Starting with the positive

Email from a local public school teacher:
Dear amazing Health care staff and team,
Some of the students at Paisley Road P.S. (age 9-11) wanted to send a message of thanks to health care workers. Here is a slideshow of their messages for you.
Enjoy hearing their messages from the heart.
With sincere thanks for everything you do everyday and as you help us through this global emergency.

Just one example of the messages of support from the students.

What’s new?

Save the empty Oxivir canisters!
These wipes are in extremely short supply and we’re exploring a way to safely refill these dispensers. For now, please give all empty ones to housekeeping (much like we’re doing with the hand sanitizer bottles).
