IMPORTANT VEAZIE COMMUNITY SCHOOL UPDATE EARLY RELEASE: Monday, January 10 (12:15 dismissal for PreK; and 12:30 dismissal for Kindergarten - Grade 8) Dear VCS Staff and Families, Last night, the Veazie School Committee unanimously voted to modify our school year calendar to include an early release for students next Monday, January 10. Pre-K students will be dismissed at 12:15. Students in Kindergarten through Grade 8 will be dismissed at 12:30. Our lunch program will not be impacted (students wanting hot lunch will be served at their regularly scheduled times). We continue to do our very best to keep students and staff safe while providing in-person learning at VCS. Despite our efforts, positive case rates for COVID-19 are exponentially increasing in our region and state. We must accept and prepare for the reality that Veazie Community School could be faced with a situation where we would not have enough staff present to safely operate school. For this reason, we are scheduling an early release on 1/10/21 to provide staff time to collaborate, plan, and prepare for the possibility of short-term remote instruction. We are in hopes that this will only be a precautionary measure---plan for the worst and hope for the best. Thank you for your continued support. Sincerely, Matthew D. Cyr Superintendent & Principal Veazie Community School

Congratulations to the Veazie Community School Viking Robotics Team on winning the Global Innovation Award at Saturday's State of Maine Robotics Competition!!! Their winning project was a proposal to manufacture shipping containers made out of carbon fiber. Carbon fiber significantly reduces container weight without sacrificing strength, which in turn reduces the amount of fuel needed when being transported by shipping vessels, trains, and trucks. Go Viking Robotics!!
The VCS Student Council would like to invite all students and staff for wear their pajamas on Wednesday!
