The Department of Health has informed us that contact tracing for the HVCHS COVID case has been completed. Individuals in two different schools have been identified as a close contact (defined as contact within six feet for a cumulative total of 15 minutes or more in 24 hours) and have been quarantined. Close contacts are occurring outside of school; please support our efforts to contain the virus by encouraging your children to social distance and wear a mask whenever they are with non-family members. Following our district protocols, we have completed our deep cleaning process and HVCHS is ready to reopen for students and staff on Wednesday, October 28, 2020.
I would like to acknowledge the Hopewell Township and Montgomery Township Departments of Health for their guidance and support during this most recent issue.
As a reminder, please continue to adhere to the following guidelines:
Parents of all in-person students MUST complete the daily symptom form in OnCourse or on the HVRSD app. We will continue to temperature screen students each morning.
Failure to complete the daily screening will result in exclusion from school.
If your child has any COVID symptoms, do not send him/her to school.
If your child exhibits COVID symptoms while at school, he/she will be excluded for 10 days, unless cleared by a physician.
Practice social distancing (staying at least 6 feet apart) at all times - including bus stops and playgrounds;
Wear a mask while on school property - including playgrounds after school;
If your child has COVID symptoms, please contact your doctor and school nurse*.
If your family is quarantining due to possible exposure, please inform your school nurse*. *All information is confidential.
