All parents should monitor their child for fever and cough until March 27, and contact their health care provider should these symptoms develop.  


Important Reminders From Our Health Department:

  • All New Jersey residents must practice social distancing immediately.
    • That means: Stay home. Avoid non-essential trips, and maintain 6 feet distance between other people when you must go out.
  • This is not the time for sleepovers, play group, birthday parties, and congregating of any kind. 
  • Children in particular may exhibit very mild or no symptoms and still be able to spread the virus. 

The Hopewell Valley Regional School District is providing remote education until at least March 30. This date will be reevaluated in the coming days and we will communicate any changes by Monday, March 23.
