Cavanaugh tells Boston 25 her district got roughly $900,000 in CARES Act, or Coronavirus Relief, money and they have already spent over $100,000 of it on personal protection equipment (PPE) alone. Each of the district’s 4,000 students will receive their own face shields on the first day of class.

She also says her district did not skimp on sanitization and disinfection. The purchase of several electrostatic sprayers will help ensure every corner and crevice in every room in the district’s five school building get thoroughly cleaned.
