Update on Moultonborough Schools response to COVID-19
Please be aware that the COVID-19 is a rapidly evolving event.
Moultonborough School District's response changes to meet the rapidly changing circumstances. Please check this website daily for any news or adjustments.
For more information, please see Distance Learning page.
All athletic and co-curricular activities are canceled for the duration of the closure.
Distance Learning is in effect until May 4, 2020.
UPDATE APRIL 2, 2020:
From: Patrick Andrew, Superintendent
Based on feedback from staff, students and parents, as well as professional guidance on screen time there will be some changes coming to school schedules in the Moultonborough School District. We will be unplugging on Fridays and not expecting staff or students to be tethered to their devices or staring at a screen. The changes will look different at different grade levels. More guidance on the schedule change will come from your child's principal, but here is a basic overview:
Grades pk-4 will be experiencing "Forest Fridays".
Grades 5-8 will be doing a theme-based activity every Friday.
Grades 9-12 will be using Fridays for enrichment activities, and an opportunity for students to get caught up on work.
Any questions about the schedule should be directed to your child's principal.
The expectation is that everyone unplug from devices best they can, de-stress, decompress, and be sure that they are feeding their body and spirit, as well as their mind. There is still plenty of learning to do even with the screen turned off.
After talking about unplugging on Fridays, I want to send a huge thank you to our amazing technology department for all the work they have done to get us connected! What an an terrific job they have done in helping students and staff connect and continue learning from home.
UPDATE FROM FOOD SERVICES MARCH 27, 2020
As we continue our efforts to support our students and our community through these trying times, we would like to take the opportunity to remind you that applications for meal benefit assistance (free & reduced priced school meals) are accepted throughout the year, and that our office continues to accept and process new applications.
If you have experienced a layoff, loss of employment or even simply a reduction in hours due to the COVID-19 crisis, you may now qualify for meal benefit assistance from USDA.
More information on how to apply for meal benefit assistance can be found on the Distance Learning page on School Meals or by clicking here for English and here for Spanish.
REMEMBER, Moultonborough School District is providing free bagged meals (breakfasts and lunches) for a three and two day time period.
Meals are available for pick up Mondays and Thursdays between the hours of 8-11 at the Academy back kitchen doors.
Please email email@example.com by 7 PM Sunday (for Monday pickup) & Wednesday (for Thursday pick up). Include in the email with the child’s name and if we need to be aware of any allergies.
Please feel free to ask any questions thru this email also and we will do our best to get you answers.
A MESSAGE FROM THE Moultonborough SCHOOL BOARD:
March 18, 2020
From: Jonathan W. Tolman, School Board Chair
Good afternoon all,
We are in unprecedented times and certainly unchartered waters. As you all know by now, the Governor has closed all public schools throughout the state and mandated that we go to “Distance Learning”. Superintendent Andrew has been on top of the situation even before this was official, working with our excellent administration and staff to prepare a plan for this new experience. He is in almost daily contact with me and your School Board has been getting updates as the situation unfolds. I cannot say enough how proud the School Board is of Mr. Andrew, our administration and every employee of the district who are stepping up to the plate in these stressful times to provide as much support as they can to our students!
