As many of you know we have been experiencing increasing numbers of Covid cases in the Upper Valley. We have been fortunate to be able to stay open through all of this and look forward to continuing to do so.
We are asking everyone to remember that wearing a mask properly in the building is imperative and a town mandate. Masks should only be lowered when students and staff are actively eating. Masks also need to cover both the nose and mouth at all times. The most common offense is masks being worn just below the nose.
We are also using a high number of disposable masks every day. We ask that families provide masks (disposable or reusable) daily. We will have masks on hand if there is a mask malfunction, but cannot provide 750 disposable masks a day for our students. If you are having trouble getting a mask please see the nurses.
In addition, please continue to practice safe social distancing when possible, proper hand washing, and keeping students home if they do not feel well.
We have options if we notice in school transmission. We could go back to eating lunch in cohorts, having meetings over zoom, daily study hall and limiting tables and seating in our common areas such as the Atrium.
The majority of our students have been doing an excellent job ensuring that we do not have in school transmission. We are in awe of their flexibility. They are to be applauded for sticking with the protocols.
Let's continue to keep our school community safe and mask up!
