school family students
 
We must all remain vigilant during remote learning. Until vaccinations are available, we all must continue to socially distance, wear our masks, wash our hands frequently, and carefully follow all the protocols in our community and schools. Please review and follow the guidelines provided. 
 
Contact your School Nurse
Parents must continue to contact your school nurse during remote learning if your child should come into close contact with a positive case of COVID 19 or if they test positive.
 
Daily Health Screener
All families should continue to use the Daily Health Screener each day to monitor your child's symptoms during remote learning. This will continue when we return to school. Stay in the habit of using the screener to help identify and address symptoms early should they occur.
 
NJDOH Requirements for School - COVID like symptoms and children
NJ continues to experience COVID-19 transmission among school-aged children. In children, signs and symptoms are often mild, and can be indistinguishable from COVID-19 and other illnesses. Therefore the NJDOH recommends that any child with COVID-19 compatible symptoms not return to school unless they have either received a negative viral test or isolated for a period of 10 days and without fever for a period of 24 hours. Please be aware our schools will be following these measures.
