    MASK UPDATEThis afternoon (1/11/22), New Jersey Governor Murphy reinstated a Public Health Emergency effective immediately. The Public Health Emergency allows Executive Order 251 which mandates masking in the indoor premises of all public, private, and parochial preschool, elementary, and secondary school buildings, with limited exceptions to remain in effect.  The Public Health Emergency will expire after 30 days, unless renewed.  State COVID-19 metrics will be re-evaluated at the time of expiration to determine if an extension will be needed.

    School Safety and TikTok Threats - December 17, 2021  To all our families,   We are aware of these social media posts and are closely monitoring the situation. To be clear, we have NOT had any threats made against our school system. Our students have NOT reported any threats.  Law enforcement is fully aware of the situation and has determined that this is not a credible threat to our safety, but they will provide added protection around our schools tomorrow to eliminate any possible disruption. 

Margate Reopening Plan


    The New Jersey Department of Health’s (NJDOH) most recent guidance (1/10/22) regarding isolation, exclusion, and close contacts is outlined below. This is the guidance that the school nurses follow when advising guardians of isolation and quarantine timeframes. If you have questions or concerns regarding the guidance outlined below, please contact your child's school nurse. When it mentions testing, it is referring to rapid Antigen or PCR tests only (not over the counter home tests). These may change without advance notice, so we appreciate your understanding.

    Exclusion: Parents should not send students to school when sick. For school settings, NJDOH recommends that students with the following symptoms be excluded from school:

    • At least two of the following symptoms: fever 100.4 or higher, chills, rigors (shivers), myalgia (muscle aches), headache, sore throat, nausea or vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue, congestion or runny nose; OR
    • At least one of the following symptoms: severe cough, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, new olfactory disorder, new taste disorder. For students with chronic illness, only new symptoms, or symptoms worse than baseline, should be used to fulfill symptom-based exclusion criteria.

    Persons who test POSITIVE for COVID-19 and are symptomatic or persons WITH COVID-19 SYMPTOMS who weren’t tested or who are waiting for test results:

    • Stay home and isolate from other people for at least 5 full days (day 0 is the first day of symptoms).
    • If symptoms resolve (fever-free for 24 hours and other symptoms improve), isolation can end after 5 full days (i.e., on day 6).
    • If symptoms persist (fever or if other symptoms have not improved), continue to isolate until fever-free for 24 hours and other symptoms have improved.

    Persons who test POSITIVE for COVID-19 but have NO SYMPTOMS

    • Stay home and isolate from other people for at least 5 full days (day 0 is the day of the positive viral test).
    • If no symptoms develop, isolation can end after 5 full days (i.e., on day 6).
    • If symptoms develop within one week of the positive test, the 5-day isolation period starts over with day 0 being the first day of symptoms.
    • Follow recommendations for ending isolation for persons who have COVID-19 symptoms.

    Additional precautions during/after ISOLATION (everyone):

    • MASK: Continue to wear a well-fitted mask when around others at home and in public through day 10. For those ending isolation on day 5, this would be during days 6 through 10. Persons who are unable to wear a mask when around others should stay home and isolate from other people for a full 10 days.
    • TRAVEL: Avoid travel until a full 10 days after your first day of symptoms or if asymptomatic, after the date of the positive test. If travel is necessary on days 6-10, wear a well-fitting mask when around others for the entire duration of travel. Persons unable to wear a mask should not travel during the 10 days.
    • AVOID HIGH-RISK ACTIVITIES: Avoid people who are immunocompromised or at high risk for severe disease, including nursing homes and other high-risk settings; do not go to places where you are unable to wear a mask, such as restaurants and some gyms, and avoid eating around others at home and at work until a full 10 days.

    Exposed CLOSE CONTACTS who have no COVID-19 symptoms and are NOT FULLY VACCINATED*:

    • Stay home and away from other people for at least 5 days (day 0 through day 5) after the last close contact with a person who has COVID-19. The date of the exposure is considered day 0.
    • If COVID-19 symptoms develop, get tested and follow isolation recommendations.
    • If asymptomatic, get tested at least 5 days after the last close contact
      • If the test is positive, follow isolation recommendations.
      • If the test is negative, you can end quarantine after day 5.
      • If testing is not available, you can end quarantine after day 5 (as long as there were no COVID-19 symptoms throughout the 5-day period).

    Exposed CLOSE CONTACTS who have no COVID-19 symptoms and are FULLY VACCINATED/BOOSTED*:

    • Do not need to quarantine or be excluded from school.
    • Should be tested 5-7 days following an exposure to someone with COVID-19, if possible.
    • Should still monitor for symptoms of COVID-19 for 14 days following an exposure.
    • Should wear a mask in other indoor public settings for 14 days or until they receive a negative test result.

    Exposed CLOSE CONTACTS who have no COVID-19 symptoms and have BEEN DIAGNOSED with COVID-19 in the past 90 days:

    • Do not need to quarantine or be excluded from school
    • Should not be tested for COVID-19 but should still monitor for symptoms for 14 days following exposure. If any close contact experiences symptoms (regardless of vaccination status), they should isolate themselves from others, be clinically evaluated for COVID-19, including SARS-CoV-2 testing, and inform their health care provider of their vaccination status at the time of presentation to care.

    *Definition of FULLY VACCINATED* for those who do NOT need to quarantine from a close contact situation:

    • Persons ≥ 12 years old who completed a primary series of COVID-19 vaccine AND have received all recommended vaccine doses, including eligible boosters and additional primary shots for some immunocompromised people. (To allow time for students to catch up with the latest recommendations and to minimize disruption to in-person learning, schools may wait until February 1, 2022 to implement school exclusion for students ages 12-17 years who completed their primary vaccine series but have not yet received all eligible boosters.)
    • Children 5-11 years old who completed the primary series of COVID-19 vaccine.
    • Persons who have confirmed COVID-19 within the last 90 days (positive viral test).

    2021-2022 SCHOOL YEAR

    • All students will be back for full-time, in-person instruction for the 2021-2022 school year.
    • All students, educators, staff, and visitors will be required to wear face masks inside of school buildings, regardless of vaccination status, for the start of the 2021-2022 academic year.
    • Parents or guardians will not be able to opt children out of in-person instruction as allowed for the 2020-2021 school year.

    Indoor Mask Requirement - All students, educators, staff, and visitors will be required to wear face masks indoors for the start of the 2021-2022 school year. Effective Monday, August 9, 2021, masks are required in the indoor premises of all public, private, and parochial preschool, elementary, and secondary school buildings, with limited exceptions, outlined below.  This mandate is required as per Executive Order 251.

    Exceptions to the mask requirement remain unchanged from the 2020-2021 school year, and include:

    • When doing so would inhibit the individual's health, such as when the individual is exposed to extreme heat indoors;
    • When the individual has trouble breathing, is unconscious, incapacitated, or otherwise unable to remove a face covering without assistance;
    • When a student's documented medical condition or disability, as reflected in an Individualized Education Program (IEP) or Educational Plan pursuant to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, precludes use of a face covering;
    • When the individual is under two (2) years of age;
    • When an individual is engaged in an activity that cannot be performed while wearing a mask, such as eating and drinking or playing an instrument that would be obstructed by the face covering;
    • When the individual is engaged in high-intensity aerobic or anerobic activity;
    • When a student is participating in high-intensity physical activities during a physical education class in a well-ventilated location and able to maintain a physical distance of six feet from all other individuals; or
    • When wearing a face covering creates an unsafe condition in which to operate equipment or execute a task.

    Are there mask exemptions and how does a child qualify?

    Last Updated: 08/27/21

    Students who have a documented medical condition or disability preventing them from wearing a face mask must provide a written doctor’s note as per Executive Order 253. The doctor’s note will be reviewed by our school physician for approval. Once approval from the school physician is received, the school district will convene a 504 or IEP meeting to ensure the medical condition or disability are part of the student’s 504 Plan or IEP.  Please see document below for general guidance. 

    Mask exemption considerations

    Are there travel restrictions to or from New Jersey?

    As of May 17, 2021, New Jersey's travel advisory is no longer in effect.

    The CDC, however, has recommendations for both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers. Travelers leaving New Jersey should check with the travel destination and transportation carrier (i.e., airline, cruise ship, etc.) to see if there are additional health and safety protocols or requirements, such as proof of a negative COVID-19 test within days of departure. Travelers should also check with their employers, schools, and other entities that may have quarantine policies for individuals returning from travel.
