Student Volunteers needed at the museum at the Little Red Schoolhouse
- The Williamstown Historical Museum’s signature fundraiser event, the Fall Harvest Fair, on Sunday, October 8th, 11am to 3pm.
- Student volunteers will:
- Assist running games (egg & spoon, sack race, three-legged, tug of war)
- Lemonade stand
- Manage carnival booths (ring toss, etc.)
- Assist at an old-time photo booth
- The helpers could perhaps assist in two shifts: 11am to 1pm; 1pm to 3pm.
- Lunch and drink would be provided.
- Also: we are looking for any students who can juggle OR walk on stilts. It would be awesome if a student could provide that entertainment in an old-time way – perhaps dressing up and walking around the fair, performing.

- Friday 9/14 is a half day (dismissal at 1110).
- Students can order take home lunch through their PowerSchool tomorrow by 9am

COVID Update -
We encourage our community to participate in COVID-19 vaccination opportunities.
We will continue to support any community member in wearing a mask at any time.
If someone tests positive for COVID-19, they must isolate for at least five days. If they are asymptomatic or symptoms are resolving, and they have been fever-free without using fever-reducing medicine for 24 hours, they may return to school after Day 5 (where Day 0 is the day of the positive test). After returning to school, they should wear a high-quality mask through Day 10. If someone has a negative test on Day 5 or later, they no longer need to mask.
If someone has COVID-19 symptoms (see the list below), they may remain in school if they have mild symptoms and test negative for COVID-19.
- Fever (100.0° Fahrenheit or higher), chills, or shaking chills
- Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
- New loss of taste or smell
- Muscle aches or body aches
- Cough (not due to other known causes, such as a chronic cough)
- Sore throat, when in combination with other symptoms
- Nausea, vomiting, when in combination with other symptoms
- Headache, when in combination with other symptoms
- Fatigue, when in combination with other symptoms
- Nasal congestion or runny nose (not due to other known causes, such as allergies), when in combination with other symptoms
If someone is in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19, they should wear a mask for ten days following their most recent exposure. Suppose they cannot isolate themselves from the person who tested positive. In that case, they should start wearing a mask and continue wearing it until ten days after their last contact with the person while the person is considered contagious by their physician. The best practice is to take an at-home antigen test 5-6 days following the last exposure to COVID-19.
Students will have ample time to make up missed assignments and coursework if absent due to COVID.
