ESSC & Middle School Thursday Ski Days

We would like to remind parents and guardians of a few things:

Skis are to be dropped off here at the school, in the trailer in the shed, before 7am on Thursday’s or dropped off at Attitash Mountain, either in the trailer or along the fence by the Children’s Lodge before 12pm.

Make sure students are prepared to be outside for the afternoon. Pack extra gloves, socks, snacks, etc.

When picking your child up at the mountain they need to be picked up BEFORE 3:15pm. When picking up your student, DO NOT block the entrance by the newly installed Handicapped signs.

Pull ahead to one of the open parking spots to the left of the Children’s Lodge.

If your child is taking their regular bus home they will be arriving at their stop earlier than usual. Please plan about 10 minutes earlier.

Once your child has been dismissed to a parent or guardian, school staff and volunteers are no longer responsible for them.


Nurses Corner

There are currently many different illnesses circulating through our school (Influenza, Gastrointestinal (stomach) virus, COVID-19, Fevers, and Cough). Please keep your child home if they are sick. NH DHHS recommends staying home for 48 hours after the last episode of vomiting or diarrhea. School Policy is to stay home with vomiting and fever, and not to return until fever-free for 24 hours (without medication). When keeping someone home, please let the main office know for attendance purposes, and let the nurse know so she can keep track of illnesses occurring in school, and be able to keep everyone updated. Masks are available in the front office and nurse’s office. Consider wearing one when not feeling well, or for a few days after an illness to help reduce the spread. Also, practice good hand washing at home and school (wash for at least 20 seconds-sing Happy Birthday X2). If you have any questions about any illness please call or email the nurse, [email protected].
