District Remediation Update from the Superintendent
As individual classrooms receive clearance, students and staff will return to their assigned classrooms. The building principals will notify parents and staff accordingly.
District personnel in conjunction with remediation contractors have been working feverishly, including late nights, seven days a week to address the identified concerns. The district has been corresponding with the Ocean County Health Department, the New Jersey Department of Health, the New Jersey Department of Education, and the school district’s physician in an effort to receive guidance throughout this process. They have assured the district that we are following the appropriate protocol and are going above and beyond what is expected. We will continue to keep the district open because we are fortunate to have alternative classrooms to accommodate relocation within each building. We are currently updating the district’s preventative maintenance plan to help avoid this problem in the future. We will also continue with inspections from our hygienist on a periodic basis.
We will be holding another parent meeting on Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at 6:45pm at the Stafford Township Art Center, 1000 McKinley Avenue, Manahawkin, New Jersey 08050.
Thank you for your continued support.
