RBR will be Closed on Monday, January 3

Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 12/31/2021 11:59:00 AM

Dear Parents, Guardians, and Students,

 

As I am sure you are aware, both New Jersey and Monmouth County have experienced a severe uptick in virus transmission rates. 

 

In response, RBR will be using an emergency closure day on Monday, January 3, 2022 for planning purposes and to update our COVID-19 response procedures. 

 

This means the high school will be closed during the regular school day and there will not be in-person or remote instruction. This does not mean we are shifting toward remote instruction. We are simply using one of the closure days in our calendar to prepare. 

 

The administrative staff will utilize this time to review current procedures and share changes with all staff. Our lunch program, in particular, will be modified to reduce transmission risks. In addition, the closure will provide time for our health office to update records. Our goal remains to maintain in-person programs.

 

Athletic practices and games after school will proceed as planned on Monday, January 3. We will be open for in-person programs and the regular school day on Tuesday, January 4, 2022.

 

A few critical reminders:

  • Please report all COVID-19 cases over the break 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

  • 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.

  • At the present time, no changes have been made to the exclusion and quarantine guidelines we are using. Updates may be made once we receive clear guidance from state and county health departments and the NJ Department of Education.

All the best for a healthy and happy New Year and enjoy the rest of the break.

 

Sincerely,

Louis Moore
Superintendent
