CVU students raise Black Lives Matter flag

ESSEX, Vt. – The Essex Westford School District Board voted unanimously to fly the Black Lives Matter flag at each of its schools for the 2020-2021 school year.

Each flag will be raised together simultaneously on Thursday.

Three of the District’s schools already have the BLM flag up, but each will re-raise it to show solidarity with Black students.

Due to COVID-19, the community is not invited to the event. It will be livestreamed from Essex High School on the District’s Facebook page.

A short ceremony with speeches will be held before the flags are raised. If families are interested in participating, they’re asked to reach out to the building principal at their school.
