Dear North Smithfield Families and Staff,
With the rapidly unfolding news and concerns about the spread of the Coronavirus, I wanted to follow up on my messages from the previous weeks with some additional information:
Below are reminders and requests from our Nurses (who have been absolutely wonderful with their attention, knowledge, and communications with our staff, students, and families):
We remind everyone to take the same measures that healthcare providers recommend to prevent the spread of flu and other similar viruses:
Rhode Island Department of Health COVID-19
CDC Talking to Children about COVID-19: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/community/schools-childcare/talking-with-children.html
We will continue to share information and practices with the North Smithfield school community as we work together to ensure that our students, families, and staff remain healthy and safe.
Michael St. Jean,
