Important Executive Director ESY Update

We look forward to the start of Newmark's Extended School Year (ESY) beginning next Tuesday, July 6, 2021. Our dedicated teachers and staff have worked very hard to prepare for a well-developed and fun program for your child.    

View important Executive Director's VIDEO MESSAGE on What To Expect At ESY / COVID-19 Safety Protocols

Please note the following areas based on NJ Department of Health Guidelines that we have in place:

 

  • Daily COVID-19 Screening - Every morning during ESY, you will receive an email reminder to complete your daily COVID-19 Screening Form BEFORE 8:00 AM each morning at Newmark.  Please login to your  Newmark PowerSchool/Unified Classroom Parent Portal to complete the Daily COVID-19 Screening  (under "Forms").  View How To Access Daily COVID-19 Screening Form.  Any student with positive symptoms will not be allowed to return to school.
  • Mask Wearing Policy - At this time, all students and staff will be required to wear masks when inside the Newmark building.  Students will be able to remove their masks when outside and following the 6' social distancing protocol. 
  • Quarantine Policy - The CDC and New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH) do NOT require fully vaccinated people to quarantine if they are exposed.  A fully vaccinated person would ONLY need to isolate if they tested positive for COVID-19.  Newmark's School Nurse must have your child's vaccination card on file to determine if quarantine is needed.
  • Travel Policy - If fully vaccinated, students can travel and do not need to quarantine.  Newmark School must have your vaccination card on file.  If not vaccinated, the student must quarantine for 7 days upon return and take COVID-19 test at Day 5.  A Negative test must be sent to School Nurse and then student can return on Day 8.   

 

If you have any questions, please feel free reach to covid@newmarkeducation.com or contact Nurse Carroll directly.  As always, we appreciate all the support our new and returning families.  We look forward to seeing your child at ESY!
