Dear PAML Families, Thank you all once again for your flexibility and understanding as we made the decision to move to remote learning for an additional day this week.  Our pivot to remote learning went quite smoothly for most, and we were able to quickly implement some additional live opportunities for the portion of students who were required to be remote on Thursday.  We’re …

PAML Family Communication – January 8, 2021

Dear PAML Families, Happy New Year! It is my sincere hope that everyone had a restful and rejuvenating break.  2021 certainly did not waste any time bringing challenging situations to our school community.  The events of Wednesday in Washington DC put educators in both a difficult and empowering situation.  Here at PAML we spent time in our advisory periods on Thursday and Friday to …

PAML Family Update – December 23, 2020

Dear PAML Families, Getting to this point in the school year often feels like half-time.  The holiday break actually has very little connection to any actual half-way mark in the year but it feels like it nonetheless.  It’s a good time to reassess and re-focus upon our return.  As I look back on the fall season I am confident that we did the work …

PAML Family Communication – December 18, 2020

Dear PAML Families, Earlier this week I spent some time looking at the Covid-19 modelling data for Vermont.  One of the conclusions that I was able to make is that Vermont did not experience the expected surge in cases following the Thanksgiving holiday.  Vermonters as a whole and particularly our school community did an excellent job following the Governor’s guidance.  The result was little …

PAML Family Communication – December 11, 2020

Dear PAML Families, We have worked so hard to create a safe, stable, and consistent learning environment for our students.  Our hard work has paid off in the relatively disruption-free environment that we have been able to operate within this fall.  What once felt new and different now feels routine, what used to be anxiety causing now feels safe.  We have found our rhythm …

PAML Family Communication – December 4, 2020

Dear PAML Families, I am happy to report that our return from Thanksgiving break has gone quite smoothly.  Our conversations with families in advance of and following the break lead us to believe that our community did a fabulous job adhering to the governor’s regulations by avoiding multi-household gatherings.  In a recent radio interview with a school official from our region I heard the …

PAML Family Communication – November 24, 2020

Dear PAML Families, As we prepare to depart for our Thanksgiving break it feels appropriate to acknowledge that Morrisville is the ancestral home of the Abenaki people.  Acknowledging the land stewardship of indigenous people who called this area home thousands of years before us is one small step that we can take to create a more equitable and just school community. I would also …

PAML Family Update – November 20, 2020

Dear PAML Families, A few reminders to start:  As you make plans for the holiday season please pay attention to Vermont’s Cross State Travel and social gathering guidance (more on this in the slideshow). For the safety of our screeners please wear a face covering while dropping off students in the morning.    Here at PAML we remain committed to providing a safe in-person learning …
