School Plan for Emergency Closing - Revision 1


Coronavirus Update
March 27, 2020


Little Ferry Families,

We continue to move forward with education and help contain the COVID-19. We are looking forward to connecting our Primary Grade students in the next week with the distribution of Chromebooks by next week.

While we have not been informed of any COVID-19 infection among our students and staff by any health department, we are aware that Little Ferry continues to record presumptive positive cases of COVID-19 on a daily basis, as well as Bergen County. It is therefore probably just a matter of time before we learn that some of our school district population has the virus. We hope that our proactive closing of the schools has helped to limit the spread of the infection. Please understand that due to HIPPA and other privacy laws we will not be able to share specific information with you in the event we do learn of any officially confirmed cases among our school community. Any notifications will be handled by the local health department. In accordance with state laws, we expect the health department will perform a disease investigation to identify where the individual lives and close contacts who may be at additional risk and recent places of travel. When close contacts are identified, they are notified by the health department and asked to self quarantine for a period of up to 14 days. Should individuals develop symptoms during the 14 days or receive a confirmed laboratory report for COVID-19, they must contact their local health department.

Due to the evolving nature of information, residents are encouraged to contact the 24/7 NJ COVID-19 Call Center at 1-800-222-1222 or 1-800-962-1253 if calling from a non-NJ cell phone for the most up to date information. New Jersey residents can also call NJ 211 with questions or concerns about COVID-19 by calling 2-1-1. NJ 211 is New Jersey’s statewide
comprehensive information and referral service operated by United Way of New Jersey. Residents can also text NJCOVID to 898-211 to receive text information and stay informed. To receive live text assistance, residents can text their zip code to 898-211. Residents can also call the Bergen County Health and Safety Hotline at (201) 225-7000.


Sincerely,

 Mr. Frank R. Scarafile

Superintendent of Schools
