RAYMOND — Superintendent Tina McCoy is pleased to report that several members of the Raymond School Board have taken the “Save a Life Pledge” by showing their commitment to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
An initiative that was first started by Town Manager Joseph S. Ilsley, many people in the Town of Raymond, N.H. have been taking the pledge in recent weeks, including town officials, business owners and residents.
A modified version of the pledge was taken by School Board members Janice Arsenault, Anthony Clements, Melissa Sytek and Beth Paris, as well as Superintendent McCoy.
Members of the Board were challenged to take the pledge by Chair Joseph Saulnier, who had already taken the pledge himself.
The Raymond School District “Save a Life Pledge” includes the following statements:
- We pledge to save a life ensuring social distancing guidance is followed in our school district.
- We pledge to save a life by creating 6-foot distancing markers for anywhere lines form.
- We pledge to save a life by ensuring barriers where 6-foot distancing is not possible.
- We pledge to save a life by requiring employees following personal hygiene guidelines.
- We pledge to save a life by aggressively sanitizing commonly touched items and areas.
- We pledge to save a life by ensuring our employees self-quarantine if they may be exposed or sick
- We pledge to save a life by being innovative and developing strategies to reduce exposure.
- We pledge to save a life by providing alternatives for sick constituents rather than coming in.
- We pledge to save a life by partnering with community leaders to stop the spread.
