District Commitment

The MTSD is committed to the health and safety of all members of the learning organization, the social and emotional well being of students and staff, and ensuring that all students have equitable access to a high-quality teaching and learning experience. In reopening our schools amid the COVID19 global pandemic, we will be prioritizing the public health of our community.
We want all children and staff back at school. In order to do this as safely as possible, we will align our reopening with recommendations from the Vermont Department of Health and Agency of Education. We will continue to work closely with our State and Regional partners and make decisions informed by science and State epidemiological data. Our plan for reopening school will allow us to be nimble and move quickly to respond to the changing trajectory of the virus.

The COVID19 situation continues to rapidly evolve. Information shared by the MTSD is subject to change based on new scientific data and guidance provided to us by the VT Agency of Education (VT AOE) and the VT Department of Health (VTDH).

The purpose of this page is to provide you with guidance on COVID-19 practices within our district.   Please note that this is subject to change based on current data, trends and guidance from the Agency of Education and the Vermont Department of Health.
