Here are some back to school safety tips from the Franklin Lakes Police
Dear Franklin Lakes Community,
At his August 6, 2021 press conference, Governor Murphy announced that “all students, educators, staff, and visitors will be required to wear masks inside of school buildings--regardless of vaccination status--for the start of the 2021-2022 school year.” He also indicated that this masking requirement would be lifted as soon as conditions allow, and that the exceptions in place made last school year will remain in place. Finally, he reiterated that schools must open for full-time, in-person learning for the 2021-2022 school year. Please know that this is a mandate by the Governor’s office, not a local decision. For more information, see correspondence dated August 23, 2021, located on Superintendent's webpage, Health Updates/Covid-Related Policy Links.
For your information, the Franklin Lakes Safe Return Plan is below and we are including the following ThoughtExchange link to provide an opportunity for any questions/comments from our educational community. The ThoughtExchange will close for comment on Monday, June 21st at 3:00 p.m.
The plan for the 2021-2022 school year continues our current model of full day instruction, based on the current recommendations of the NJ Department of Health, and the NJ Department of Education. We anticipate Covid-19 safety protocols to be updated by the state towards the end of August, and will make any necessary changes accordingly. Thank you for your support in keeping our schools safe.
