Dear BUUSD Community,
First, I’d like you to know that our vaccine clinics for children aged 5-11 started today at BCEMS, and they were a big success! Hundreds of students got their first dose of the vaccine today. More clinics are set up at our schools through Saturday, and there are still currently some slots available!
You can sign up for the clinic at Barre Town School on November 18 here:
Additional appointments are available now!
You can sign up for the clinic at Spaulding High School on November 18 here:
Please continue to check the websites often!
And now for last week’s Covid case count…
For the week of November 8-12 (plus the weekend and this Monday), we are now at 186 confirmed positive student and adult cases in school (leading to a need to contact trace) in the BUUSD since the start of the year. This means that including today, we have had 29 new cases since November 8. Similar to what’s going on all around Vermont, this is a significant uptick from recent weeks. The case counts by school:
- SHS: 28 total cases; 6 new cases since November 8
- BTMES: 87 total cases; 12 new cases since November 8
- BCEMS: 65 total cases; 10 new cases since November 8
- CVCC: 6 total cases; 1 new case since November 8
We hope you find this information helpful, and please let us know if you have any questions. The plan is to share these updates at the beginning of each week going forward.
