Critical Update Nov. 30th

Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 11/30/2020

Dear RBR Families and Students,

 

These are challenging times for sure and I know our rapid pivot to full remote today was frustrating.  In addition to staffing issues today, we are also faced with the fact that transmissions have increased in our community, especially in Shrewsbury and Red Bank.  Because of today’s circumstances, I asked the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission and the NJ Regional Epidemiology team to review previous recommendations that we resume in-person programs.  Their previous recommendation stands: We can resume in-person programs tomorrow, December 1 with appropriate safe practices in place.

 

It is critical that we continue to observe health and safety protocols.  These include:

 

  1. Implementation of exclusion and quarantine guidelines.  Let our health office/nurses office know immediately of any exposure to COVID-19, positive test results for COVID-19, or the appearance of symptoms for anyone in your family.
  2. Continued close adherence to protocols and procedures at school, especially wearing masks and practicing social distancing.
  3. Following the Centers for Disease Control Prevention safeguards:
    • Staying home when you are sick;
    • Washing hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds;
    • Covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues;
    • Practicing social distancing;
    • Wearing masks;
    • Continuing to monitor your health for symptoms.

 

Sincerely,

 

Louis Moore
