IMPORTANT INFORMATION REGARDING RETURNING TO FOUR DAYS A WEEK
NJB Welcomes you back to school! Please read the information carefully regards school opening procedures:
Hello NJB Families,
As you might have heard, our district has determined that based on current attendance, many EK-6 classrooms have enough physical space to allow students to attend in-person for four days per week rather than two. Unfortunately, not all of our classrooms have this capacity, based on attendance and the six-foot physical distancing as required by our agreements with labor partners.
I am pleased to inform you that we have determined that your classroom meets the capacity and space requirements to allow students to return to the class for four days of in-person learning each week. This means that your child can begin to come to class four days each week, Tuesday through Friday, beginning on May 18.
This decision was made after careful consideration and analysis to ensure the highest health and safety standards to protect the students and staff within the classroom. Students and staff must continue to practice health and safety guidelines as outlined in our district’s Return to Health plan. While we are attempting to combine as many cohorts as possible, please know we cannot guarantee that multiple members of each household will be given the four-day option.
This will not apply to the following teachers:
Boltz, 6th grade Le, 5/6th grade Barrish, 4th grade Edimison 5th grgrade
as they have are room capacity and will remain the same.
Should you wish your student to remain in a two-day per week model, please complete the learning options form here and select the two-day per week in-person learning option.
We are very excited to see your student on campus for additional days per week.
Again, the key takeaways from this message:
Some cohorts will be combined to allow students in these classes to attend four days each week.
This applies to some classes in EK-6 and not secondary
We will remain at six-foot physical distancing in our classrooms.
We will communicate more information over the coming days.
Christie Wells-Artman, Principal
