the community safe and healthy during the summer months.  Here is where you can get tests/tested https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19/testing/where-get-tested

FREE HEALTH DEPARTMENT TESTING You can be tested at a Health Department testing site through the end of June, through your healthcare provider, or at many local pharmacies. People with or without symptoms can be tested at most testing locations.Free take-home tests that give you rapid results are available at many Health Department testing sites! Testing is recommended for people with symptoms, and close contacts of someone with COVID-19 who are not up to date on vaccines. We encourage Vermonters to have home tests on hand, in case they develop symptoms.  When you make an appointment, you can choose from three types of tests:  Take-home antigen, Take-home LAMP (similar to PCR), PCR.

You can get up to four antigen test kits for each appointment (there are two tests per kit, for eight tests total), but only one LAMP per appointment.  You can make an appointment (online or call 802-863-7240) or just walk in. An appointment guarantees you a test. ASL interpretation is available by video at all Health Department testing sites.
