If you were not aware, Chef Adam and Chef Colby are awesome!!! They donated their time Wednesday afternoon (the day before Thanksgiving) to help my Girl Scout Troop make 120 Maple Cream Pies! They are earning money to go to Philly in April and to go River Rafting/Camping in June! Jenny Parent I have 16 girls in the troop, 2 are from Fairfield, 1 is from Milton, 1 is homeschooled, and the rest are from Georgia! The bonus was that this was yet another great way for those girls to make a connection with BFA! Thanks again Chef Adam and Chef Colby!!

To the Members of the BFA School Community, As you may be aware, many students in schools throughout the country are planning to participate in a "walk-out" on Wednesday March 14th to honor those who lost their lives on February 14th in Parkland Fla. We are anticipating some BFA students will be involved. Based on the guidance we received from our school district and the VT Principal's Association, the walk-out will be allowed as long as it is: 1.Safe 2.Student led and 3.Respectful and appropriate In discussing this with some of our students, it is our understanding that they will remain on school grounds and stay within the guidelines noted above. Additionally, school personnel and members of the St. Albans Police department will be monitoring our campus that morning to provide for student safety. We expect that all students will return to regularly scheduled classes following the activity. We will also be respectful and attentive to students who wish to remain in class. In light of recent events, we are doing our best to educate young people during these very challenging times and we deeply appreciate your support. Do not hesitate to let me know if you have any questions or comments. Sincerely, Chris Mosca Principal

Hello everyone, I wanted to take a moment to let you know about events at school today. We were fortunate to have additional officers from the St. Albans Police Department here to help us with security and provide additional support. We also held class meetings with every grade level to answer student questions and hopefully address many of the concerns from yesterday. Students asked perceptive questions and articulated their concerns in a very thoughtful manner. I also wanted to let you know that Corporal Morits our school resource officer and his colleagues continue to vigorously investigate the threatening message and are monitoring our campus to better provide for student safety. Based on the feedback from our school community and in consultation with Corporal Morits, we are making appropriate upgrades to our emergency protocols. We look forward to a full day of school tomorrow and wish everyone a pleasant Winter Break. Sincerely, Chris Mosca Principa

Hello Everyone, In light of events at BFA on Wednesday, February 21st, I know many of you are wondering about the safety of your children. Please know that we work very closely with St. Albans Police Department to make sure we provide the safest environment possible. Chief Taylor is providing additional personnel throughout the day tomorrow. We are extremely grateful for his support and look forward to a full day of school. Sending children to school should never be a complicated matter. Unfortunately, in our world today, we are faced with unprecedented uncertainty. Our goal as always is to provide a secure instructional environment, every day for all students. The predictability and familiar structure of school is essential to young people of all ages and their well-being. We work to make sure that all our students have positive relationships with adults to help guide them through the ups and downs of high school. If you have any questions or concerns feel free to call my office at 527-6404. Sincerely, Chris Mosca Principal

This morning there was a threatening message found in a stall in a NWTC bathroom. SAPD was immediately contacted to ensure that the situation was addressed appropriately and thoroughly. Although a low level threat and likely a hoax, as a precaution we evacuated the buildings and conducted a search to make sure there were no suspicious items in either school. The safety of our children is always our primary concern. Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions. Sincerely, Leeann Wright, NWTC Director Chris Mosca, BFA Principal
