RAYMOND — Superintendent Tina McCoy is pleased to report that several Raymond School District administrators have taken the “Save a Life Pledge” by showing their commitment to reducing the spread of COVID-19.
The “Save a Life” initiative was first started by Raymond Town Manager Joseph S. Ilsley. Over the past several weeks many people in the town have taken the pledge, including town officials, business owners and residents, as well as members of the Raymond School Board earlier this month.
The ten Raymond school administrators who took the pledge each took turns in pledging the following:
- We pledge to save a life by following social distance guidance in our school district.
- We pledge to save a life by creating 6-foot distancing markers for anywhere lines will 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 to follow personal hygiene requirements.
- We pledge to save a life by heavily sanitizing all high-touched 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 help stop the spread.
- We pledge to save a life by being the solution and not the problem.
“I applaud our administrators who pledged to help reduce the spread of COVID-19,” said Superintendent McCoy, who herself took the pledge earlier this month. “We must remain vigilant with aggressive social distancing and proper hygiene habits, and all work together in our fight against the virus.”
