We are in this Together
The closing of school can be scary and alarming.  We want you to know that we are in this together. By working together, we can reduce the worry that surrounds the virus.  Together is better.  We will do everything we can to provide you with care and support even outside the typical school environment.

Please check the "useful links" page to find resources that may be helpful during this difficult time.

Please follow "prevention practices."

The Virginia Department of Health recommends that everyone
follow these COVID-19 prevention practices:

    • Avoid contact with sick people.
    • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands.
    • Clean your hands often by washing them with soap and water for at least 20 seconds or using an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains 60% – 95% alcohol. Soap and water should be used if hands are visibly dirty.
    • It is especially important to clean hands after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after coughing, sneezing or blowing your nose.
    • If you are sick, stay home and rest, even if illness is mild.
    • Practice social distancing
    • Avoid in-person gatherings of 10 or more people
    • Those 65 years of age and older are encouraged to self-quarantine
        • People are also encouraged to practice social distancing. Social distancing means remaining out of:

          • Public places where close contact with others may occur (such as shopping centers, movie theaters, stadiums).
          • Workplaces (unless the person works in an office space that allows distancing from others).
          • Schools and other classroom settings.
          • Local public transportation (such as on a bus, subway, taxi, ride share, plane, ship)
            • It is very important that people with even mild signs of illness
              (fever, cough, shortness of breath) stay home to prevent spreading illness to others. Even those with mild illness could pass the infection to others.

              As always, if you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at the school 540-853-2756.
