Dear JKHA/RKYHS Families,
I hope you are well and are enjoying the first days of summer. Despite the many challenges of the 2020-2021 academic year, we came together as a community and persevered. Drawing on the strength and vitality of our school, we leveraged our resources to achieve unimaginable success across all divisions.
As we look ahead to 2021-2022, our Covid policies will be informed by the guidelines and recommendations of the New Jersey Department of Health, the Livingston School District, and the CDC. In response to some of your questions we offer the following guidance, which is subject to change:
Governor Murphy announced on Monday, June 28th, that local school districts will determine masking policies for their students. The Livingston school district has yet to announce its masking policies for the 2021-2022 school year.
There are no travel restrictions for vaccinated individuals. Non-vaccinated children and adults who travel must quarantine for seven days. The policy states:
“...unvaccinated individuals who do travel should get tested 1-3 days before their trip, 3-5 days after travel, and stay home and self-quarantine for 7 days after domestic travel.
Assuming that school is in person and the need for grade-wide or cohort quarantine is obviated, JKHA/RKYHS will not offer remote learning as an option for students who are absent.
As we anticipate returning to normalcy, we look forward to an exceptional year of learning in 2021-2022. We will update our community about mitigation policies when information is available.
Please note that all JKHA/RKYHS offices will be closed for the holiday weekend from July 2nd until July 6th. JKHA/RKYHS offices will reopen on July 7th. We wish you a healthy summer, replete with meaningful and memorable family engagements.
Eliezer E. Rubin
