NORTH HALEDON- Last week, Mayor Randy George announced the shut down of both High Mountain Middle School and Memorial Elementary School for in-person learning after being informed of one positive COVID-19 case at the Middle School. This decision was made along with the President of the Board of Health and the school's administration. While the schools were closed, the Borough Nurse conducted contact tracing.

Earlier today, Mayor Randy George released another letter to North Haledon residents announcing that High Mountain School will be closed for in-person instruction for two weeks. The reopening date is set for Monday, October 26. This is due to two more positive COVID-19 cases that occurred outside of school. The closure has been extended out of precaution. 

Memorial School is set to continue on with its hybrid model at this time. "The 5 through 8th grade Junior Falcons Football program has been temporarily shut down, and will resume its schedule on October 18th In North Haledon, the 14U baseball program will also resume its schedule on October 19th, and the soccer program resumed its schedule yesterday," Mayor George stated in his letter.
