Please the below correspondence from Mrs. Bittner, Superintendent of Schools:
Hello HHSD Families.
As you may be aware, there has been an increase in positive COVID cases this month throughout the state and in our immediate region. Although our total case numbers were down over the last three months, we have seen a significant increase in cases in May, with numbers doubling over the weekend (2021-2022 COVID-19 Dashboard).
As a result, I am reaching out with the following recommendations and reminders:
We are strongly encouraging masking while we remain in the High (orange) level as determined by the Department of Health. The weekly COVID-19 Activity Level Report can be located HERE.
If your child is deemed a close contact through school, you will be notified of this contact, but your child will not be required to quarantine. If exposed, we ask that you vigilantly monitor your child for symptoms and have them tested 5 days after exposure. We also recommend that your child wears a mask for at least 10 days from the date of exposure.
If anyone in your household tests positive for COVID, please contact the school nurse. Close contacts that occur within the household will result in quarantine unless your child is fully vaccinated. Vaccinated household contacts will be asked to wear a mask for at least 10 days from the date of exposure and get tested after five days.
Students age 12+ must be boosted in order to be considered fully vaccinated. Send updated vaccination information to the school nurse.
If your child is positive or if you have any questions regarding COVID protocol, please contact the school nurse directly.
Please continue to monitor your child for symptoms each day and communicate with the school nurse directly regarding any COVID related concerns.
Thank you for your continued flexibility and understanding as we monitor this current situation. Be well and stay safe!

Lessons of the Week!
3rd Grade: Mrs. Aceto and Mrs. Schoettler's Classes
Kindness Rocks is an effort to spread kindness and positive messages across the world. Our third grade classes at Glenview Avenue School in Haddon Heights, NJ created our own Kindness Rocks and we would like you to help us spread the joy. If you have found one of our rocks, feel free to pick it up and keep it if you need the inspiration. You can also pass the rock along by leaving it at another location for others to find and be inspired. If you found one of our rocks, please take a moment to leave us a message so our classes can track the joy and inspiration and know that we have made a difference. If you find one of our kindness rocks along your way, you can go to rocks.gogarnets.com and tell where you found your rock!
Nurse and Covid Updates:
Absences: When you are calling the school to report your student absent, please include the reason for the absence (covid like symptoms, vacation, stomach ache, etc.) Otherwise, you will be receiving a phone call or email to confirm the reason for absence.
Also, according to a recent CDC update, for a student who has Covid like symptoms, a negative covid will be required to return to school.
Please be reminded that students must be fully vaccinated in order to avoid quarantine if exposed. In accordance with the Department of Health guidance, an individual is considered up to date after having received all recommended doses, including a booster dose when eligible. Fully vaccinated means at least two weeks past the completion of the series and a booster if applicable. Please ensure that the school nurse has a copy of your child’s vaccination card if applicable to avoid unnecessary quarantine.
COVID TESTING FOR SCHOOLS
Covid Testing for Student's and Staff is available at the Haddon Heights High School. Please see attached flyer for details and registration information.
