As we always do during a crisis, we pull together to ensure the safety and health of our students, our schools, our communities, and each other. We have compiled resources to help answer your most pressing questions. In the days and weeks ahead, we will be updating this page with the latest guidance from your union staff, medical experts, education officials, and others. Please don't hesitate to contact your local leaders or us here at Vermont-NEA. We're all in this together -- and we'll get through it together.
