As the school year begins this fall, students in New Jersey will be fully returning to in-person learning. With the new Delta Covid variant, we understand that families are concerned about the health and safety of their children. As a District we are aiming to ensure the safety of all of our students and staff through enforcing Covid-19 mitigation efforts like wearing face masks, social distancing when possible, keeping classrooms in cohorts, and using desk partitions where necessary. We will continue to encourage vaccination, as it continues to be the leading public health prevention strategy.
While there is no statewide policy for testing students and currently neither the CDC nor the NJDOH recommends daily testing of students, the District is continuing to investigate the availability of voluntary mobile testing and vaccination units for our community. We are in discussion with local partners, to secure and provide testing and vaccination opportunities. As we finalize these partnerships we will share them with the community and post them on this webpage. Please note that all students under 18, require parent permission to be tested and must be accompanied by a parent/guardian to receive their vaccination.
