Schedule Update from Superintendent Gall September 16, 2020

As we mentioned in our previous notification, our District Pandemic Teams met to deliberate whether or not we should transition to full days while still using a cohort model.

Collectively, our Pandemic Teams feel it would be wise to extend our early dismissal days due, in part, to recent instances of COVID in surrounding school districts.  We understand that this is inconvenient for parents, however, our goal remains to not just open schools safely, but to keep them open. We are therefore extending our early dismissal days for one more week. The Pandemic Team feels this is in the best interest of everyone's health and safety and sincerely apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause. We now anticipate beginning full days on Monday, September 28th. Please be aware that when we do transition to full days, we will still operate on our current Cohort A/B Schedule.
 
We examined the following areas to arrive at this perspective:

1. https://covidactnow.org/us/nj?s=1033220

2. https://www.state.nj.us/health/cd/statistics/covid/index.shtml

3. COVID-19 instances within our regional school districts as it may relate to employees who reside in or also work in those areas.
