Third CliF Book Give Away

As a recipient of the CliF grant awarded to Flynn school, our Flynntastic students will receive a total of 10 books. Flynn staff are offering 5 CliF book giveaways, building on themes of the moment: “Fall for Books,” “Snow Many Books,” and “Flynn Fireflies love books.” Students LOVE this opportunity to choose new books to keep forever! Their reactions include:

“Wow! We get to pick out 2 books to keep?”

“I can’t wait till the next time!”

“I am going to read to my cat!”

“These are the best books!”

“I am going to share my books with my little sister.”

Remote Learning During Inclement Weather

While the snow may not have been what was predicted, we have now used up our two traditional snow days. For most students, these days will be made up on June 15 and 16. If inclement weather hits again, we will not have a traditional “Snow Day” but will pivot to remote learning. Here’s what you can expect:

K-5 - Students and families should expect teachers to greet students at their regular (Wednesday) meeting times on their Google Classroom links. Additional learning plans for the day will be communicated by the classroom teacher. Attendance will be taken at the morning meetings. We look forward to a productive and fun day of learning.

Meals During Break

During Vacation week, meal boxes will only be available on Wednesday the 24th. You can pick up a box on Wednesday the 24th from 3-4 at Burlington High School, Sustainability Academy, Champlain Elementary, or the Boys and Girls Club at Roosevelt Park.

Kits will also be delivered to Bobbin Mill and Franklin Square from 11:00-11:30 AM, and delivered to South Meadow and Northgate from 11:45 AM to 12:15 PM. These Family Meal Kits are free and are provided for any child under 19 years old. There is no income requirement, you do not have to have your child present to receive a box, and there is plenty of food to go around. Please pick up a box to help your children get through the winter break.
