BARNEGAT – Superintendent Dr. Brain Latwis has released a letter announcing that all Barnegat Schools will be returning to in-person learning five days a week beginning January 25.
In the letter, Latwis wrote that the district has safety measures in place to ensure its students have a safe education. These safety measures include practicing safety protocols like washing hands regularly, avoiding touching your face, wearing a mask, social distancing and a sanitation schedule.
The synchronous model of learning the district will be using allows a student to log in, participate in class and not miss instruction if they need to stay home.
The New Jersey Health Department states that any COVID-19 positive student must stay home and cannot return to school unless they either have a negative test result or have quarantined for at least 10 days.
Latwis encourages all parents and guardians to continue to be responsible by not sending their children to school if they are feeling ill and are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms. He also encourages parents and students to wash their hands, practice social distancing, wear a face mask in school and in social settings and continue to monitor their health for symptoms.
