The recreational vehicle owned by Chris Deady and his wife, Sue, has taken them and their three boys camping to scenic locales all over the Northeast. But their 2018 thirty-four-foot Coachman Travel Trailer has just made its most important journey of all – to the home of a Stoughton firefighter/paramedic who might need it to isolate himself from his family just in case he is exposed to the coronavirus.

Chris, who is the lead teacher in the Graphic Communications program at Blue Hills Regional Technical School in Canton, said that his wife found a humanitarian organization on Facebook called RVs 4 MDs. That group helps owners of RVs like the Deadys connect with first responders – usually medical personnel – who temporarily need a no-cost option for a safe, comfortable place to isolate themselves from their family members if they are infected with COVID-19, have been exposed to it, or are simply concerned about being near their spouses and children during this global health emergency.

When Vincent Burton was a student at Blue Hills Regional Technical School in Canton years ago, everyone could see that he was remarkable. Quiet and dignified, he excelled at his studies and as a football player, but this gentlemanly young man’s uniqueness did not end there.

He had obvious leadership potential, as well as an abundance of character and maturity that his teachers and peers respected. At 6’ 4” and 250 pounds, he was uncommonly impressive in stature and demeanor.

“I remember Vince as a student and I knew he was going to be a successful young man after high school,” said Blue Hills Regional Superintendent Jill Rossetti.  “He comes from a wonderful family and he is a role model and inspiration.”

Burton was going places fast – the only question was where he would be headed and what career he would choose.

On September 20, 2019, he officially became a police officer in Randolph, which is his hometown and the community where his parents, Vincent…

On March 21, Blue Hills Regional Technical School donated a significant quantity of personal protection equipment (PPE) and other vital supplies that were not being used while the school is not in session. Those items went to local hospitals and first responders who are on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some Blue Hills Regional employees are taking that same spirit of generosity and desire to help even further.

Guidance Counselor Sarah Titus, Lead Electronics Instructor Manuel Cerqueira and Electronics Instructor Jill Bearse each volunteered to work from their homes on their own time in conjunction with a grassroots, Canton-based group called Team Tara to produce as many face masks and face shields as possible for medical personnel, at-risk members of the public and institutions that need them as COVID-19 continues to severely impact Massachusetts.

Titus, Cerqueira and Bearse are working diligently on this outside of the time they spend supporting Blue…

Remote Learning Plan - Spring 2020

Dear Blue Hills Students, Families and Staff:

As you are aware, Governor Baker announced on March 25, that schools remain closed until May 4. This extended closure has prompted us to implement a longer term remote learning plan. This is pertinent to vocational and academic growth and development of Blue Hills students.

At Blue Hills, our first concern is always the health and safety of all our students and staff. Due to our 1:1 Chromebook implementation several years ago, we are very lucky to be in a good spot to smoothly transition to a remote delivery of learning and support. This document addresses expectations for how Blue Hills can best provide continuity of educational opportunities for our students during prolonged absences and/or school closure.

Our goal is to support student well-being and academic and CTE (Career Technical Education) progress, while fully understanding teaching and learning in this new remote education platform are not like anything…
