Are students required to wear a mask while at school?

On August 6, 2021, Governor Murphy announced that masks are required to be worn in the school building for K-12 students for the start of the 2021-22 school year regardless of vaccination status. Any changes to our mask policy will be promptly announced to the HPS school community.

How will the school ensure social distancing during in-person instruction?

Students and staff will maintain 3 feet of social distance to the extent possible while at school through classroom furniture placement and arranged seating. Plexiglas barriers will remain in place until further notice.

How will the school conduct health screenings?

Temperature and visual wellness checks will take place when students arrive at school each day. Checks will be conducted safely and respectfully by HPS staff. Students who have a temperature or show symptoms of illness will be further screened by the school nurse and may be sent home.

Students who experience illness while at school will be assessed and monitored by the HPS’ school nurse. If notified, parents will be required to transport their child home to rest, recover, and be referred to their primary care physician. Parents should notify the school nurse of any diagnosis by a physician.
