“Amity Regional High School is currently in a Shelter-in-Place status. This means the exterior of the school building is locked down and no one can enter the building. Students will only be dismissed to a parent/guardian who must present ID at the front security. Students will move within the building between classes and lunch. Local police are on site and continuing the investigation. At this time, students should not be exiting the building on their own. Thank you for your cooperation and support while we continue the investigation.”

Amity hosted Stamford for a Friday night varsity Football game on Sept. 24.

Within the first four minutes the Spartans scored a touchdown and played well throughout the first quarter.
Score at the end of one Amity 7 – Stamford 0
In the second quarter, with 7:25 left on the clock, Amity successfully kicked a field goal and boosted the score up to 10-0.
Amity’s Nicholas Young (14) ran the ball to the 11 yard line. Everyone was optimistic until Stamford intercepted the ball with 5:05 left before the half.
At halftime Amity held on to its lead.
Score after two Amity 10 – Stamford 0. 
 
Back on the field for the third quarter, there was a bit of back and forth, then, with 10 minutes on the clock and Stamford in possession at the 4 yard line, the Black Knights made a touchdown and got on the scoreboard. The kick was not good.
Score Amity 10 – Stamford 6.
Stamford kicked the ball and Amity got it, making a 70 yard return for a touchdown! The kick was good, bringing the score to Amity 17 – Stamford 6.
The Spartans are passing more in this game than they did last Friday, when we saw mostly running plays.
With 1:35 left in the quarter Amity scored another touchdown and had another good kick for the extra point, bringing the score to Amity 24 – Stamford 6.
I don’t know what kind of Lou Holtz locker room speech coach Bruno gave the Spartans today, but the team had a strong confident, winning spirit out on the field this evening.
The final quarter started off strong with Amity scoring yet another touchdown early on, adding another 6 points to their already impressive lead. YES, 30 – 6, that’s how it’s done, Amity!
AND with 6:50 remaining in the game, Amity Scores AGAIN! 36-6, Amity
With 3:09 Left, Stamford made its second goal of the night bringing the score to 36-12. 
Then with only 16 seconds remaining, Stamford came through again, making it 36-18.
Another Win For the Amity Spartans 36-18.  Excellent Job gentlemen, and  Congratulations Coach Bruno.

From The Amity Supt.: Amity To Host COVID Vaccine Clinic

 Amity High School, Around Town, Home, Latest News, School News  Comments Off on From The Amity Supt.: Amity To Host COVID Vaccine Clinic
Sep 202021
 

Amity Regional School District will be hosting a COVID vaccine clinic at Amity Regional High School. This clinic will be open to all students and staff. Students ages 12 and up may participate in this clinic, as it is Pfizer vaccination clinic.

Amity Regional High School, District Presentation Room

8:00 am – 4:30 pm

First Dose – September 23, 2021

Second Dose – October 14, 2021

COVID vaccines are a mitigation strategy to make sure that our school community is protected from COVID and that our students and staff are able to have a smooth and uninterrupted school year.

Asymptomatic students who are vaccinated and identified as close contacts do not have to quarantine and can continue their in-person learning and in-person extracurricular and co-curricular activities.

We hope families who have not yet had their student vaccinated take this opportunity to access a COVID vaccine. For an overview of COVID vaccines for children, including information about the Pfizer vaccine product, click here.

To read an interview about COVID 19 vaccines with a Connecticut-based pediatrician who is also the President-Elect for the Connecticut chapter of the American Academy of Pediatrics, click here. In addition, we encourage families to consult with their pediatricians.

All students and staff who want to get vaccinated at Amity’s clinic on September 23rd and October 14th are welcome to do so. This is a walk-in clinic for students and staff – no appointment is necessary.

  • Students ages 12-17 do NOT need a parent/guardian present, but must present a fully completed and signed consent form prior to receiving a vaccination.
  • Parents/guardians can attend the appointment with a 12-17 year old student and complete the consent form at that time.
  • Students ages 18 and older can complete their own consent form.
    Thank you for everything you are doing to keep yourselves, your students, and your community safe. Sincerely,

    Amity Superintendent Jenn Byars
