    Dear Parent/Guardian: 

    I hope this notification finds each of you and your loved ones safe and well!  I wanted to take a moment to let you know that right now we have at least 21students in quarantine at the Middle School and we expect that number to increase and we have approximately 40 students who are in quarantine at the High School.  Please note that the positive cases (currently 5 at the High School and 5 at the Middle School) are below the threshold for closure but I do have a concern that these numbers may grow and needless to say I am concerned about the safety and wellbeing of all of those that I serve. 

    With all of that being said, out of an abundance of caution and as part of my goal to do what we can to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, I have decided that the entire school district (K-12) will operate on a synchronous, virtual platform on Friday, March 26th which as all of you know is the day before we begin our Spring Break.  Hence, all students will stay home as there will be no in-person classes on Friday.  All sports practices will also be cancelled and can resume on a normal schedule on Monday, March 29th.  Additionally, all schools will reopen on Tuesday, April 6th, as per our normal schedule unless of course something unforeseen happens over the time that we are closed for Spring Break.  

    I apologize for any inconvenience that this decision may cause any of you but I believe this is the best decision going forward.  Should you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to me at your earliest convenience.

    Sincerely,

    Dr. John A. Toleno
    Superintendent of Schools
