With so many closings and the Governor’s “stay home, stay safe” order, Green Up Vermont is unable to distribute Green Up Day supplies until the first week in May. Town coordinators will be communicating how people can pick up bags safely with social distance, along with plans for trash collection on May 30.

With Covid-19 and the precarious health situations in our world today, please use logical precautions and stay informed on what the Vermont Dept. of Health is recommending. Visit http://www.greenupvermont.org for information on safety, ways to communicate, and other fun information. Thank you to all who get out and Green Up to keep our state looking beautiful as we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Green Up Day.

An easy way to support Green Up Vermont is on line 23 of your Vermont Tax Form.

Dear Parents and Community Members

At RNESU, as distance learning continues, we are working hard to find ways to support our school community. We would like to ask for your input as we continue to make plans in response to COVID-19. Your voice will help us refine our plans to meet the needs in our community

To collect your input we are using a tool called Thoughtexchange. This tool asks you to answer one open ended question with as many responses as you like. Then you move on to the next step, called Star. In this step, you will see and rate the thoughts of others, assigning stars to each thought (from 1-5) depending on how strongly you agree or disagree with the idea, or how it resonates with you.

I am asking you for five minutes today and another five minutes tomorrow to help us plan our continued response to COVID-19 and how we can continue to support each other. You are welcome to log back on before the end of the survey to continue to rate new thoughts as they come in, if you would like.

Use this URL to participate https://my.thoughtexchange.com/423237708

The survey will remain open until April 24.

Thank you in advance for participating in this conversation.

Everyday Preventive Measures

Person-to-person spread of the virus is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes. Much is still unknown about how the virus spreads. Take these everyday preventive actions to help stop the spread of germs:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not available, use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • Stay home when you are sick.
  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.
  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces.
