March 29 Letter to Parents
Posted on 03/29/2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Although the Central West Region is in the Orange Covid level, we are able to move ahead with our transition plans, and will be able to respond to any changes in the region. Our District protocols have and will continue to maintain the safest environment for our students, faculty and staff. Please note – the week after Spring Recess will offer all districts the challenge of monitoring the impacts of student and staff travel. The CTSD does not plan to be remote the week after Spring Recess. However, our District will monitor the data and respond accordingly to continue to provide the safest environment for our students, faculty and staff.

It is imperative that we all follow the NJ Travel Guidelines. Please review:

The following plans have been developed to be implemented commencing April 12, 2021. Please note the following:

  • Our District is able to maintain this plan while we are maintaining the highest standard of social distancing of six feet.
  • Classrooms have been reassigned to allow for extra space
  • All sanitizing protocols have been established.
  • All lunch protocols will be followed as outlined in the CTSD Protocols outlined here.
  • The Transportation Department will notify you of any changes in pick-up and drop off times.
  • Each Principal will communicate specifics as it relates to their school arrival and dismissal times, including staggered car lines for student drop off and pick up. Please see the Weekly Update here
  • Virtual C students will continue to have the option to pick up lunches on Mondays, from 12:30 - 1:30 at CTMS.
  • CTSD Lunch Service Updates - please see this link

To maintain transparency and for planning purposes, this chart outlines current transition plans for the week after Spring Break. Please note that we will not combine cohorts at this time, to minimize the impacts related to Spring Break travel. This information will remain in place unless the region moves into a higher level of Covid activity, or quarantine requirements impact building operations. Work Family Connection will operate on the same schedule it has been following post Spring Break.
