 Office of the Superintendent

January 21, 2021

Dear Parents and School Community Members,

I want to remind everyone that the next Board of Education meeting is scheduled for Thursday, January 28 at 7:00 pm. Please note the earlier start time for the 2021 calendar year.

I also am sharing a link to the family and staff survey results from December. We are pleased that we have been able to keep the schools open for in-person instruction, but we also respect the feedback we have received and have been looking at options for enhancing instruction as we move through this unusual school year. I plan to provide an update at the next board meeting.      

Meanwhile, please continue to observe all health and safety protocols and to reach out to your child’s school with any questions. I want you to know that based on revised NJDOH guidance, we are no longer required to exclude close contacts of symptomatic individuals from school. Only close contacts of individuals with positive test results will be forced to quarantine. We will still continue to proceed cautiously and consult with our local health official. The safety of our school community remains our top priority.  

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Very truly yours,

George P. Alexis
Superintendent
