We are now in our 2nd quarter of full in school learning! This success only happens with all of us working together, putting our own and others health and safety at the top of our priorities. We have striven to adhere to the NH State Guidelines and we appreciate the understanding and encouragement we have sensed from parents/guardians and staff.
As a reminder, the COVID health agreement that was signed by each of you prior to your child coming to school includes the following:
*I agree to take my child’s temperature every morning and will not send him/her to school if the temperature reading is 100 degrees or more. I will not medicate with any fever reducing medication and send him/her to school.
*I agree to assess my child every morning for the most common symptoms of COVID-19. Symptoms can be mild.
Fever or chills (100 degrees or more)
Cough (not due to other known causes, such as chronic cough or asthma)
Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
Fatigue (not due to other known cause)
Muscle or body aches
Headache (not due to other known causes)
New loss of taste or smell
Congestion or runny nose (not due to other known causes)
Nausea or vomiting
IF NO SYMPTOMS: Send your child to school.
IF IT IS ANY NEW SYMPTOM (does NOT have to include a fever), OR WORSENING SYMPTOM FROM A KNOWN HEALTH CONDITION- DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILD TO SCHOOL, and call the CBNA office at 942-5531 by 8am and email Laurie Foster, RN (firstname.lastname@example.org) of the reason of your child’s absence. Please see attached protocol for “Student is symptomatic at home”. Testing options can be found at https://www.dhhs.nh.gov/dphs/cdcs/covid19/documents/covid-testing-options.pdf
* I will NOT send my child to school if he/she has travelled outside of New England (NH, VT, ME, MA, CT, RI) in the past 14 days. This includes any mode of transportation. If you go outside of these states, you need to quarantine.
We ask that you contact us if you are planning a necessary or emergent travel outside of New England so we can determine the date that your child can return to in-school learning per the NH Department of Health protocol that we follow.
Thank you again for working together with us during these ever-changing times,
Laurie Foster, RN, BSN and Cindy Noyes, RN (942-5531 ext. 112)
