  • Washing hands 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. Please refer to this chart from the VDH regarding when to keep your child home, when to reach out to a provider, and when your child can return to school: VDH COVID-19 Information for Families: Return to School Following Illness

    Please ensure your child is sent to school with a properly fitting mask. It is a good idea to send your child to school with extra masks for times when masks become wet or dirty, such as after recess. Please go over the importance of social distancing, hand washing, wearing a mask, and proper mask wearing with your child at home. Check out these helpful resources on how to educate your child on COVID-19 and how to help them stay safe and wear masks appropriately:
