We are Looking for a Match!
December 1, 2020 is the National Day of Giving- Giving Tuesday.
This year the school will be campaigning for the BJAMS Kitchen Project.
We are looking for a company, charitable trust, stocks, or family business that would consider matching the donations made for this day or match up to a percentage or certain monetary value.
This is the number one way to accelerate our campaign and help our kitchen with much needed renovations including flooring, additional work space, upgraded appliances, and more.
Please consider being the perfect match for our school!

What’s the Difference Between COVID-19 and the Flu?
Influenza (flu) and COVID-19 are both contagious respiratory illnesses, but they are caused by different viruses. One important difference is that there is a vaccine for the flu!
It’s more important than ever to get your flu shot this year – when flu viruses and the new coronavirus are spreading at the same time. Because some of the symptoms of flu and COVID-19 are similar, it may be hard to tell the difference between them based on symptoms alone, and testing may be needed to help confirm a diagnosis.
Flu and COVID-19 share many characteristics, but key differences include:
- COVID-19 seems to spread more easily than flu and causes more serious illnesses in some people.
- It can take longer before people show symptoms of COVID-19, and people can be contagious with the COVID-19 virus for longer.
Learn more about the similarities and differences from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The Vermont Department of Health encourages everyone older than 6 months old (with rare exceptions) — and especially people in a high-risk group or who have underlying health conditions — to get their flu vaccine. Learn more about the flu and find a flu shot.
