Dear Everitt Families:

Happy Halloween to those of you who celebrate it!

This week has been full of fun at Everitt! We had our first choir, band, ukulele, and orchestra concerts. Our students made lovely music both Tuesday and Thursday evenings. It was so wonderful to see them creating something beautiful together. We are so lucky to have Mr. Snyder, Ms. Letendre, and Ms. Reardon at Everitt to guide our musicians and vocalists! See below for some photos of the concerts.

We held our first Fall Festival tonight. We think it will probably be our first annual. It was a hit! Our Sources of Strength students planned fun games, booths, and costume competitions for the whole family. Everyone had a wonderful time! We are so proud of our Sources students!

I hope your weekends are full of fun with your families! Thank you for supporting and believing in your neighborhood school. It is our privilege to partner with you!


Amanda Pouliot, Interim Principal

From Our Nurse: At Home Screening for COVID-19

Any student diagnosed with COVID-19 or who is a close contact of a COVID-19 case should not go to school and should isolate or quarantine according to public health recommendations regardless of current symptoms.

This symptom screen refers only to new symptoms or a change in usual symptoms. A student should not be kept home for usual symptoms they experience due to a chronic condition unless they are worse than usual. These guidelines are in addition to your regular school guidance (for example, a child with vomiting should also not attend school based on school guidance).

If your child is experiencing any potentially life-threatening symptoms, please call 911.

Symptom Screen:

If any of the following symptoms are present, keep the child at home, inform the school of symptoms, and reach out to a health care provider about COVID-19 testing and next steps for treatment.

  • feeling feverish, having chills, or temperature 100.4 degrees or higher
  • new or unexplained persistent cough
  • shortness of breath
  • difficulty breathing
  • loss of taste or smell
  • fatigue
  • muscle aches
  • headache
  • sore throat
  • nausea or vomiting
  • diarrhea
  • runny nose or congestion
