GRCSU parents – During today’s press briefing Governor Scott and Secretary French announced that on March 14, the state will be dropping most school specific mitigation efforts (including masking). As the GRCSU has done since the beginning of this pandemic, we have closely adhered to the guidance and recommendations of the AOE and VDOH. In keeping with this approach, all GRCSU schools will be mask optional on March 14. We will share more details as we receive additional information from the AOE. If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. Thanks –
First on behalf of the Greater Rutland County Supervisory Union and our local district (Ira, Quarry Valley, Rutland Town, and Wells Springs) board members, we would like to thank our community members for their continued support of our GRCSUschools by voting “yes” on our school budget. We greatly appreciate the support and assistance of our school communities.
Secondly, as some of you may know by now, during today’s press briefing Governor Scott and Secretary French made that announcement that the state will do away with most of the school specific mitigation measures in our schools. This includes requiring all students and staff members to wear masks indoors.
From the onset, the GRCSU has closely aligned its school-based mitigation measures with the guidance and recommendations of the AOE and Vermont Department of Health. As a result, all GRCSU schools will be mask optional as of March 14. We will share any additional information as we receive it. Thank you and have a good evening.
Christopher Sell, Superintendent
