Message from the Superintendent: Positive Cases Notification 9/28/21

28 September 2021

Dear Parent(s)/Guardian(s):

This letter is to inform you that, today, we learned two (2) individuals of the T. Baldwin Demarest Elementary School have tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19). The Health Department has been notified.

The close contacts have been identified and notified. As a District, we respect the privacy of individuals who have tested positive, as well as those identified as close contacts. We ask that you do the same.

As a reminder, if your child develops one or more COVID-19 related symptoms, please do not send your child to school and contact your doctor, as well as the school nurse.  It is important to inform the school nurse if your child was tested for COVID-19, as well as to share the results. If you are awaiting testing results, please do not send your child to school until you receive the results. Please feel free to contact Ms. Borzone (TBD) at 201-664-7176 ext. 1104 / borzonen@nvnet.org or Ms. McCarthy (CDW) at 201-664-1475 ext. 2103 / mccarthy@nvnet.org.

We encourage parents/guardians and students to continue to follow the CDC-promoted safeguards, such as:

  • 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;
  • Limiting close contact with people who are sick and not sharing food, drinks, and utensils;
  • Practicing reasonable social distancing;
  • Wearing a face covering while in school; and
  • Continuing to monitor your health for symptoms.

You can continue to assist us by remaining vigilant and sensible in your approach to dealing with this public-health situation.

As always, we appreciate your support and cooperation.
