Pre-k has been fascinated with finding worms in our new "digging spot". Thanks to some great work done by Glenn Campbell and friends- there is now a perfect spot for the preschoolers to practice shoveling, raking, and digging. They are learning how to handle worms gently and what to do with the worms to keep them safe. Many of the children say that the worms are one of their favorite things about school!

On Wednesday, October 3, beginning at 2:18 p.m. Eastern Time, there will be a nationwide test of the Integrated Public Alert and Warning System (IPAWS). The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), in coordination with the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), will conduct a nationwide test of IPAWS and its Emergency Alert System (EAS) and Wireless Emergency Alerts (WEA) to (1) assess the operational readiness of the infrastructure for distribution of a national message, and (2) determine whether improvements are needed. The WEA portion of the test commences at 2:18 p.m. ET and the EAS portion follows at 2:20 p.m. ET. This test message will be sent to cell phones that are connected to wireless providers participating in WEA, which is why it is important to make local education agencies (LEAs) aware in advance. Veazie Community School will use this time to conduct a safety drill and discuss school safety protocol with students (something we practice on a regular basis). In the event of an actual crisis, Veazie Community School will use our mass-communication system to send out emails, phone calls, text messages, website posts, as well as posts onto the social media platforms Facebook and Twitter. If you haven't already downloaded our app, please consider doing so from the App Store or Google Play. We will also send push notification through the App. (These are the same procedures we will use during weather-related school cancellations otherwise known as SNOW DAYS) Please contact Mr. Cyr if you have any questions or concerns. Here is a link provided by FEMA with more information about their upcoming test: https://www.fema.gov/media-library-data/1522681998488-cfbe1a1f654b8d4413e925f4945bf382/American_Public_Fact_Sheet_2017.pdf
