Habits of Mind: “Safe, Responsible, Respectful, Ready to Learn”




Veteran’s Day

The K-1st graders learned about Veteran’s Day and what amazing things the men, women and even dogs of the armed forces do and have done to protect our country and us on a daily basis. Below are a few thank you drawings they made that we sent off to a local Veterans home this week in recognition of their service to our country.





Plans to travel out of state?

UPDATED: 11/10/2020 

UPDATE-    The State of Vermont has suspended its leisure travel map and implemented a mandatory quarantine for anyone returning or traveling to Vermont. 

Anyone returning or traveling to Vermont must follow Vermont’s mandatory quarantine policy. Vermonters returning from an out-of-state trip must complete either14-day quarantine or 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test.

Vermonters must remember to follow any travel restrictions and quarantine requirements for the states they plan to visit.

Residents of other states must adhere to the quarantine guidelines:

o    Travelers arriving to Vermont in a personal vehicle must complete either 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in their home state and enter Vermont without further quarantine restrictions.

o    Travelers arriving to Vermont who have not completed a pre-arrival quarantine must complete either a 14-day quarantine or a 7-day quarantine followed by a negative test in a Vermont lodging establishment or with friends and family (travelers must stay in their quarantine location for the duration of quarantine other than to travel to and from a test site).

o    Read more about quarantining at the Vermont Department of Health website.

 All out of state travelers utilizing lodging, camping and short-term rental properties in Vermont must sign and complete a Certificate of Compliance or affirm a compliance statement via a digital check box at the time of reservation and check-in to attest that they meet the quarantine requirement or are an essential/authorized worker.

 All out of state travelers are strongly encouraged to register with Sara Alert upon arrival to Vermont to get two weeks of daily reminders to check for common symptoms of COVID-19.
