Tragic Loss

posted Dec 5, 2019, 11:30 AM by Vincent Vanier   [ updated Dec 5, 2019, 11:31 AM ]

Dear Parents and Students,

It is with deep regret that we inform you about a recent loss to our school community. This afternoon, Jenna Guillemette, a junior at Madawaska Middle/High School, passed away from complications of an illness while hospitalized. This loss is sure to raise many emotions, concerns, and questions for our entire school, especially our students. Our school has a Crisis Intervention Team made up of professionals trained to help with the needs of students, parents, and school personnel at difficult times such as this. At Madawaska Middle/High School, we will have counselors available this afternoon and evening until 10:00pm, for any student who may need or want help or any type of assistance surrounding this loss. These services will continue throughout the day tomorrow. We encourage you, as parents, to also feel free to use our resources. We want to let parents and students know that we will have a crisis team available at the school this afternoon and evening until 10:00pm, and throughout the school day tomorrow, to assist in dealing with this tragic loss. If students need assistance they may make use of these services. If additional services are needed throughout the evening, please do not hesitate to call the AMHC Crisis Hotline 1-888-568-1112. We are saddened by the loss to our school community and will make every effort to help you and your child as you need. 

Sincerely, 

Benjamin Sirois 

Superintendent of Schools

11-12 Snow Day Change

posted Nov 13, 2019, 5:33 AM by Vincent Vanier   [ updated Nov 13, 2019, 8:25 AM ]

calendarDue to the snow day on Tuesday, November 12th we will need to make up that day on our school calendar.  Instead of making the day up at the end of the year in June, it was decided that Friday, December 20 is no longer an early dismissal, and Monday, December 23 is a storm make-up day with a 12:00pm dismissal.  See the attached VUESC regional calendar.  Since November 12th should have been a "W" day, then the make-up day on December 23rd will also be a "W" day.

Potato Harvest News

posted Oct 3, 2019, 3:43 PM by Vincent Vanier

This potato harvest season started off as a wet one, and many of our local farmers are behind schedule.  Because of this, there have been several requests from local farmers to allow for high school harvest workers to have some extra days to work on the farms.  Valley Unified Schools have created a Harvest Break Extension Request form for harvest workers to complete, which will allow them up to 5 extra days of harvest work, which will be an accepted excuse from school.  This is only available to students in grades 9-12, and must be completed fully to be accepted. 

Harvest workers, farmers, or family members can pick up a Harvest Break Extension Request form at Madawaska Middle/High School, the Superintendent's Office, or download the form by clicking on the image below.
