GLEN ROCK, NJ - The Board of Education is poised to vote on the district's physical return to school plan for the fall on August 4 in which there will be half the student population in any one school at one time, the superintendent said in a video on July 17.
K-5 students will attend school on an AM/PM schedule with half the student population in school at any one time. The first session will be from 8:33 a.m. to 11:23 a.m., then there will be a cleaning period, after which an afternoon session will commence from 12:28 p.m. to 3:18 p.m.
The middle/high school students will operate on an A/B schedule in which every other day, half the population will spend a full day in school.
The high school will have a lunch period, but Pomptonian, the district's lunch provider, will not be serving lunch. Students will have to bring lunch each day.
Online teaching will be in the mix.
Superintendent Brett Charleston said a parent survey went out on July 17 and as of July 19, that survey was complete.
"As is with all of our decisions, we think about what's best for our students and staff in these decisions," he said.
All students must wear a mask and teachers will wear shields and/or masks.
Outdoor instruction will be fit in as it is possible.
The full comprehensive plan will be presented to the Board of Education on August 4 at the public meeting, a Zoom meeting that will begin at 7 p.m.
