Spring Break and Student Return:
Spring break is not as long as it typically would be, but it is a welcome respite just the same. Enjoy the time with family and friends. As you saw from the letter from the superintendent, as a result of growing COVID numbers we will be remote through the week of April 12. Students are scheduled to return in person on April 19.
April 19 is the beginning of the fourth marking period. Recently, parents completed a survey about their intentions for the fourth marking period and that survey closed on March 25. For those families that indicated their child would be attending in person, we will combine all of our in person cohorts and those students will attend school in person, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday.
We are excited about the return of all of our in person students, four days a week when they resume in person instruction on April 19. To ensure that this goes smoothly and we make the transition successfully, we remind all families that it is important to abide by the CDC guidelines to reduce the spread of COVID-19. If we all do our part, we can move to this next step successfully.
We look forward to moving to this next phase in reopening our schools.

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 - firstname.lastname@example.org 609-298-3900 x 2085
High School West: Mrs. Gina Nocon - email@example.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:
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.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org and then the student will receive a link to the virtual tutoring session.
