Now that January, 2022 is upon, we wish to thank you for your ongoing support throughout the ongoing 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).  These directives do change from time to time and we make every effort to remain up to date and compliant with any changes in the directives.

    Rest assured that if you child has had an exposure  or any other COVID-19 related scenario, that I will promptly provide you with any needed information and quarantine specifics.  If you have any questions related to COVID-19 and related protocols, I am more than happy to assist you.  We will continue to work hard to ensure the safest and healthiest Bullock School environment that we can.  



     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.  We are grateful for your assistance when quarantine has been requested.  This is difficult and very much appreciated.

      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.

    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.



    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!”

    Washing your hands properly takes about as long as singing "Happy Birthday" twice,

    When to Wash Your Hands
    Germs can spread easily between other people and through contaminated surfaces, so be especially sure to wash your hands after being in public places with frequently touched surfaces, such as grocery stores, coffee shops, or gas stations. Be sure not to touch your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands, and always wash your hands before you eat or prepare food. If you touch your phone with unwashed hands, do not hold your phone to your face until your hands are washed and your phone is disinfected.

    Other times to wash your hands include:

    Before, during, and after preparing food
    Before eating
    Before and after caring for someone who is sick
    After using the bathroom
    After changing a diaper or helping your child use the bathroom
    After blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing (and be sure to sneeze or cough into your elbow or a tissue)
    After handling an animal, animal food, or animal waste
    After handling trash or taking out the garbage
    After touching commonly-touched surfaces, such as doorknobs, electronic devices, or shopping carts
