June 10 - Update

Below we have a message from Incoming Superintendent David Wells, as well as an upcoming free food event, and some details on our transition to our Summer Food Service Program.

Message from Incoming Superintendent Wells
I want to take a moment during this busy time of year to update the school community about the work of the BUUSD COVID-19 Committee.  Your safety and that of our students is extremely important to me.  That is why I have begun to work with teachers, principals and central office staff to create a plan for our return to school.  BUUSD is getting ahead of the curve and is following guidance from the Vermont Agency of Education, the Vermont Department of Health and the CDC to inform our planning.  We will need to be flexible as we continue to receive new guidance.  The Vermont  Agency of Education will expect us to present a plan that addresses these key themes:  Safe and Healthy Environments, Leadership, Policy and Funding, Maintaining Operations, and Continuity of Learning.  We will be reaching out to answer your questions and take suggestions once our plan begins to take shape.  Until then, please feel free to address questions to me or one of the representatives below who is working in your building.
