MONTVILLE, NJ – Superintendent of Schools René Rovtar announced that a Cedar Hill Elementary School employee tested positive for COVID-19.

The name of the employee will not be released, she said, but the Cedar Hill School nurse has contacted those who may have had direct contact with this individual.

Rovtar confirmed that schools will be closed for a third week, beyond the originally announced two weeks, due to the governor’s closure. With that third week leading into a week of spring break, students will definitely not be returning to school buildings for classes until April 13, depending on Governor Murphy’s orders.

Rovtar thanked teachers, administrators and parents for their efforts as the first week of distance learning draws to a close – a week she has deemed “successful.”

“It is a new realm for all of us and we will certainly grow in our abilities as we all become more familiar with the technology and resources available to support instruction,” she wrote in an email to staff and parents. “I also want to thank our parents and caregivers for their enthusiastic embrace of their new roles in facilitating education in your homes. I am very grateful for all that you are doing.”
