Attention Senior Parents:

Parent Group:

PTSC would like to share that there is a group run by parents of seniors on Facebook called “Northern Burlington Class of 2021”. It is a private group but anyone is welcome to join, there are admins on the site to accept requests. This group is setting up fun activities for the senior class, for example, on Tuesday, April 6th Seniors will have the opportunity to join their Senior friends at Fireball Mountain in Wrightstown.  For those seniors who plan to attend a special code will be available so they can register themselves and receive the discount rate of $21.50 to play Outdoor Laser Tag.   More info on this to follow. 

 Click on this link to join the group or see what activities are coming up! 

Senior Cap & Gowns:

We have a few seniors who have not yet ordered their cap and gown.  We will be reaching out to them personally but if you know your student hasn’t ordered yet, please remind them to visit  Jostens.com  to place their order.

Senior Trip:

The Senior Trip is June 9 - June 12.  If NJ is still required to quarantine after traveling to Florida, the trip will be cancelled and the cost of the trip will be refunded. The travel company has extended our cancellation deadline to March 29th! At this time, we are all  hoping for the best.

Graduation:

Please be advised that graduation is still tentatively planned for June 17th.  Stay tuned for more specific details.

Message from the School Nurse: 

The NJDOH recommends no student should attend school with any COVID-19 like symptoms until they have either received a negative viral test (molecular or antigen) for SARS-CoV-2 or they have completed an isolation period of at least 10 days since symptom onset and at least 24 hours after resolution of fever without fever-reducing medications with symptom improvement. 

A Doctor's medical note without testing is no longer acceptable.

Please continue to share any COVID-19 cases or exposures with our school nurses. We ask that you directly contact your student’s nurse as this information is critical for monitoring community incidence & planning for safely keeping our school open.

High School East:  Mrs. Mary Crane - mcrane@nburlington.com   609-298-3900 x 2085

High School West:  Mrs. Gina Nocon - gnocon@nburlington.com   609-298-3900 x 2216

We will release any information about COVID-19 cases on Monday and Thursday as opposed to daily notifications. 

New medical guidelines have been issued at the local and nationwide levels recommending any person who has been Covid-19 Positive or presumed (suspected) Covid-19 Positive must be medically cleared after COVID-19 infection and before participation in sports, gym, or any school physical activity as there is a risk of post-Covid cardiac complications. Although vaccines are available for some of the population and infection rates have decreased we are still experiencing a moderate level of infection in our area. Please remain vigilant with social distancing and mask wearing. 

  Please contact the school nurses with any questions.

Travel Advisories: As we anticipate Spring Recess April 2 - April 6th, please remember we must still adhere to NJ Travel Quarantine Advisories:  If your student travels outside our immediate area (New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, & Delaware), the student will need to quarantine for 10 days upon date of return to NJ.

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 & school nurse  A link to travel advisories is included below:

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).
