Notes from Nurse Wagner
There are many students in school with food allergies. Please remember we are a NUT-FREE school. Also, please remind your child that they should NOT share ANY snacks with other students during classroom snack time.
RPS COVID guidelines remain the same as last year. Please stay diligent about monitoring for symptoms in your child. If your child has symptoms, please test them with a rapid COVID test. Free COVID test kits are available from the Town of Rockport. Reach out to the Board of Selectmen's Office at Town Hall during their business hours. You can review the guidance here.
Please remember to turn in a copy of your child's latest physical and immunization history.
Please make sure your child brings a water bottle to school every day.
For any questions or to report your child's illness, please call the RES health office at 978-546-1223 or email email@example.com .

Public Survey on Accessibility of Town Facilities, Programs, and Services
We need your help! The Town of Rockport is in the process of developing a Self-Evaluation and
Transition Plan to ensure residents and visitors have access to all Town buildings, programs, and
services. The Town has engaged the Edward J. Collins Center for Public Management to assist with the plan, which is required by the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1991 (ADA). An important part of this planning process is providing opportunities for the public to offer input and voice concerns.
This survey is intended to gather preliminary data to assist the planning team in identifying any barriers to access for individuals with disabilities at Town buildings or within the programs and services it currently offers. Once the initial study is completed, the Town will solicit additional input on how to best address any deficiencies that are found.
Please take a few minutes to complete this important accessibility survey at the following link:
If you need assistance in completing this survey or would like to request an alternative format, please contact Marcia Birmingham at firstname.lastname@example.org or call the Collins Center at 617-287-4824. We sincerely appreciate your time and effort in helping to ensure Rockport remains a great place to live for ALL our residents.
