Travel Quarantine has been reinstated as recommended by the CDC and the OCHD for unvaccinated staff/students.
For domestic travel the travel advisory has been lifted for most of the population in N.J. with the exception of unvaccinated staff/students who will need to be excluded from school since it is a community setting. Vaccinated students/staff (and those who have recovered from COVID within the past 30 days) can come back to school after domestic travel as long as they remain asymptomatic.
** Domestic travel is defined as lasting 24 hours or longer to states or US territories other than those connected to New Jersey, such as Pennsylvania, New York, and Delaware.
For International travel, Unvaccinated staff/students need to quarantine upon return. Vaccinated students/staff do not need to quarantine but we would highly recommend that they get tested 3-5 days after travel. But as long as they remain asymptomatic, they can return to school.
**Travel QUARANTINE IS STILL 7 DAYS WITH NEGATIVE TEST RESULTS COLLECTED AT 5-7 DAYS OR 10 DAYS WITHOUT TESTING.
Letters from the Superintendent
As another school year comes to a close, I cannot help but feel grateful for another successful year for both our students and staff. I congratulate you all on what you have achieved during this school year. I sincerely wish our 6th grade graduates much success as they continue their education at the Southern Regional School District. We will miss their energy, spirit and leadership.
This has been a difficult year for both students and staff. I am very proud of our staff for creating fun, educational virtual learning environments when it was necessary and also making the transition back to in person learning successful for all. Our students have proven to be resilient and adaptable to all of the changes that were thrown their way and I am very proud of them as well. I hope you all have a wonderful and safe summer.
George J. Chidiac
