We hope that you and your families enjoyed a happy and healthy winter break. This is a reminder that the District’s in-person/Hybrid Learning model will resume in our schools on Monday, January 4. Beginning on Monday, Cohort A will attend school on Monday and Tuesday; Cohort B will attend on Wednesday through Friday. Regular menu and meal service for students will resume at the High School Cafeteria for Virtual students and at each individual building for in-person/Hybrid students.
Parents are reminded to complete the Screening Form before sending their children to school. The screening form has been changed to meet new and more rigorous health and safety requirements established by the CDC and the Bergen County Health Department. Please make sure that all questions are reviewed carefully and answered accurately. If you have any additional questions, please contact your child’s school Administration.
As you know, conditions for our re-opening plan on January 4 can change at a moment’s notice, so that we ask for your patience and understanding, and your preparedness should we need to revert to an all-virtual model. The district is closely following guidelines established by the NJ Department of Education including requiring everyone to wear a face covering, promoting social distancing to the maximum extent possible, utilizing a daily pre-screening form, and disinfecting buildings each and every night. In the event that there is ever a staff shortage due to conditions related to medical restrictions and other personnel issues, the district will consider combining classes and re-assigning staff if possible. This may impact the scheduling of classes and how instruction may be delivered. While this situation is not ideal, the district remains committed to providing both its in person and virtual only students with the best instructional program possible under these most trying conditions.
We look forward to welcoming our students and staff back for the new year. Stay safe, wear a face covering, social distance when possible, and wash your hands frequently.
