Fall Mountain releases hybrid plan for the fall
LANGDON — The Fall Mountain Regional School District plans to open the 2020-2021 school year using a hybrid instructional model, with students attending classes at their school building on alternate days, according to district officials.
Fall Mountain Regional School District Superintendent Lori Landry discussed the framework of the district’s reopening plan at the Fall Mountain School Board meeting Monday night. Approximately 50 people, including school officials, parents and stakeholders, joined the meeting by Google Meet to hear the plan.
While some components of the plan are still in development, Landry said the overall framework will split students into smaller cohorts and alternate their days of attendance in their designated school in an effort to reduce occupancy in buildings and busses and prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus.” More at Eagle Times
USDA Announces a Third Round of Farmers to Families Food Box Program Purchases
Washington, D.C., July 27, 2020 – U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced last week the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will launch a third round of Farmers to Families Food Box Program purchases with distributions to occur beginning by September 1 with completion by October 31, 2020. The purchases will spend the balance of $3 billion authorized for the program. So far, over 46 million Farmers to Families Food Boxes have been invoiced and delivered.
“This third round of Farmers to Families Food Box Program purchases is a testament to the great work done by vendors in support of American agriculture and the American people. It is also a testament that the program is accomplishing what we intended – supporting U.S. farmers and distributors and getting food to those who need it most. It’s a real trifecta, which is why we call it a win-win-win,” said Secretary Perdue. “The efforts of everyone involved form the backbone of the Farmers to Families Food Box Program and its goal to help fill the hunger gap in all of our communities.” More information at USDA Farmers to Families Food Box
