Mrs. Harding's 2nd Grade
We set up a science experiment last week to learn about and apply the Scientific Method. We had first learned about the Scientific Method from a read aloud entitled, "Zoey and Sassafras: Dragons and Marshmallows" by Asia Citro. The question posed was: How long does it take bread to mold? We set up the experiment with a few different variables: types of bread (bakery sourdough vs. factory Wonder bread) and level of contamination (bread touched with a gloved hand vs. bread touched with contaminated hands). Contaminated hands were from surface contaminants in our classroom. Students made hypotheses predicting which kind of bread would mold first (bakery vs. factory and "clean" vs. contaminated) and estimated the amount of time until the molding started. The bread slices are hanging up in our classroom with students making regular check-ins to record observations (evidence of mold or other changes) with the final goal being to answer our question: How long does it take bread to mold?
Phase Two: effective January 26, 2022, all Haddon Heights students who meet any of the following criteria should isolate for at least 5 full days and may return to school on day 6 if they are asymptomatic:
- test positive for COVID-19 infection
- have symptoms of COVID-19 (including those waiting for test results or who haven’t been tested)
- are exposed close contacts age 12 or older who completed the primary series of a recommended COVID-19 vaccine, but have not received a recommended booster shot when eligible or who are not fully vaccinated.
Returning students on days 6-10 will need to wear their masks at all times, including at recess. Students will also eat lunch in an auxiliary room until the 10 day timeline is complete. If you do not want your child to follow these protocols for lunch, you may sign them out for lunch, and sign them in upon return. If you have any questions regarding our new protocol, please contact the main office. We thank you in advance for your flexibility during this time.
They must wear a well-fitted mask at home and in public through day 10. Symptomatic individuals must remain isolated for the 10 day period. The most recent NJDOH COVID-19 Public Health Recommendations for Local Health Departments for K-12 Schools can be found at the link below. COVID-19 Public Health Recommendations for Local Health Departments for K-12 Schools In previous communications we notified parents and guardians of testing opportunities for their students.

Lunch- February 2022
As you know, the school lunches are free. As the students enter their classrooms, the teacher will ask each student if they brought lunch from home or if they are getting a school lunch. The teachers will take the students' school lunch orders based on the menu choices for that day. The menus are located on the school website. If the student is getting a school lunch for that day, we will assume that you approved your child to receive and consume the school lunch.
