WISHING YOU ONGOING HEALTH
START OF SCHOOL INFORMATION
As we embark on the 2021-2022 school year, we wish to thank you for your ongoing support dthroughout the COVID-19 Pandemic. District personnel have continued to work diligently to develop workable plans and protocols to help ensure the healthiest and safest school environment possible during this school year.
The school district is required to follow specific directives from the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) and we make every effort to remain up to date and compliant with any changes in the directives.
I am empathetic to any concern you may have related to your child in this setting and will assist you in any way that I can.
Please be sure to communicate with me related to any health concerns for your child. You can feel free to contact me via phone or e-mail.
It is extremely important that your contact information in power school is current and up to date. . Please review and update your information in power school as soon as possible.
If your child requires medication during school hours, please contact me and I will assist you to acquire the necessary forms which need to be completed annually by your licensed medical provider and yourself. The forms are available on the District Nurse Web Page. Due to state regulations, no medications can be administered in school without an order from a licensed medical provider. Please do not send medications to school without an accompanying medical order.
You are the frontline in knowing your child. If your child appears sick, please keep your child home and contact the school nurse and your child's teacher.
As directed by NJ Department of Health, it will be necessary for us to send students home if they present with any symptoms that could indicate COVID-19. Please have plans in place to pick up your child promptly, if called by the school nurse. Thank you for your assistance.
Please contact me at any time if you have a question or concern for illness or possible COVID-19 exposure. I will be more than happy to walk you through the steps for what needs to be done and will do my best to provide specific and clear directives.
Throughout the district, we have put physical distancing into place, have built in time for hand-washing and sanitizing, and have regular cleaning and disinfection protocols in place. We are compliant with the current Governor regulation for masking.
We will continue to learn and improve as we navigate through this process together. We look forward to working closely with you, your child, and the entire school community. We are most grateful for your assistance.

HANDWASHING IS THE KEY ACTIVITY
By far, the most important surface to clean is the surface of your hands! Hand hygiene is the biggest, simplest, cheapest step you can take to protect yourself from coronavirus, and most any respiratory viral illness! But it only works if you do it, properly and consistently, before eating or touching your face, or after touching high-touch public surfaces such as doorknobs. As for the phone—yes, that is the highest-yield surface in the house to keep clean, because we touch our phones so often. The rest of the house is a much lower priority to clean, so long as we are careful to clean our hands when we come home!”
— Paul Pottinger, MD Professor of Medicine, Division of Allergy & Infectious Diseases, University of Washington School of Medicine
