Principal's Message

July 2021

Hello EFMS families- those new to us and those returning!


We are looking forward to a post-COVID school year that looks and feels more "normal" this year! Please stay tuned for updates on that- we expect that the VT Agency of Education along with the VT Dept. of Health will still be releasing some COVID-related health and safety guidelines for the 20201-22 school year an when we know them we will share that information.


In the meantime, here is some information related to commonly asked questions that come up in the summer!


Registering a NEW student: If you would like to register a student NEW to our school system (not for a student coming to us from EES), please complete this form. Again this is only for students NEW to our district this year. Please also call us at (802) 933-5354 and leave a message with any questions.

New Student Registration:


Returning student information: We send out registration and back-to-school packets in late July/early August for all students entering 6th grade from EES and for our returning 7th and 8th graders. Be on the lookout for that information soon!


School Supplies: Some families like to get a jump start on gathering school supplies for the new school year! Though we send information about school supplies in out back-to-school mailing, here is what we recommend should you wish to get things early.

- One large 3-ring zippered binder

- 4 folders (one for each core class)

- Pencils

- A backpack

- Lined Paper or a notebook

- A refillable water bottle

- OPTIONAL (not needed but nice to have): headphones with a standard adapter to use with chromebook, colored pencils, markers, mini sharpener, highlighters, glue stick, pens


Start of School Events: We are hoping to again offer families a 6th grade & New Student Night this year. Please save the date of August 18th, 2021! This will be an evening to visit the school, meet the teachers, practice with lockers, and see the classrooms before school begins! We are waiting on the new fall guidance before making this official, so please save the date for now! We are also hoping to offer a fall open house in September- please stay tuned for the date and details!
