School Nurse Notes

Has your Student Received Two COVID-19 Shots?

If your student has received two COVID-19 vaccinations, please email me a copy of the vaccination card, so I may update their health record. Email to:



Call or email, to alert me of the completed vaccinations, so I can look up the dates on the Vermont Immunization ​Registry (however, not all COVID-19 vaccines are documented on the Registry).


Send in or mail a copy of the vaccination card.

Thank you and be well

SBSD ARP ESSER Community Engagement Survey

SBSD ARP ESSER Community Engagement Survey

In response to COVID-19 and its impact on student learning, the American Rescue Plan Act (ARP) was signed into law by the federal government in March of 2021 and provides funds to support the Elementary and Secondary School Relief Fund (ESSER). School districts across the State of Vermont have been asked by the Vermont Agency of Education to create Recovery Plans to outline how we will support our students using Federal ESSER funds.

For the third phase of funding, SBSD will be awarded $3,103,484. Federal guidance requires that all funds must be spent to address the ongoing impact of the pandemic specifically targeting three pillars: Social-Emotional Learning, Student Engagement, and Academic Success. We are seeking community input on how best to meet the needs of SBSD learners in these areas.

Please take a few minutes to provide us feedback on our proposed uses for these funds below. You can also read more about how we have spent recovery funds so far and review more detailed information on our Recovery Plan on our SBSD Recovery Planning/ESSER website:
