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.

Barre City Elementary & Middle School Remote Learning Poster

Our hope is that this document will serve as a guide for students, families and community members to understand what remote learning looks like for all Barre City students, grades Pre-K to 8. The BCEMS faculty and staff have been hard at work since the start of the pandemic in the spring to make remote learning engaging and meaningful for our students. We are proud of the learning experience we have in place, but we know that there will always be room for growth and improvement in these incredibly uncertain times.

BCEMS 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. Barre City Elementary and Middle School participated in pilot testing in Spring 2018.  Based on those results, we received a waiver on new testing and remediated based on results from 2018.
