LVMS STUDENTS RETURNING TO FULL-TIME IN-PERSON LEARNING
STUDENT HEALTH CHECKS!
May 6, 2021
WTS is beyond excited to be welcoming our LVMS Panthers back to full-time in-person learning on Monday, May 10th as the COVID-19 Activity Levels continue to improve statewide. As a school community we all need to recognize the very significant shift that will take place this coming Monday. EVERYONE’S personal vigilance is needed now more than ever. We need EVERYONE to monitor their child(ren)'s health before the start of each school day. If your child has ANY illness symptom, if there is any illness in your home, if anyone in your home is awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, if your child travels outside the 5-state region of NJ, NY, CT, PA, and DE please keep your child at home and communicate as soon as possible with your school nurse. By keeping your child at home, you are greatly reducing the likelihood that your child's classmates and teachers will be negatively impacted. You are also providing the time and rest your child needs to return to optimal health. Due to the nature of the LVMS instructional program, children may log in from home and experience the day’s learning if they are feeling well enough to do so. Our goal is to keep everyone safe, healthy, and IN school. Please click HERE to access, review and print the Student Health Check Form which will help guide you as you monitor your child(ren)'s health through the end of this school year.
Thank you so very much for all of your help and support this school year as your Washington Township Schools navigated, and continues to navigate, school life amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Mr. Ippolito will be sending more information to you tomorrow. I know you share in our excitement as the children get set to return to full-time in-person learning this coming Monday!
Have a very good evening and ... Happy First Day of School all over again!
Superintendent of Schools
