Travel Advisories: 

Will your student leave the tri-state area over the break?  

During the holiday season, the CDC and Governor Murphy have encouraged us all to limit travel whenever possible and to keep celebrations to immediate family members.  However, in the event your family is traveling outside of the immediate region (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, and Delaware), please plan to have your student quarantine for 10 days.   Students are able to attend all of their classes virtually during that time, even if they are in the hybrid model.  In the event your child will be quarantining and attending school virtually during that time, please notify your child’s counselor. Please do not hesitate to contact our school nurse with any questions regarding the quarantine process.  A link to  travel advisories is included below:

NJ Travel Quarantine Information.


Health and Safety Reminder:

COVID-When to get tested 

COVID Cannot test out of Quarantine   

COVID-How-Long-Isolate-Quarantine

It is important to emphasize a few points with regard to health safety.  Most importantly, students should not come to school if they are sick.  The remote option is available on a day to day basis if a student has any symptoms on the day he or she is supposed to attend school in person but can still attend school at home.  If you have any medical questions, please contact our school nurse at extension 2216(west office) or 2085(east office). Covid Informational Flyers.

Calendar for Second Marking Period:  

The calendar for the second marking period can be found at this link.  Please note the remote days after the Winter Break.  

Clinical Corner Spotlight:

A Compassionate Guide to Anxiety During the COVID-19 Pandemic Part 1: Understanding Why We Are So Anxious Right Now by Eric Goodman, PhD - Life in the time of a pandemic is difficult.  The fact that we are feeling more anxious these days didn’t start with COVID-19. Our anxiety levels were rising well before this virus made itself known. The pandemic, however, has brought to the surface heightened anxiety that for many has been simmering underneath for quite some time.  But is our anxiety really out to get us?  Please click this link to access the full article: 

Picture Day Make-ups:

February 23rd and 26th will be the makeup days for pictures.  Students who are participating in hybrid instruction will take their picture on the day their cohort is present, all remote students can come between the hours of 12:30-4pm on either day.  The photographer will be set up in the media center conference room. 

We are also planning to offer a link for parents to upload a picture of their student for us to use in the yearbook, if you are uncomfortable with coming in for pictures.  We are waiting for our yearbook company to make the link available to us.

Ordering School Lunch for Students:

Please note that Lunches are FREE FOR ALL STUDENTS.

 Students learning remotely: 

Students who are receiving instruction remotely, or their parents/guardians, may pick up meals (three to five meals at one time) for those days they are receiving remote instruction. Ordering ahead of time is required:

As with the Spring 2020 meal distribution, the pick-up location is near the Middle School’s rear entrance (Middle School Door C-3 that leads into the teachers’ lounge) via the Island Road entrance and taking the 1st left to go toward the back of the school. NB has established MONDAY and TUESDAY for pick up of meals. Meals may be picked up between the hours of 10:00 AM and 11:15 AM. For social distancing purposes, NB will limit the number of people entering the middle school facility at one time.

*We ask that you complete the Google Document for Remote Learning Students to sign up for these meals for pick up on Monday -Thursday.  

 Students present in the building:

When students are present in school, they will have the option to pre-order a grab and go lunch. Students or parents  will use the google form to order lunch selection by 8 AM for that day's pick up. 


NHS TUTORING:

Is your child in need of some extra help?  NHS tutoring is here to assist!  Virtual tutoring will take place every Tuesday and Thursday from 1:30-2pm.  All you need to do is have the student who in need of help email the NHS adviser at jnewman@nburlington.com and then the student will receive a link to the virtual tutoring session.
