NEW! Student-created weekly paper! The Corona Chronicles

Hello EFMS community,

It's my pleasure to introduce you to the first issue of The Corona Chronicles, an online newspaper that is, in the words of founder and editor Chloe Hurtubise,

"hopefully an escape from everything going on in our world today. It's very important to know about daily news, but sometimes it’s too much. So, this paper will contain things like music suggestions, movies to watch/netflix recommendations, books to read, fun activities, best virtual tours, things to bake/make, and anything else you want!"

In order to access The Corona Chronicles home page, click on the following link: https://sites.google.com/stu.fnesu…/thecoronachronicles/home

Once there, you can view the first issue in the upper right hand corner of the page ( Issue #1- 4/10/20 ). Later issues will be added in the same location.

Finally, this paper wouldn't be possible without you! Got something to contribute or suggest? Send it along to daniel.clarke@fnesu.org and you just might see it in print!

Remember, during this difficult time, being socially distant doesn't mean we can't stay connected! This paper tries to help.

We hope you enjoy!

Mr. Clarke

Effective as of 3:00 Tuesday afternoon, March 17, 2020, the EFMHS campus will be CLOSED TO ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS.

Effective as of 3:00 Tuesday afternoon, March 17, 2020, the EFMHS campus will be CLOSED TO ALL COMMUNITY MEMBERS. This includes spaces such as weight rooms and the gym. The only people permitted inside the building staring this afternoon at 3:00pm will be school employees who have a requirement or expectation to be there.

We know many people in our community access spaces like the gym and weight rooms. For the health and safety of our school, these spaces will not be available until the school reopens to full capacity and we will inform the community when that time arrives.

The school will be undergoing cleaning during this time of closure and we ask that community members respect the work being done and place the safety and health of students and staff above their own desires to access these spaces. Community members accessing the space will compromise that work.

Please contact us at 933-7777 should you have questions about this directive. Thank you for your cooperation.

Vermont Youth Project

***This survey will be administered on Friday, October 4th to 7th and 8th grade students. If you do not wish for your child to participate, please call the office at 933-5354 or email karen.ovitt@fnesu.org

The Franklin Northeast Supervisory Union is excited to participate in the Vermont Youth Project. This project works with the Icelandic Center for Social Research and Analysis (ICSRA) to implement the Icelandic Model for Adolescent Substance Use Prevention. This model is one which draws on our student perceptions about where they live, and then for community members to draw on these ideas so that we can develop environments where substance abuse is reduced. If this sounds pretty simple, it is. In effect, we are saying that if we listen very closely to what our kids are telling us, we can use their feelings to create environments where substance abuse is reduced drastically. Rather than drawing on lengthy documents which can be biased by what we think, the beauty of the Icelandic Model is that it says for us, the adults, to listen to the true experts: our children.

In order to complete this study, we will give your child a survey. Questions on the survey include student perceptions of their school, community, and peers. Sometimes students have a hard time avoiding substance use because of factors that can be viewed as sensitive. Yet, in order for us to get to the very real issues facing our kids, we must ask a few questions that may be considered intrusive by some. These include questions about using cigarettes, alcohol, or other drugs. Still, one reason why this model has been so successful, is that it dares to ask our children the very questions they deal with all the time. Instead of avoiding issues, this model says, in effect, that we must listen to our kids real closely and if we do, the answers will be revealed so that we can act on them.
