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. 

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: Please remember we must still adhere to NJ Travel Quarantine Advisories. The announcement on 5/17/21, by Gov. Murphy, pertains to vaccinated individuals. Vaccinated travelers do not need to quarantine, but must submit a copy of the covid-19 vaccine card and monitor symptoms for 14 days after return. If your student travels outside our immediate area :New York, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, & Delaware and they are unvaccinated, they must quarantine prior to returning to school. 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:

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).
