COVID-19 and Our Schools
Your EWSD nurses are here to support the health and wellness of our entire school community. We are all aware of the prolonged flu season and the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The District continues to follow preventative and response guidelines offered by the Vermont Department of Health (VDH) and Vermont Agency of Education (AOE).
Your building nurse is available for any questions or concerns you may have regarding any illness or symptoms.
For District updates related to COVID-19, and helpful tips on staying healthy, please visit our EWSD page on the novel coronavirus. (Opens in a new window.)
Healthy Children, Healthy School
When to Stay Home
As the ADL community, we are all responsible for the health and safety of our students. Please reference the following list of symptoms that will help determine whether your child needs to be kept out of school:
- Fever, over 100 degrees, currently or within previous 24 hours
- Diarrhea or vomiting, currently or within the previous 24 hours
- Persistent sore throat with fever or enlarged tonsils/glands
- Undetermined rash
- Red, itchy eyes with drainage
Please do not send your child back to school until they've been symptom-free for at least 24 hours.
Adhering to these guidelines will help to keep our students and staff members healthy throughout the school year!
All students are required to have an up-to-date immunization record or a signed exemption form (required annually) for school entry.
Students are encouraged to have a physical with their pediatrician and a check up with their dentist every year.
Students who would like to participate in sports activities are required to have a sports physical every two years.
