Corona Virus (COVID 19) Preparations
The Windsor Health Department has been active in staying informed and preparing for the possibility of a Corona Virus (COVID 19) pandemic. Each week staff members have been on calls with the Center for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Public Health (DPH) where updates are shared, information discussed and resources distributed. Participation on these calls will continue. Inventory of supplies was completed in February of 2020.
Communication between the Health Department staff, Town of Windsor staff, Windsor Public School staff, Windsor private school staff and Windsor residents is ongoing. Both the Health Director and Public Health Nurse are available to share information with Windsor businesses. In addition, the town’s website includes information on COVID 19 and CDC and WHO links are listed to keep Windsor residents informed.
WHS NASA Hunch program inventions to be used on International Space Station
I’d like to extend my congratulations to the former students from Windsor High School’s career and technical education program were recently honored for their design work on a tape dispenser and seat track attachment that will be used on the International Space Station. I’d also like to recognize Mr. Dustin Ricci for his leadership in this effort.
The project came about through a partnership between the high school and NASA Hunch program, which partners with schools across the country to design real hardware intended for use in space. Windsor’s name is listed on the technical drawing of the design, the first time such a distinction has been made for a high school in the program.
