Staying Healthy!
As we are in the midst of cold and flu season here are a few tips to help you stay well:
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze.  If a tissue is not available, cough or sneeze into your sleeve/elbow and always wash your hands with soap and water after.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth as this is a common way for germs to spread.
  • If you have a fever (100.0 degrees or higher) stay at home until you are fever free for at least 24 hours(without fever reducing medications like tylenol).
  • Wash, wash, wash your hands frequently with soap and water or use an alcohol based hand sanitizer.
  • Flu shots are still available-call the office of your doctor or the local pharmacies such as Kinney Drugs or Rite Aid.
Please feel free to call SACS Nurses' Office, 527-0565, #3 for any questions that you may have.

Engineering Day

Wow, students really demonstrated how driven they are to be involved in enriching, hands on activities.  We received 84 applications for Engineering Day but due to numbers allowed to go we could only accept 50.  We always show up with the most students out of any school and so are taking the maximum for which we have spots.  Students were selected based on the following criteria.

  • First and most important was the quality of the application.  When students were asked to give ideas, applications that demonstrated time spend thinking and researching, including multiple ideas and specific examples, were placed at the top of the list.
  • After that, grade and if you had attended before were taken into consideration.
Applications were carefully looked over and although we can't take everyone, we are excited to see how many students would be able to represent St. Albans City School.  Some students who applied will be doing that this year and we hope that other students will be taking on the challenge in future years.  Students who were accepted were sent an email detailing next steps.  If you did not receive an email and would like to know why, feel free to go visit or email Ms. Bertucci.


The full orchestra is rehearsing this afternoon for tonights 4 through 8 string concert, to be performed in the Library at 7 pm. 5th and 6th grade Junior Band is rehearsing today at 12:15. Students are reminded to attend, even if you do not have your instrument.
