Superintendent's Corner

March 24, 2021

Dear Piscataway Families:

We begin our Spring Break on Monday, March 29. I hope all our families will be able to enjoy this time together, get outdoors, catch up on movies, and relax after a long winter. There are a few important reminders I want to share with you regarding Spring Break and our return to hybrid instruction the following week:

Monday, April 5
Monday, April 5 is a fully virtual half day for all students and teachers. This change was made to the calendar in summer 2020, and allowed us to accommodate professional development days in the beginning of the school year.

Spring Break and NJ Quarantine Guidelines
Our state strongly discourages interstate travel at this time, even for those who are fully vaccinated. Those who must travel, should quarantine for 14 days following their return, monitor for symptoms, and contact their doctor for further guidance. For attendance purposes, parents of hybrid students are required to notify schools of any out of state travel.

Meal Distribution during Spring Break
During Spring Break, we will only distribute meals on Monday, March 29, when we will offer meals for seven days at our normal times and school distribution sites. There will be no meal distribution on Thursday, April 1.

April-May Hybrid Calendar
Our April-May Hybrid Calendar that delineates Group 1/Group 2 days is available on our website to assist our families in preparing their schedules.

Monday and Friday Early Dismissal and Office Hours
Following our return from Spring Break, we will maintain early dismissals with teacher office hours on Mondays and Fridays. We will continue to notify you of our plans in this area.

As always, please contact your building principals or me directly should you have any questions about our hybrid plan, or any other questions or concerns. I hope you have a good Spring Break, and our students return to school rested and ready to learn.

Sincerely,

Dr Frank Ranelli
