Pittsgrove Township School District
EMERGENCY DISTRICT CLOSURE


Emergency Virtual or Remote Instruction Program
This plan would be implemented during a district closure lasting more than three consecutive school days due to a declared state of emergency, declared public health emergency, or a directive by the appropriate health agency or officer to institute a public health-related closure. A superintendent must consult with the board of education, if practicable, prior to implementing the school district’s plan of virtual or remote instruction. A day of virtual or remote instruction, if instituted under a plan approved by the Commissioner of Education, is considered the equivalent of a full day of school attendance for the purposes of meeting State and local graduation requirements, awarding of course credit, and such other matters as determined by the Commissioner of Education.

PUBLIC HEALTH RECOMMENDATIONS


NJDOH Public Health Recommendations for K-12 Schools

OVERVIEW: This guidance is based on what is currently known about the transmission and severity of COVID-19 and is subject to change as additional information is learned. The following recommendations should be used by local health departments to aid schools in developing a layered prevention strategy to help prevent the spread of COVID-19. Schools should implement as many layers as feasible, although the absence of one or more of the strategies outlined in this document does not preclude the reopening of a school facility for full-day in-person operation with all enrolled students and staff present.

KEY POINTS:
  
(1) Masks after returning from isolation days 6-10,  (2) Cleaning, Disinfection and Airflow, 
(3) Outbreaks

Public Health Recommendations for Implementing
COVID-19 Screening 
Testing in K-12 Schools

OVERVIEW: Viral testing strategies in schools are part of a comprehensive prevention approach. Testing should not be used alone, but in combination with other prevention strategies to reduce the risk of SARS-CoV-2 transmission in schools. When schools implement testing combined with prevention strategies, they can detect new cases to prevent outbreaks, reduce the risk of further transmission, and protect students, teachers, and staff from COVID-19.
