As we continue to face the challenges of a rapidly developing global health problem, we would like to update our school community and reassure everyone that we are taking all necessary steps to protect our students, faculty and staff.
Please know that our schools follow standard procedures for cleaning and disinfecting with an EPA-registered product. Typically, this means daily sanitizing surfaces and objects that are touched often, such as desks, countertops, doorknobs, computer keyboards, hands-on learning items, faucet handles and phones.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working hard to learn as much as possible about this new virus so that they can better understand how it spreads and its associated illness. The New Jersey Department of Health is also working hard by developing guidance and education materials should this new virus impact our residents.
For up-to-date information on the coronavirus, including protocols for prevention, the following are excellent resources.
