In the link below, please find the Restart and Recovery Plan to Reopen Schools which includes important information on a number of topics relevant to September-- including health & safety, the virtual learning option, transportation protocols and athletic activities. Should you have questions or concerns please contact the principal of your child's school and he or she will be able to address your inquiry directly or put you in touch with someone who can. I want to specifically thank the Restart committee for their assistance in reviewing and improving this monumental undertaking. Additionally, please be aware that the Board of Education, upon further review, may also adjust some of the contentOur timeline has been tight and we share this now in order to inform the community of our direction. 

The delivery of this Plan completes our official releases as, along with the Reopening Plan posted July 30, the community now has continuing access to all the moving parts of what each of our eight schools will offer in less than a month's time. We look forward to working with all our stakeholders in order to create an optimum learning (and safe) environment. 

As shared previously, the Governor could change all of this without warning, or medical developments-- positive or otherwise-- could also affect the educational experience of your children. To that end, we will be prepared to pivot in the moment and adjust to any newly arriving circumstances in order to maximize the safety, good health and learning experience for both students and staff in the Hazlet school district.
