Our newsletter delivers the local news that you can trust.

If at any time a student in our district or someone who lives in their home tests positive, you will hear from immediately and directly from my office.

If you received a call from Passaic Valley informing you that your High School student was a contact of a contact, there is no CDC requirement that your younger child be quarantined.

However, we ask that you closely monitor symptoms and keep the health and safety of all in mind when making quarantine decisions.

Please make sure that you are in close contact with you child's Principal and School Nurse should these or any other COVID related situations arise.

The 2020-2021 school year has started off strong and in order for us to continue with in-person instruction we need to work together to be transparent, be patient, and be flexible.

Be well,
