Haddonfield School District issues operations update

Adjustments to 'new normal' taking place in district.

On Monday morning, the Haddonfield School District issued an email to all parents regarding updated plans for remote learning in light of New Jersey governor Phil Murphy’s edict from the weekend. 

In part, the message reads:

Here in Haddonfield, we will continue to provide the highest level of remote instruction possible, moving forward in compliance with Gov. Murphy’s latest directive.

In direct response to Governor Murphy’s message, we share the following important information with Haddonfield’s parents. 

  • A stay-at-home lifestyle and remote instruction are likely to continue well beyond the original estimate of two weeks.  We should plan to follow his directive until further notice and into the foreseeable future.
  • Beginning Monday, March 23, all school district buildings will be closed with these three exceptions:

o   Haddonfield students who want a free bag lunch may still come to the Chestnut Street entrance (“the flagpole doors”) of the Haddonfield Middle School between 11 a.m. and noon, Monday through Friday.

o   Our technology team will be responding through email and phone to requests for assistance Monday thru Friday from 7:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. We will make every effort to assist any student technical issue remotely. If a face-to-face meeting is required, an appointment can be set for Monday through Friday between 11 a.m. and noon at the middle school.  

o   The Board of Education building, closest to the Central school playground and PATCO tracks, will be manned with a skeleton staff from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. Monday through Friday.

  • As previously stated, as long as we are engaged in remote instruction, all athletics and extra-curriculars are cancelled.
  • Please keep in mind the borough’s state of emergency: borough and school district playgrounds, fields, and courts are all closed.
