Enjoy family and friends during this well deserved break and stay safe!
Governor Murphy recently announced that NJ high schools with low to moderate COVID-19 activity can reduce social distancing practices to 3 feet. Unfortunately, Burlington County has increased the COVID-19 matrix alert level to orange (high) from yellow (moderate).
In anticipation of a return to the moderate level, we would offer an additional rotation day to each student. We ask that you complete this survey and indicate whether you would like your child to add an additional rotation day to their schedule.
***This survey was also sent out to parents via an email blast...ONLY COMPLETE THE FORM ONE TIME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED AN ADDITIONAL DAY***
Face masks are still required to be worn by all students and staff, and we will continue to follow original social distancing practices of remaining 6 feet apart in the school cafeteria as well as other marked areas within the building.
Upcoming Senior Events:
May 25th (Rain Date 5/26) Outdoor Movie Night
Six Flags Great Adventure BCIT Medford Senior Day (Date TBD)

- Should the student be absent in excess of six unexcused days per semester, then he/she will be placed on non-credit status.
- Students who exceed a total of nine or more days with excused or unexcused absences from school for the semester will not be eligible for noncredit remediation, and may be referred to the Superintendent for consideration for referral to the Board of Education for action.
- Partial absences caused by lateness to school or early departure from school will be counted toward non-credit. Each partial absence will be equal to at least .25 of a day. Four (4) such partial absences shall equal one (1) day absence for the purpose of non-credit.
- All excused absences require written documentation to verify the nature of the absence. Parent letters excusing a student for attendance purposes are not acceptable. Medical notes need to be from a medical professional. Please review the policy below regarding approved excused days. If your son/daughter is dealing with a prolonged medical issue, please communicate with your guidance counselor and we can work together to develop a plan.
