EVENTS AND NOTICES


SUMMER SCHOOL IS OVER
Staff members are now working on all the beginning of the school year planning and paperwork that keeps St. Albans City School going.  We are looking forward to seeing everyone back at school in late August.  Note the important dates and the calendar above.




PHONES
This message is mostly for people working at St. Albans City School over the summer. As you may have heard we have been getting new phones installed throughout the building. The new phones are currently functional and can dial other new phones as well as make outside calls but they will not receive incoming calls. In order to make incoming calls work, we will be doing what's called a "port" of our external phone numbers. This port is scheduled to take place Monday, August 13th in the afternoon around 3pm. 

During this time phone service may be briefly interrupted. We are suggesting people not schedule any important calls around that time.

An email will be sent to employees when the port is complete.

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we set up the new phone system!






DO YOU WANT TO BE ABLE TO WALK OR BIKE SAFELY TO AND FROM THE WALMART / HANNAFORD / PRICE CHOPPER SHOPPING DISTRICT?

Consider attending a public meeting on Tuesday, August 14th. You can hear what is being proposed and can voice your interests and concerns.  Please note the meeting is in the TOWN HALL, not the City Hall.














REPORTS AND PICTURES


ORCHESTRA
New Orchestra teacher, Mr. Rusty Charpentier came by St. Albans City School to see how he could let you know about joining the district orchestra. He decided that a short video might be best as a way to get the information across to you. Would you be interested in playing in the Maplerun Unified School District Orchestra? If so, check out this brief video he made.  LINK TO 2-MINUTE VIDEO

GARDENS
It has been a hot and dry summer. The recent rains have perked up our plants and that is a wonderful thing to see. Our fruit trees dropped a lot of fruit during the dry days. Nevertheless, some trees will deliver a good amount of apples for family and consumer science and farm to school activities in September. The Fall vegetable garden has some items (potatoes, brussel sprouts and tomatoes) that are thriving.

REACHING ST. ALBANS CITY SCHOOL BY PHONE
Over the next two weeks, our school will be installing a new phone system. This change is welcome since our old system is beginning to fail. For example, right now we have no voicemail system so if you want to reach us with a question or information you will need to do so during working hours - 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday-Friday. We appreciate your patience as we upgrade our infrastructure.

PHONES
The Maple Run School District is upgrading its phone system to improve communication within and between our schools. Over the summer re-wiring of all the MRUSD buildings have taken place using fiber-optic cables. On Thursday 8-9-2018, the actual phone units arrived at St. Albans City School Building for installation. The changeover can't come fast enough as we are experiencing some challenges with our old phone system.
