The Vermilion Local Schools Superintendent, Philip Pempin, has issued the following statement to parents and guardians regarding the Coronavirus:
We are closely monitoring the news and CDC reports regarding the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). In determining the appropriate response to this situation, the Vermilion Local School District will rely on the guidance and recommendations provided by the National Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Ohio Department of Health, and the Erie/Lorain County Health Departments.
You can help with prevention efforts by following the recommendations below from the CDC. These guidelines are similar to the best practices we encourage everyone to follow during flu season:
The Vermilion Schools will follow all recommendations from the CDC regarding the cleaning of school facilities and equipment frequently touched by students and staff. Our staff will continue to encourage students to wash hands often.
We are in process of procuring extra hand sanitation dispensers and disinfecting wipes which will be made available in classrooms and in our cafeterias. If a confirmed case of COVID-19 virus is reported in our area, we will take direction from the CDC, the Ohio Department of Health and Erie County Board of Health regarding potential school closings.
