NYH: Let's All Be Safe in the NYH Family

Dear NYH families:

As some of you may be aware, there was apparently a large gathering of high-school-aged kids on Friday this past weekend in the Dover-Sherborn area. We have no way of knowing if there may have been any members of any NYH team present at the party, although we have heard, anecdotally, that there were a few kids from Needham at the party.

First, let me say plainly that our primary, in fact our only, concern is with the health and safety of our kids and families.

Second, we reached out to the Needham Board of Health and, as of this morning, they had not been made aware of any positive cases in Needham, or Dover/Sherborn related to last weekend’s gathering.

And again, we do not know whether any of our players were present and this email is not intended to point fingers.

All that said, we take the potential risk very seriously. And the risk reaches beyond individual families. If an NYH kid is exposed, that poses a risk for other players, coaches, refs, rink personnel (and all of their families) with whom they might come in contact.

Frankly, we are all in unchartered territory here.  On a fundamental level, this is a personal, family issue. But when it potentially affects others, we are all a family in Needham and at NYH.  We urge all of our families to take whatever steps they deem prudent to insure the safety of not only their kids, but everyone involved in a group activity like youth sports.

I am available to discuss with each and all of you.

Thanks, Lee
