On Thursday, Haddonfield School District Superintendent Chuck Klaus issued a release, stating that one grade within Central Elementary School would return to an all-virtual learning model, effective the following day, Jan. 15.
The move is expected to last for one week, through Friday, Jan. 22.
Klaus explained in the missive: “This decision was based in part on our analysis of COVID data, including 1 COVID+ case, two close contacts to a COVID+ student, two COVID+ family exposures, two quarantined teachers teaching virtually, and at least two other
students currently experiencing COVID-like symptoms and awaiting test results.
“Students in grade 5 will use the contingency plan listed on page 17 of the district’s ROAD BACK plan. Live sessions will be held at 9 a.m., 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. This decision was made in consultation with the Camden County Department of Health and our school physician.
“We anticipate our fifth-graders will return to in-person hybrid instruction on Monday, January 25th. Please note that this notification only impacts grade 5 at Central School.”
