With the beginning of the school year only weeks away, our excitement continues to build as we diligently plan to welcome students and staff back to school in the safest, most practical way possible.  The first day of school for all students is September 9, 2021. While we understand that everyone wants to return to a “normal” environment, unfortunately, we are not there yet.  The most recent information on the COVID-19 virus and Delta variant warrants us to be especially mindful of health and safety protocols in place for the 2021-2022 school year. 

Our Reopening Plan outlines the Fort Lee Public Schools’ COVID protocols for the 2021-2022 school year.  We will continue to consult with the Fort Lee Health Department and rely on the recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC - www.cdc.gov), the New Jersey Department of Health (NJDOH - www.nj.gov/health), the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE - www.nj.gov/education) and the American Academy of Pediatrics to make adjustments to our plan as needed.   

Please note that our plan may fluctuate along a continuum with a fully normal school environment on one end of the continuum, followed by a minimally restrictive, moderately restrictive, and most restrictive environment at the opposite end of the continuum.  A fully normal school environment represents what we experienced prior to the COVID-19 health emergency.  The most restrictive environment represents a fully remote instructional model.  A moderately restrictive environment would include a hybrid instructional model, with all of the health and safety protocols we implemented last school year.  The Reopening Plan we are putting forward reflects a minimally restrictive environment.  At this point, our plan is to provide full-day, full-time, in-person instruction and operations with the implementation of safety measures that incorporate the most current COVID-19 health guidance.  This plan remains fluid and the protocols listed below are subject to change at any time as a result of new information received from State and local health departments and the New Jersey Department of Education.
