Important Update - January 8, 2021
Posted on 01/11/2021

Good Evening Staff, Parents, and Guardians,

I wanted to take this opportunity to remind families that when we quarantine students, it does include the weekend. Therefore, if your child has been quarantined due to an exposure at school, he/she should remain quarantined on the weekends as well. This recommendation is aligned with CDC and DPH guidelines.

I also want to advise families that if we are made aware of a positive case on evenings, holidays, or weekends, requiring a quarantine, we may notify you via our SchoolMessenger system. As always, you can contact your child’s school nurse for any follow up questions on the next business day.

Below please find the reported NPS COVID cases for January 7(addendum) and January 8,  2021.
