Dear Parents and Caregivers,
Jersey City Public Schools posted an update regarding COVID-19. Please see the letter from Superintendent Franklin Walker for more information.
The Jersey City Public Schools will have a 12:30pm dismissal for students this Wednesday, March 11, 2020 to initiate plans and coordinate with staff for satellite learning options.
There will be NO CASPER and AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES! A make-up class will be added to Basketball Wednesday and Bookworms Reading Club with Ms. Isoldi on May 13, 2020.
Highlights from the Jersey City Public Schools COVID Update:
“As a precautionary measure during the cold and flu season, we maintain an enhanced daily cleaning and sanitizing regimen at all our schools. We are using an approved disinfecting/sanitizing process on all solid surfaces in our buildings each day.”
“The district encourages frequent hand washing for students and staff and continues to advise those who are ill to remain home.”
“As recommended by the CDC, face masks are not a protective measure and are meant to be used for those who are ill or experiencing symptoms. Please do not send your child to school wearing a mask. If your child comes to school wearing a mask, we will assume they are ill and contact you to retrieve your child immediately.”
“Please make sure your child’s school has your current telephone number and email address.”
“The Department of Health and the Jersey City Public School District recommend that all families with a child who travels to an area of the world impacted by the Coronavirus, to please contact their child’s principal and/or school nurse prior to sending their child back to school.”
Our school is strictly following these rules and recommendations set by the Jersey City Public Schools and Principal Watkins-Williams is continuously in contact with the district officials for updates. Please see below Principal Watkins-Williams’ letter to the PS16 families.
