• Community Update January 6, 2022

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 1/6/2022

    Dear Families and Students,

     

    Red Bank Regional High School will resume in-person instruction beginning on Monday, January 10. We will utilize the regular, full-day schedule. Lunch procedures will be modified to minimize the risk of virus transmission and these will be reviewed with students on Monday. We anticipate that most athletic programs will also resume next week. Coaches and the Athletic Office will share additional information as needed.

     

    Because we have shifted to remote instruction for this week, students will be expected to attend all their classes tomorrow virtually even in the event of a snow storm. Conditions may require the building to be closed and the cancellation of any activities. Please check the school website for updates.

     

    Most importantly, please continue to do your part to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our school and community. 

     

    1. All students must report to school on Monday wearing a properly fitting mask. Students who do not follow conduct guidelines will face disciplinary action and may be sent home.

    2. It is critically important to provide the health office with vaccination updates. You can upload a photo of your student’s vaccination card to be on record with our school health office using this Student Vaccination Information Form. If you have not done so yet, get vaccinated! A reminder that vaccines are free for all. Immigration status will not be asked, and health insurance is not required. You can also visit the NJ COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Finder or contact the NJ Vaccine Call Center at 855-568-0545 for more information and to schedule an appointment.

    3. If your child is symptomatic, please keep them home and have them tested. Report all COVID-19 positive cases by using this form

     

    We thank you for your support.

    Sincerely,

    Louis Moore
    Superintendent

    Dear Families and Students,

     

    As you are aware, the recent increase in COVID-19 transmissions has impacted many of our staff and students. Unfortunately, the anticipated rate of staff absences impedes our ability to provide for adequate class coverage and supervision of students. Therefore RBR will switch to the Remote Instructional schedule starting Tuesday, January 4 until Friday, January 7. We anticipate a return to in-person instruction on Monday, January 10.

     

    All students, parents, and guardians should note the following: 

     

    • Sports will continue this week.  Any changes will be communicated through the Athletic Office. 
    • Technology Issues:  The building will be open to assist with Chromebook or connectivity issues. If you are having issues, please fill out this form for support  and you will be contacted by our Technology Department. 
    • Meal Distribution:  There will be meal distributions on Tuesday, January 4th and Thursday, January 6th from 2:30 pm to 3:30pm at the school main entrance.  All students are eligible for meals at no cost.  

     

    Please continue to do your part to minimize the impact of COVID-19 on our school and community.

     

    • Please review the Community FAQ for additional updates. Reminder: When we resume our regular program, students must adhere to the school mask policy or they will be sent home.
    • Report all COVID-19 positive cases by using this form. If you have already emailed the school health office, you do not need to do so.
    • It is critically important to provide the health office with vaccination updates. You can upload a photo of your student’s vaccination card to be on record with our school health office using this Student Vaccination Information Form
    • If your child is symptomatic, please keep them home and have them tested.

  • December 10 COVID-19 Update

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 12/16/2021

    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

     

    Both New Jersey and Monmouth County are experiencing a surge in COVID-19 transmissions.  Thus far for December, there have been 14 positive cases reported at RBR and at least 60 students have been directed to quarantine. To put this in perspective, for the entire month of November there were 11 positive cases. 

     

    As we head into winter, we all need to do our part to remain vigilant. Here are actions you and your family can take right now to protect your child, your family, and help us to maintain in-person programs.

     

    If you have not done so, get your child vaccinated.  The FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective at preventing hospitalization and severe illness. RBR will be hosting another vaccination clinic on December 21 between 3:00 and 6:00 PM, Room 140.

     

    Vaccines are free for all, immigration status will not be asked, and health insurance is not required.  On our webpage, you can find information for local vaccine clinics. You can also visit the NJ COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Finder or contact the NJ Vaccine Call Center at 855-568-0545

     

    Do your part to help our school nurses and staff do their job. If your student is already vaccinated, you can upload a photo of their vaccination card to be on record with our school health office using this Student Vaccination Information Form. This information will be kept confidential and be maintained by the school health office. You may also hand-deliver a copy of the vaccination card to the health office during regular school hours.

     

    If your child is asked to quarantine, please comply with this request. If you have questions they should be directed to the school administration, not the school nurses. See the COVID-19 FAQ for more details on the protocols we are following.

     

    Get yourself and other household members vaccinated. Students are best protected when those around them are also protected. 

     

    Continue to comply with masking requirements. Please make sure your child leaves for school with a properly fitting mask and remind them to wear it correctly in school and on the school bus. (This means the mask should cover both the mouth and the nose.)

     

    Thank you for your support.

     

    Sincerely,

  • September 29 Vaccine Update

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 9/29/2021

    Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

     

    Let’s not let history repeat itself.  Please remember that last year at this time many of us were confident the worst of the health crisis was behind us and that the impact on school programs could be minimized. As we all know, that was not the case and during the fall and winter virus transmission rates soared.

     

    Here are a few steps you and your family can take right now to protect your child, your family, and help us to maintain in-person programs.

     

    If you ride a school bus. Keep your mask on and sit in the same seat each time you ride the bus. This will greatly assist us in the event we need to do contact tracing.

     

    If you have not done so, get your child vaccinated.  Everyone 12 years-old and up is eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations. The FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death due to COVID-19 and remain the leading way to protect your child, your family, and your community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all eligible students be vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccinations for 12 through 17-year-olds require 2 doses, so for the best possible protection against COVID-19 and the highly transmissible Delta variant, students should be scheduled for their first dose as early as possible.

     

    If your student is already vaccinated, you can upload a photo of their vaccination card to be on record with our school health office using this Student Vaccination Information Form. Student vaccination records will be used when identifying close contacts and determining quarantine requirements. This information will be kept confidential and be maintained by the school health office. If you experience trouble with the form, you may email a photo of the vaccination card with your student’s name to Vaccineupdate@rbrhs.org. You may also hand deliver a copy of the vaccination card to the health office during regular school hours.

     

    Get yourself and other household members vaccinated. Students are best protected when those around them are also protected – especially if they are under the age of 12 and cannot be vaccinated themselves. 

     

    Vaccines are free for all, immigration status will not be asked, and health insurance is not required.  On our webpage, you can find information for local vaccine clinics. You can also: visit the NJ COVID-19 Vaccine Appointment Finder or contact the NJ Vaccine Call Center at 855-568-0545

    Thank you

  • Important Information About School Opening

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 8/19/2021

    Dear Families and Students:

     

    Welcome to the 2021-22 school year!

     

    We have been working diligently throughout the summer to prepare for our return.  In addition to our summer programs, many staff participated in curriculum review projects and professional learning activities.  Fall athletics are already in full swing and I am excited to share that our instructional program will be fully “in-person.” The school day will once again begin at 7:31 am and end at 2:31 pm. 

     

    That said, we are currently experiencing an uptick in COVID-19 and we will all need to do our part to keep everyone safe and healthy. The following common-sense actions are being taken:

     

    1. For the present time, all students, staff, and guests are required to wear face masks on buses and at all times when they are in the building.

    2. The district strongly encourages all eligible members of our community to be vaccinated. RBR is hosting a walk-in vaccine clinic on Friday, August 27 from 10:00 to 2:00 in the school cafeteria. We will be following CDC guidelines for minimizing virus transmission through contact tracing. Students who are not vaccinated may be excluded from all in-person programs during the quarantine period if they are exposed to the virus.
       
    3. Students will have a regular lunch period but additional areas in the building will be utilized to facilitate social distancing.  Finally, a “FAQ” will be sent out to the community before school begins outlining additional COVID-specific policies.  We will update this resource as the public health situation evolves and new information becomes available.

     

    Please follow these links for the  “Summer at a Glance” update and Principal Clark’s Welcome Back Message.  These documents provide important information about the start of school.  As always, do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

     

    Since the start of the pandemic, the entire RBR community has responded with courage, determination, and compassion to the crisis. I know we will all continue to do our part.  In the truest sense, our fortunes and interests are bound together.  Please accept my best wishes for a rewarding, productive, and safe school year.  

     

    Sincerely,


    Louis Moore
