Hardyston School District

Weekend Update April 4, 2021

Spring Break Travel Quarantine

This information is from the latest Department of Health guidelines.

If you must travel:

  • Get tested 3-5 days after your trip and stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel, even if your test is negative. If you don't get tested, stay home and self-quarantine for 10 days after travel.
  • That guidance applies for any travel outside of: NJ, NY, PA, DE, CT
  • This guidance applies to you EVEN IF you are fully vaccinated or have fully recovered from COVID-19 in the past 3 months.

It is incredibly important that you notify the administration if you plan to travel outside of New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Delaware, or Connecticut.

Our ability to open school to in-person instruction rests solely upon our ability to limit the quarantining of students and staff.

Yearbook Fun!

Thank you for starting to send in pictures last week! Please keep sending them. We especially need Preschool through Grade 3!

As our Middle School students create this year's yearbook, we are asking parents to e-mail photos of their child's virtual learning experiences to yearbook@htps.org. Please be sure to include the child's name and grade level with the image being sent.

Please remember, we will try to include all images sent in; however, we hope you understand if we are not able to fit all due to page limits.

Our thanks and we look forward to seeing some great pictures.
