HEALTH NOTICES:

Fifth Grade Parents:  Please read this letter regarding necessary 6th Grade Immunizations  6th gr immunization letter 2021.pdf

Family Travel: FYI….the numbers in Ridgewood are now considered HIGH, so…..If your family has travelled or is travelling to a place other than New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, or Delaware, you must quarantine for 10 days from your return to New Jersey, OR you can get a Covid test on day 3-5 upon your return, and if it is negative,  provide written results to Mrs. Manke so you can return to school after day 7.  Please keep this in mind when you are making plans for Spring break.  Right now, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be changing.  Please let Mrs. Manke know where you traveled and the date you returned, so we can figure out when your child may return to school.  Thank you.
