preschool screening

It’s that time of year when we start planning for our annual Prekindergarten Screening and Open House.  This event will be held later this year due to the need to plan around COVID health and safety guidelines.  We anticipate Prekindergarten Screening and Open House will take place for both Barre City and Barre Town Prekindergarten programs in May.  The date will be announced as it is finalized.

In-Person Learning Plan

After being remote through the month of December, the Reopening Team at BUUSD has been routinely meeting to discuss and plan how we can maximize in-person learning while still carefully following the Strong & Healthy Start guidance from the Vermont Agency of Education.

Beginning on January 19, 2021, BUUSD intends to begin a phased transition to full in-person instruction. Click here or the image above to learn more.

Tech Tip of the Month-February

The attached slideshow will explain the features of TikTok, how to view/create content in the app, and the very important privacy settings that all users should consider.  There is a slide that contains explicit videos that you may not want to watch with younger children around. These videos were included to show you what is easily accessible to all users of the TikTok app. 

As always, if you have any questions or suggestions for next month's topic, please email our Technology Integrationist, Jess VanOrman, jvanobte@buusd.org 

Tech Tip of the Month- January

This month's tech topic is primarily for middle school families. At BTMES we use Infinite Campus to track attendance, grades and student data.  Infinite Campus has a parent portal that you can use to see a live view of your student's progress which is available for grades 5-8.  You can see grades as they are scored, attendance records, and assignments that are missing and much more. Click to learn more about the app and how to use it!

BTMES Lead Testing

The State of Vermont passed a new law in 2019 that requires all schools and child care providers to test their drinking water for lead. Under this new law, Barre Town Middle and Elementary School was one of the first schools in the state to complete testing.
