On Tuesday, May 24th, we will be holding our final middle school informational evening in the form of an FHUMS Ice Cream Social.  The event will begin by serving ice cream snacks at 5:00 pm, and then move into an informational session, at 5:30 pm, to discuss topics such as band and chorus, construction progress, as well as a time to answer any questions you may have about the middle school.  This evening event will be a follow-up to the student fieldtrip earlier in the afternoon.  We are excited to have all of our grade schools visiting FHU during the school day on May 24th.  We are planning opportunities for students to meet their teachers, spend time with their advisory class ("homeroom"), meet new friends, participate in fun team-building activities, and enjoy a BBQ lunch together.  Overall, we feel the 24th will be a great opportunity for students and families alike! Please feel free to contact Ben Worthing if you have any questions.  We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday!

Dear Slate Valley Staff and Families, Unfortunately Covid-19 is making a resurgence in our area. If anyone is experiencing symptoms, even if you think it is just allergies or other illness, it is still recommended that you test to be sure. You can request tests from the school if you need them. If you are unable to test, you should stay home if you have symptoms until you feel better. You can also choose to wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, keep your hands away from your nose and mouth, clean surfaces frequently and distance yourself where you feel it is necessary. Please see the Department of Health website for more in depth information. Hopefully by following these strategies, we can keep this resurgence to a minimum. https://www.healthvermont.gov/covid-19 Please reach out to your school nurse if you have any questions. Best, Brooke Olsen-Farrell Superintendent

Mr. Merolle's Horticulture students had a blast teaching the Orwell and Fair Haven Grade School 4th-graders about sugaring, grafting apple trees, beekeeping, and sunflower propagation! The 4th-graders came to visit as a part of their service project shipping maple sugar candies to children in Ukraine. It may have been a chilly fieldtrip, but you would not have known it from the excitement and fun all the students had!
