Masks. Over your nose. Over your mouth. All the time.
Social Distancing means 3-6 feet from others at all times and whenever possible.
Hygiene. Wash your hands often for at least 20 seconds with soap and water. Use hand sanitizer frequently.
If you are feeling sick, please do not come to school. If you are feeling sick in school, inform a teacher, and they will call the nurse's office before sending you.
Yesterday, a letter was sent to all staff and parents from our Superintendent detailing some changes to quarantine dates related to continued rising concerns of COVID19 in our region. I simply can't stress enough to everyone the importance of wearing a mask and maintaining social distancing in classes and during unit lunch so we can slow the spread of the virus. We want all of our students and staff back in school. Do your part. Make good choices by always wearing your mask, returning your mask over your nose and mouth as soon as you are done eating, and most importantly, but staying spread out, especially during unit lunch. This is so very important!
I'd like to take a minute to welcome Mrs. Reganata to our school. Mrs. Reganata is our new 9/10 nurse that will continue to do the amazing work our school nurses do as we prepare to bid farewell to Mrs. Cotton, who will be retiring next Thursday. We are so lucky to have great nurses like Mrs. Cotton, Mrs. Luckiewicz and now Mrs. Reganata joining our team.

Congratulations to the girls volleyball team who improved their record to 6 and 0 by defeating 13th ranked Cherry Hill East in straight sets on Wednesday. Scores were 25-21 and 26-24. The minutemaids were down 24 to 19 in set-2, but completed an amazing comeback highlighted by Bryn Bautista's timely hitting, and McKenna Quinn's 7-point service-run to finish off the cougars. Your Minutemaids are now ranked 3rd in New Jersey's Group 4-South, and will host top ranked Williamstown this afternoon at 3:45 in the 11/12 gym.
