Today's mask announcement
The CDC and President Biden made a big announcement about masks and vaccinated adults today.
Gordon has not, however, received updated guidance from the Rhode Island Department of Health about schools. Schools have a mix of adults and children, vaccinated and unvaccinated, together for extended periods, and require their own set of guidelines.
Anyone who comes on Gordon’s campus, adult or child, vaccinated or unvaccinated, must continue to wear a mask.
Nurse Horton and Mr. Burnstein have been delighted to hear that so many students have their first shots.
Appointments for ages twelve and up are fast, free and easy at vaccinateRI.org.
Wheeler is hosting clinics in Providence for students from independent schools, Wednesday, May 19th and Wednesday, June 9th from 3:30 to 6:30pm.
Gordon will host a clinic Friday, June 4th from 2 to 3pm. The goal of this is to provide second shots for students who got their first shots this week, but all Gordon students twelve and up—first shot or second shot—are welcome.
Registration is required for all of these clinics and we will email the link to sixth, seventh and eighth grade parents when the links are available.
