Ewing Schools Community Release: Update to Return to School Plan

IMMEDIATE RELEASE

January 2, 2022    1:00PM

As we return to school tomorrow, Monday, January 3rd, this difficult stage of the pandemic continues to present significant health, staffing and operational challenges.  

As a result, we have made the following adjustment for this week: 

All district schools will be operating on an early dismissal schedule for this week, from Monday, January 3rd to Friday, January 7th. 

If any family at the elementary level has a child-care hardship, we will offer a supervised, non-instructional “wrap-around” program from dismissal until 4:00PM.  Please notify the main office of your child’s school by 10:00AM if you would like them to be a part of this program.  

Both morning and afternoon Extended Day Program (EDP) will run this week at the elementary schools as long as no staffing issues arise. 

No lunch will be served at Fisher Middle School, the O’Brien Academy (OBA) and Ewing High School.  Lunch will be served at the elementary schools-emphasizing safe, physically distancing practices. 

Teaching staff will be available for “virtual office hours” after the end of the “in-person” day to provide support and assistance for students, but there will be no virtual classroom responsibilities for students.   

Please keep in mind that we may experience transportation challenges throughout the week.  Please monitor our communication portals.  

Transportation will be provided for Ewing High School students who participate in the Vo-Tech program which will be operating on a full day schedule this week. 

Please again review our district release from Friday regarding proper school public health protocols. 

The early dismissal schedule for each school/program is below. 

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.
