MADISON, NJ - There will not be any increases to in-person learning in the Madison School District, said Madison School District Superintendent Mark Schwarz.
"We will not increase in-person learning rates until our regional risk assessment stabilizes at the “Moderate” or “Low” level", he said.
Once the risk stabilizes, school officials will then review conditions with the Madison Health Department to determine the next steps. According to school officials, the next steps include, at the elementary level, eating lunch at school. At the middle school and high school levels, the next level will include eating lunches and/or students attending every day.
"As these changes will increase the potential for in-school transmission, we cannot begin such new practices until rates subside and stabilize", he said.
According to the dashboard, there have been 92 cases to date with one in-school transmission.

Schwarz asked the community to remain diligent outside of school.
"Please limit social interactions and trips outside the home", he said. "If you do interact with others, maintain distancing, wear masks, avoid sharing objects, and ensure adequate ventilation and hand hygiene. If anyone in your household is sick, it is best for all students within the household to attend school remotely and parents should notify the school".
