👍 Dr. Rebecca J. Heick, assistant professor of public health, keeps things straight for a local report on the decline in COVID-19 cases: "It doesn’t mean that we’re in the clear, that is one thing I want to be very frank about is that this decrease in cases isn’t some kind of an all-clear flag that we can kind of all go back to our normal lives."

Bus pickup location changing temporarily

As of Friday, the Burlington Trailways bus service will use the circle driveway in front of Carlsson-Evald Hall. This is a temporary change due to the congestion caused by snow and construction around the usual pickup spot at Carver PE Center.

A recorded performance of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-time will be presented live March 4-7. The story is told from the perspective of a 15-year-old gifted autistic boy determined to find out who killed his neighbor's dog. Here are Virgil Hajdys as Christopher, the protagonist, and Ravyn Davis as his school mentor. The production uses lighting and sound effects to show Christopher’s experience of the world.
