3/20/2020 Update on COVID-19
from Superintendent Cabral:
Dear EPS community,
First and foremost, THANK YOU!! Your patience and understanding through this challenging time are greatly appreciated.
We are working closely and daily with the Easton Board of Health, DESE, the Department of Public Health, the Governor's Office, and the Town Leadership Team (includes Town Administrator, Police, Fire, DPW, etc.) and other organizations to organize and then share as much information as possible with you and with all of our families in Easton.
Our primary mission this week was to provide for the basic essentials for all students: medication distribution, food security, appropriate child care, checking on outplaced students, etc. I have prepared the FAQ sheet included. We are hoping it provides answers to your most pressing questions at this time. Unfortunately, we are unable to answer the biggest question of all: How long will this last? Please know that as soon as we have a grasp of that, we will let you know. Obviously, that part is out of our control.
I understand that some of you have asked about direct, online instruction to students. This is currently NOT in line with the Commissioner of Education's guidance. However, we are watching these developments closely and will provide further guidance when it becomes available to us. Further information regarding this and what other districts might be doing, as well as many other common questions received are addressed in the FAQ document below.
The district website, after Monday, will include all of our resources in one spot, including my previous newsletter, this FAQ, and many other resources, and it will be updated regularly after that.
We look forward to seeing you and your children again. In the meantime, please stay safe and take good care of yourself and those around you.
Thank you for your continued support of the Easton Public Schools.
Superintendent Lisha Cabral
