Masks, Food Distribution/Online Donations, Social Distancing
March 22, 2020
Tonight, I offer several pieces of information and reminders.
There is a great video clip of burning matches that demonstrates the impact of social distancing if you scroll down this Newsweek article: https://www.newsweek.com/viral-match-burning-photo-showing-how-social-distancing-can-slow-coronavirus-spread-now-video-1492541
I also include an op-ed from the Presidents of Harvard, MIT and Stanford published in last week’s New York Times discussing why they closed their colleges: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/17/opinion/corona-harvard-stanford-mit.html
Today, we donated 400 masks to Emerson Hospital with the expectation we have more in the schools. They are happy to have people begin sewing fabric masks as well. Please use this information if you are interested in participating: https://twitter.com/cps_cchs/status/1241700895907352580
We posted all of the supplemental educational resources (with the correct links!) on the web page: https://www.concordps.org/virtual-school-activities/
Among the many options, there are many opportunities to visit museums, etc. virtually. My personal favorite is The Cincinnati Zoo’s Home Safari Facebook Live broadcast at 3 pm daily.
It has been our pleasure to provide food to those who need it during these difficult times. We continue to provide bagged breakfasts and lunches centrally for the community at our Concord-Carlisle High School for PICK-UP ONLY. This is in service to the community and open to anyone who is need during this closure from 8:30-11 a.m. each weekday morning We are not able to accept food donations but fiscal donations are welcome. An electronic link is now available on the food service web site at: https://www.concordps.org/food-and-nutrition-services/. Please answer this survey so we know how many meals to prepare. We can deliver on a limited basis. Please note, this survey is ANONYMOUS.
Please enjoy the cold (a little snow tomorrow!) but bright evening!
