April 2 COVID-19 update: EH sends messages of appreciation to essential workers

As schools across New York state continue to be closed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, it’s important that members of the Fayetteville-Manlius School District feel connected to each other and the greater community.

At Eagle Hill Middle School, students and staff recently created positive messages that were shared electronically with local emergency responders, grocery store workers and medical providers. As COVID-19 afflicts more people in our community, the students and staff wanted these essential workers to know that the work they are doing is appreciated.

Here are some of their messages that were sent to local hospitals:

  • Thanks for being a LIGHT in these uncertain times! Your hard work is appreciated more than you know!
  • I value and appreciate your time, energy and dedication. Thank you for everything you do!!
  • Thank you for all that you do. I am glad that you have the courage to work because everyone needs you. You do a dangerous job but you aren’t scared to help our community.
  • Thank you for your service by helping us get better when we get sick. You make a big difference in the world.

Continued communications

The district will continue to update the community via the district website with any new information and frequently asked questions.

Any time-sensitive, critical information will be shared via the district’s SchoolMessenger notification system, which sends email, text message and phone call notifications, depending upon how parents subscribed to the system.
