Online Class Etiquette from EWSDWe want to remind parents that now that learning takes place in this way, in the home, teachers need your help in supervising and monitoring online behavior as students interact with new tools and methods.
If you have a EWSD-issued Chromebook please review the Caring for your Chromebook at Home guidelines at the Technology Department's webpage.We are all in this together and the role of you as parents/guardians is crucial to its success! For any technology needs please contact Helpdesk via email or at (802) 857-7777, M-F 8-4 p.m.
- You have the right to tell us that you do not want your child to have their video camera enabled for video/audio conferencing (notify your teacher).
- Students should dress as they would when attending school
- Students should join the video conference from an appropriate space in the home (such as at a kitchen table, desk, common space, etc., not laying/sitting on their bed or walking around with the computer in their hands)
- Students should refrain from “showing their classmates around the house”
COVID-19 and Our Schools
Your EWSD nurses are here to support the health and wellness of our entire school community. We are all aware of the prolonged flu season and the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The District continues to follow preventative and response guidelines offered by the Vermont Department of Health (VDH) and Vermont Agency of Education (AOE).
Your building nurse is available for any questions or concerns you may have regarding any illness or symptoms.

ADL Welcomed Guest Speaker: Loung Ung
On Friday, February 21st, bestselling author Loung Ung, returned to ADL. Loung is an author, activist, and lecturer and a graduate of Albert D. Lawton Intermediate School.
Her former teacher, Mr. Gustafson, invited Loung to speak to the entire 6th grade about her books, experiences, and career. Loung's first book, First They Killed My Father, was turned into a movie directed by Angelina Jolie.
Loung was a wonderful speaker, keeping the kids under her spell during her speech. The students asked lots of thoughtful questions, it was a great educational experience for all of us. Thanks for coming back to visit us, Loung!
