THE PLAN DEVELOPMENT 

AS PER THE ORDER FROM NJ GOVERNOR MURPHY, SCHOOL DISTRICTS ARE OPEN IN SOME CAPACITY FOR IN PERSON INSTRUCTION AND OPERATIONS. THE REOPENING OF SCHOOL INCLUDES THE NECESSARY LIMITATIONS TO PROTECT THE HEALTH AND SAFETY OF OUR STUDENTS AND STAFF. 

Our plan for reopening Garfield Public Schools prioritizes the safe return of all students and staff. We have designed a plan that implements the required guidelines provided by the New Jersey Department of Education, as detailed in the document, “THE ROAD BACK, RESTART AND RECOVERY PLAN FOR EDUCATION”.  

Our District Restart Team met regularly to provide input on how the plan to return to school would reflect the needs of our students and families in Garfield.  This team was comprised of the Superintendent, administrators, nursing supervisor, district physicianteachers, parents, students, and Board of Education members.  There were also several subcommittees that worked diligently to contribute to this plan and information was exchanged between all groups on a continuous basis until the final document was completed. 

The health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff has always been our priority, however, the Covid-19 pandemic has emphasized the importance of strong communication and the need to strictly adhere to the established protocols 

We are addressing every aspect of our operations to comply with all the recommendations in The Road Back document and which has been approved by the Department of Education.   The plan has been updated to include important components of Phase 2 which will begin on March 8thRoad Back plan revisions are on the district website. 

As we have all witnessed over the course of the last year, things change very quickly with this pandemic; therefore, our plan continues to be split into phases, which will allow us to re-evaluate the plan based on a better understanding of current data. Phase one took place from September 8th to March 5th; Phase 2 will begin on March 8th. As things continue to evolve, the plans will be updated, and you will be informed of all changes, revisions, and modifications in a timely manner.
