Morris County and State Covid Activity Level Index - ORANGE

Last week's New Jersey Department of Health Covid Activity Level Index (CALI) Report places Morris County, as well as the rest of state in the ORANGE zone. This signifies that the activity level is at a "VERY HIGH RATE". Morris County is at a Case Rate 42.18- the highest in the state. As a result, our district is immediately following the 14-DAY QUARANTINE WITH NO TEST-OUT OPTION for all close contacts, beginning Thursday, December 9, 2021. Individuals who test positive for Covid-19 will experience a ten day quarantine period either from symptom onset or from date of test.

As has been the case all school year, please continue to support the overall health and well being of our school community by keeping children home if they are experiencing any cold like symptoms. Thank you for your help!

Report Cards Are Launched!
