It is a Powerful Fact

Tuesday morning we celebrated the first official day of our 2020-2021 school year at St. Johnsbury Academy—it is the Academy’s 178th—a year, it is safe to say, like no other the school has seen before. The energy on campus was happy and excited as thermometers beeped, and all of us were obviously smiling under our masks. As students gathered in their advisory groups both in person and online, faculty and staff advisors read announcements and played a short audio message from me in lieu of morning chapel.

Faculty In-Service Day
Fuller Hall looked a little less than full on Friday, when members of the senior class were present for part of the orientation events.
Students arriving on campus by car will have their health checks performed at the Main Street entrance by the athletic fields.
Students walking, or riding, onto campus each morning will have their health checks at South Church Hall or Fuller Hall.
Music and art classes will be taking advantage of the good weather and will be holding their classes outside under a new tent on Stowe Green.
