Coronavirus Update - VDH Guidance

A Memo From Superintendent Tracy Wrend

I want to extend my deepest thanks to all members of the LSUU community for your cooperation and support as we transition into distance learning.  It is exciting to watch the transformation and growth as all engage with new tools for learning.  We will continue to work to revise and refine our practices and look forward to learning and growing with you.  

As you settle into new routines, we will continue to share information and resources to support you. On Monday, March 23, 2020, the first verified case was reported in Lamoille County.  As of now, we are not aware of cases in our Lamoille South community, but we can expect arrival here soon. We are prepared and together we can support our students, families, faculty, staff, and communities as new developments emerge.  

Guidance from the Vermont Department of Health (VDH) has been updated:  

You should call:

  • If you have questions about COVID-19: Dial 2-1-1. If you have trouble reaching 2-1-1, dial 1-866-652-4636.
  • If you are returning from Europe, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Malaysia, China, Iran or South Korea, or from a cruise: call the Health Department Epidemiology at 802-863-7240.
  • If you are sick or concerned about your health: contact your health care provider by phone. Not everybody needs to be tested. Do not call the Health Department. Do not go to the hospital, except in a life-threatening situation.

UP-TO-DATE information about COVID-19 can be found via the following links:

For Mental Health and Emergency Crisis Support, contact Lamoille County Mental Health Hotline at 802-888-5026 (Monday - Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM) or 802-888-8888 (nights and weekends).

FEMA has recently posted a resource on Coronavirus Rumor Control, which provides factual information and tips to avoid being misled by misinformation.

Here are some useful resources from the Centers for Disease Control:

In a previous update, I provided an incorrect contact number for MASP/Clubhouse Kids.  You can reach them at 802-888-5439 for more information and to register your child for care.

Best,
Tracy
