December 28, 2021 - COVID-19 Update: Virtual Instruction Effective Monday, January 3, 2022

Dear School Community, 

We are regularly monitoring the COVID-19 reported cases in the State, Middlesex County and within our community. As of today, the COVID-19 activity level for our region (Central East Region) is high and, within the next couple weeks, we anticipate an increase in COVID-19 cases due to the Delta and Omicron variant.

As a precautionary measure we are returning to virtual instruction for two weeks, effective Monday, January 3, 2022, with an anticipated return to in-person learning on Tuesday, January 18, 2022. As part of our plan to maintain the continuity of teaching and learning we will be implementing our District’s Emergency Virtual Instruction Plan.  Our parent guide will provide information related to daily instruction, student attendance, learning from home, and support for parents and students. Lunch and breakfast will be provided at all school locations between the hours of 11:00am and 4:00pm.

Additional information will be forthcoming to assist parents with COVID-19 testing and vaccination opportunities. Within the next couple weeks, we will reevaluate the COVID-19 positivity rates within our school community and determine next steps, with a goal to return to in-person instruction as soon as possible. 

As a reminder, health officials warn people to stay away from shopping malls, community centers and other places where large groups gather since the virus is easily spread from person-to-person.  I appreciate all that you have done to continue to promote a culture of teaching and learning during this difficult time.

Dr. Aubrey A. Johnson
