Toms River High School South
September 17th 2021
Dear TR HS South Family,
Thank you for supporting and facilitating a FANTASTIC return to our Tribe! Our students, staff and families have returned the Spirit, Tradition, Excellence and Pride back to our hallways and we couldn't be more excited about it. With the fall winds upon us our building is cooling down and starting on Monday we will require ALL STUDENTS to be masked unless they are medically approved through the school as per the Governor's Executive Order. Our focus is and will remain the education and well being of our students. Under this order the benefit of wearing the mask properly is that if a student comes in close contact with another that has tested positive for Covid-19 while wearing the mask, they will NOT have to quarantine unless they have symptoms.
We will be conscious of students needs and of course allow for mask breaks as needed in controlled areas.
I am asking for everyone's support so that we may focus on our students while they are here and us supporting their aspirations.
Tribe On and Be Well!

Message from our Nurse's Office
Dear Parents/ Guardians:
The "School Health Program" designed to improve, protect, and promote the health of all students has been delayed due to COVID-19 restrictions. As a result of COVID-19, the school nurses will not be providing students with health screenings this year. Please contact your child's school nurse, if there is a specific concern regarding your child's health.
Furthermore, the Academy of Pediatrics recommends all children to have a yearly wellness visit. If your child has received his/her annual physical from a pediatrician, please forward a copy of the physical to the school nurse.
