Egg Harbor Township High School
Week of March 14, 2021
A Message From Our Principal
It is really beginning to look a lot like the first day of school. All the preparations are in place and final touches put on in the classrooms. Starting the week of March 22nd our students will have the opportunity to return to the in person 4/1 model of learning. This is our next phase of getting back to a normal day.
Monday, March 22nd will be a full virtual day as it has been. Starting on Tuesday, March 23rd, students who have chosen in person learning will be coming into a four day, abbreviated rotating schedule. It is very exciting!
Students have been wearing masks everyday they are in the building and have been doing a fabulous job of wearing them correctly and being supportive of each other and their teachers. Students have practiced social distancing and have used the many hand sanitizing stations throughout the building and in classrooms. As we return to this 4 day in person schedule we will have more students in the building, more students in the classrooms. To keep us all safe and be respectful of others, face shields will also be worn. They will be handed out as each student enters the building on Tuesday. Administration and Security will be at the doors. It is important that students understand the necessity of wearing both the masks and the face shields while in the hallways. It is all about safety and wanting to be preventative.
When students are in the classrooms it will be only at the discretion of the teacher that they may remove the face shields. Some classes will be small and there will be six feet of distance between students. However, there will be classrooms where the count is high, and the extra precautions will be necessary. We need for all students to do their best, follow the handbook with proper dress code, and follow the policies set in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Currently, we have our special education population in the building every day and they have been wearing both their masks and their face shields in certain areas. It is working out fine.
With an uptick in Covid-19 cases in the state, the NJSIAA has sent reminders for athletic teams. All athletes indoor and outdoor must wear masks when not playing. All athletes sitting and waiting to play on the sidelines or on the bench must be masked-up. I believe we have seen the importance of masks being worn and at this time we can not let our guard down.
I can not thank our parents, guardians, and teachers enough for their help, cooperation, and patience as we continue to navigate through this pandemic. Our staff is looking forward to the return of more students this coming week. If parents/guardians have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call the school and speak with myself or your child's assistant principal.
Until next week, stay safe, be well, continue to dream of the possibilities ahead of us, be happy and smile at someone!
