Dear Parents and Families:

Hunterdon County has moved back into the Moderate Covid Activity (Yellow). This has changed the exclusion criteria for in person attendance.

What this means for you:


  • If positive for COVID-19, 10 days quarantine from test date and improvement of symptoms.

  • If considered a close contact of a COVID positive, a 10 day quarantine from the date of last contact/exposure. You may return on day 11 post exposure. Optional testing at day 5-7 post exposure and return in person on Day 8 with proof of a negative COVID-test given to the health office prior to return. Rapid tests are acceptable. Test sites listed below

  • Symptomatic individuals must quarantine for 10 days from onset of COVID like symptoms. If you wish to return to school prior to the 10-day period of isolation, we will require a negative COVID-19 test to be provided to the health office.

  • Report any symptoms. Two or more symptoms and your child stays home. Siblings stay home until proof of a negative test from the ill individual.

  • Call the attendance line for any absence or switch to virtual including a reason. Reasons that will be accepted for a switch to virtual include: illness, presence of symptoms, or quarantine. Any other reason stated may not be accepted.

The COVID screening form is to be completed every day of in person instruction. Any symptoms that are COVID-19 compatible must be reported to the office on days when the child is NOT in school.
