Return to In-Person Instruction Jan. 25 – A message from Dr. Long and Mrs. Cannavo

Dear Parents & Families,

I would first like to thank you for your patience and cooperation during this period of remote learning. We will return to in-person instruction on Monday, Jan. 25.  

During the past two weeks, our custodial staff has been working hard to clean and sanitize the entire building. The district has taken the extra step of utilizing a disinfection service that will be performed quarterly. The first application is scheduled for tomorrow.

As a reminder, all students, staff and visitors must complete a daily health attestation.  We ask that you do so by 7:30 a.m. each day. In the event your child is symptomatic, they should not report to school. Families should contact our school nurse, Ms. D’Ambro, and follow her guidance and direction. 

Please remember that the best plan for addressing the COVID-19 virus is to remain informed and follow these steps to help contain the spread of the virus:

  • Keep at least a 6-foot distance between you and others when out in the community — even if you don’t feel sick or have any symptoms
  • Wear a snug-fitting surgical or cloth face mask that covers your nose and mouth
  • Stay home when you are sick
  • Call your healthcare provider in advance of a visit
  • Limit social gatherings

It is our plan to begin COVID-19 surveillance testing in the near future. If you have not done so, please be sure to submit a testing consent form for each child as soon as possible.

We will continue to work closely with our local health departments and communicate any necessary updates. Please reach out to one of us if you have any questions or would like more information about health and safety procedures.

Dr. Maureen A. Long

Mrs. Jennifer Cannavo
