The Southwest Vermont Supervisory Union was notified earlier today of positive tests of COVID-19  within the Mt. Anthony Union Middle School learning community. In keeping with Vermont Department of Health and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines, our team took immediate steps to isolate the situation. We are working closely with local and state officials to ensure our community remains safe and healthy.

After meeting with the Vermont Department of Health, all close contacts were determined and notified. Trained maintenance staff will engage in a thorough sanitation process of all surfaces within the affected spaces. The building will be closed to staff and students. Students will engage in remote learning the week of January 11-15. Food pickup will remain available at the middle school from 7:30-12.

These are all of the details we are permitted to release at this time. Please continue to check and our social media accounts for the most up-to-date information. Please be assured that we continue to plan for a safe and healthy school environment by implementing best practices in alignment with guidance from the Vermont Department of Health and the Vermont Agency of Education. 

Stay safe and healthy,

James R. Culkeen

Superintendent of Schools
