Community Update Dated January 13th ~ New Guidelines Starting January 18th, 2022

The health of our students is a TOP priority!

Please contact Michelle DeVito, WFS School Nurse, for the following reasons:

1. Your child is considered a close contact of a COVID+ individual.

2. Your child is awaiting COVID test results.

3. Your child has tested positive for COVID.

4. Your child is experiencing symptoms of illness. Monitor for symptoms based on the following guidelines:

  • ONE of the following: cough, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, or new loss of taste or smell
  • OR TWO of the following: fever, shaking/chills, congestion/runny nose, sore throat, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, body aches, or headaches

If your child exhibits one of the first three symptoms or two of any symptom, a negative rapid test or pcr test would be required to come back to school and we encourage any siblings to remain home until test results are received. RAPID or PCR TEST RESULTS are accepted.

At home tests are NOT accepted.

If you have any questions please contact Michelle DeVito, WFS School Nurse.

***If you are questioning your child's symptoms, as they may or may not relate to our guidelines, we ask that you keep your child home until you speak to our school nurse. Keeping all of our students and staff members healthy is very important to us.***

If a student must quarantine, it is considered an excused absence and they will continue to receive teacher support until the quarantine period has ended.

The dashboard is updated every Friday afternoon.

Virtual Instruction

A friendly reminder, that students who are quarantined by the school for COVID related reasons, will be offered the option of virtual instruction during the quarantine period. General absences and illnesses do not qualify for virtual learning. At this time, our substitute teachers do not offer live instruction during the school day. If your child's teacher is absent there will be no live virtual instruction that day.

School Lunch

This year, all students are entitled to a free school lunch. A school lunch menu is available on our school and District website. Please note the following information:

1. Each student must receive a full lunch. Choosing only certain items is not permitted.

2. Only 1 lunch is served to each child.

3. If your child has a food allergy, we encourage you to carefully review the Sodexo online menu. If you have any questions regarding the items and/or ingredients please contact Sodexo before allowing your child to receive the lunch. We are currently NOT utilizing the PIN system which previously has alerted the Sodexo workers of individual student allergies.

It has been brought to our attention that there are times when the school lunch menu changes. Unfortunately, these changes are often due to supply and/ or delivery issues. We ask that you send your child to school with an extra healthy snack in the event they do not like or want to eat the new item(s) that may appear on the menu.

If you have any concerns or questions related to our school lunches, please contact Sodexo Food Services. Sodexo Food Director, Rocio Johnson can be reached at 732.462. 8400 x8870 or X8871

Water Bottles

We encourage all students to bring extra water bottles to school. At this time, we are not utilizing our communal water fountains so bringing extra water bottles to school help make our students comfortable through snack time, lunch, recess, and physical education. Water bottles are not provided by the school. Thank you!
