I hope you were able to enjoy the beautiful sunshine today! There continue to be signs that social distancing is having a positive impact. Keep it up! Here’s an article from Harvard with that intent: https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2020/04/social-distancing-measures-may-be-flattening-the-curve/
Concord Town Manager Stephen Crane shared reminders and updates yesterday that are found here on the Town of Concord web page: https://concordma.gov/2561/Coronavirus-2019-COVID19
At the bottom of this email is information about two upcoming online book groups for kids hosted by the Concord Free Public Library.
The amazing artwork and notes for first responders and Emerson Hospital continue to come in! I posted a number of them today to social media and will continue to share them in various formats. You can find them on my Twitter feed at: https://twitter.com/cps_cchs?ref_src=twsrc%5Egoogle%7Ctwcamp%5Eserp%7Ctwgr%5Eauthor
