• We cannot wait to welcome your children, in person and virtually, to the start of another, albeit different, school year!  Please know that our plans align with the NJ Department of Education Guidelines, Governor Murphy’s executive orders, and NJ Department of Health/CDC recommendations.

    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 (sitting in rows in the classroom, not leaving their seats, very limited physical and social interaction with their peers)
    • 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: bmsattendance@hanovertwpschools.org 

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

    • Your Child’s Name (first & last)
    • Your Child’s Homeroom Teacher
    • Reason for the Absence (be specific)
    • If your child normally attends HTSACC, follow their normal procedures
