COVID-19 Resources and Information


    We cannot wait to welcome your children to the start of another school year!  Please know that our plans align with the Restart and Recovery Plan: The Road Back, Governor Murphy’s executive orders, and NJ Department of Health/CDC recommendations.

    SDS Return to School Handbook 2021

    We encourage you to help prepare your child by reviewing the attached links and reinforcing the following topics with him/her:

    • How to properly wear a mask (covering both the nose and mouth) and how this is important to keep our school community safe and healthy
    • What it means to be socially distant (6 feet, in kids terms, is the width of a car or roughly a pool “noodle.”)
    • How school might look different this year, as compared to the past 
    • How to properly wash his/her hands and its importance
    • Managing personal tasks independently (tying shoes, zipping and unzipping coats and buttons, opening snack and drink materials, etc.)

    Please Note the New Attendance Procedures:

    Parents need to report student absences on our absentee line via email: 

    The subject of your email should read: “LAST NAME and HOMEROOM” Attendance (For example -Camean KH - Attendance) In the body of the email, please include:

    • Your Child’s Name (first & last)
