    Sept. 17, 2021 Covid-19 Guidelines Update Letter to Parents


    Sept. 13, 2021
    As a means of communicating information with our school community in a timely manner, the Cumberland Regional School District will be providing daily updates via our website regarding the number of students and staff members who have tested positive for Covid or are quarantining due to Covid exposure. Visitors to the Cumberland Regional School District website will see a notification regarding the number of CRHS students who have tested positive for Covid and the number of staff who have tested positive for Covid. 

    This will reduce the number of phone calls the general CRHS population receives from the school related to Covid updates, while keeping our school community informed on a daily basis. Our school nurses continue to stay in daily contact with the Cumberland County Department of Health, and any important information beyond these figures will be shared through direct notification via our Blackboard Connect automated notification system. Please note that parents/guardians of students who have been identified through contact tracing as a close contact with a positive Covid case will receive direct notification and guidance from the district. As always, please do not hesitate to contact us with questions or concerns. Thank you.


    Cumberland Regional High School is pleased to announce we will be utilizing the SchoolCafe by Primero Edge system for the 2021-2022 school year. Parents/guardians may use the SchoolCafe system to deposit funds into their student's account for food services, as well as to complete their free/reduced-price meal application online. Free/reduced-price meal applications also may be submitted via paper copies, available on our website, at CRHS via the Security Desk by the Main Office, or by contacting School Social Worker Laurie Athey.

    *Please note: Although breakfast and lunch meals will be provided to all students at no cost during the 2021-2022 school year regardless of free/reduced-price meal eligibility, IT IS CRITICAL THAT ALL CRHS FAMILIES SUBMIT A COMPLETED APPLICATION to ensure the district has accurate information for our student population.* Money deposited into student accounts can be used for purchasing snacks or beverages not included in meals provided.

    Dear Parents and Guardians:

    As the school year begins this fall, students in New Jersey will be fully returning to in-person learning. To ensure that your child and all New Jersey students are protected against COVID-19 once schools open, here are a few steps you and your family can take in the weeks ahead.

    Get your child vaccinated: Everyone 12 years-old and up is eligible for COVID-19 vaccinations. The FDA-authorized COVID-19 vaccines are safe and highly effective at preventing severe illness, hospitalization, and death due to COVID-19 and remain the leading way to protect your child, your family, and your community. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all eligible students be vaccinated as soon as possible. Vaccinations for 12 through 17-year-olds require 2 doses, so for the best possible protection against COVID-19 and the highly transmissible Delta variant, students should be scheduled for their first dose as early as possible.

    Get yourself and other household members vaccinated: Students are best protected when those around them are also protected – especially if they are under the age of 12 and cannot be vaccinated themselves. To protect yourself and your child ahead of the first day of school, please get vaccinated as soon as possible and encourage others in your household and community to get vaccinated as well.

    Vaccines are free for all, immigration status will not be asked, and health insurance is not required.

    Have those who are not vaccinated get tested for COVID-19: If your child cannot be vaccinated (<12 years old) or is not vaccinated, we encourage you to have them tested for COVID-19 before the start of school. This will reduce the risk of COVID-19 entering schools and disrupting students’ learning and, if done early enough, may allow for any period of isolation to be completed prior to the first day of school (if needed after a positive COVID-19 test result).

    Be sure to mask up: When students, teachers, staff, and families correctly and consistently wear masks they protect themselves and others. This is especially important as of late, given the more transmissible Delta variant. All students, staff, and visitors in K–12 schools will be required to wear masks, regardless of vaccination status, for the beginning of the 2021-2022 school year.

    Thank you for your help in supporting a safe return to school for our students in the fall!

    Aug. 9, 2021 Update:
    Dear CRHS School Community:

    On Friday, Aug. 6, Gov. Murphy announced that effective immediately, the New Jersey Department of Education will require all New Jersey K-12 school district employees, students, and visitors ages 2 and older to wear masks indoors at schools, regardless of vaccination status. Please be advised that the Cumberland Regional School District is enforcing this mandate as directed by the State, and face coverings are required to be worn by all staff/faculty/administrators, students, and visitors at Cumberland Regional High School and the Cumberland Regional Board Office at this time.

    As the delta variant of the COVID-19 virus continues to spread, the district reminds all members of our school community to utilize safety precautions and practices to reduce transmission risk:
    ·         Cover your mouth and nose with a properly fitting face mask when in public settings or around others. Always cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
    ·         Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, and/or clean your hands regularly with alcohol-based hand sanitizer.
    ·         Maintain at least six feet of distance between yourself and others whenever possible.
    ·         Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
    ·         Monitor your health, be alert for symptoms of illness, and stay home if you feel unwell.
    ·         Practice physical distancing by avoiding unnecessary travel and staying away from large groups of people.
    ·         Get vaccinated when eligible. Information on where to get a COVID-19 vaccine is available online at vaccines.gov

    We appreciate your continued patience, understanding, and support, and we thank you in advance for your cooperation as we work together to keep our school community safe and well. We will continue to update you with information related to the forthcoming school year as it becomes available.

    Should you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact my office at 856-451-9400, ext. 201.

    Sincerely,
    Dr. Scott Hoopes
    Interim Superintendent


    NJDOE LEA Plan for Safe Return to In-Person Instruction

    The district continues to prepare to reopen Cumberland Regional High School safely in fall 2021, with the following guidelines in place:

    1)      Universal and Correct Wearing of Masks

    At the end of the 2020-2021 school year, Cumberland Regional was requiring masks to be worn by all persons inside the school building. Procedures are in place to deal with students and staff who fail to wear the masks correctly. We will continue these practices if masks are recommended by the Department of Health, the Governor’s Office, and/or the Department of Education.

    2)      Physical Distancing

    Class sizes and number of students are being monitored to allow for social distancing. When that is not possible, we are utilizing larger instructional spaces. Lunches are the greatest concerns. Therefore, we have included an additional lunch period in our daily schedule to allow for social distancing. 

    3)      Handwashing and Respiratory Etiquette

    Effective handwashing is encouraged throughout our school for students and staff. Alcohol-based hand sanitizer has been made available throughout the building. While masks are required, respiratory etiquette is maintained. If masks become optional, etiquette will be reviewed with all persons in the building.

    4)      Cleaning and Maintaining Healthy Facilities

    Our entire ventilation system was upgraded in 2019. We also upgraded to stronger filters for our system. Most rooms are on their own filtration system. The building is deeply cleaned each night, which includes fogging. Doors, counters, tables, and most surfaces are cleaned multiple times per day. This all will continue during the 2021-2022 school year. 

    5)      Contact Tracing

    Our school is equipped with both a quarantine and an isolation room. They are supervised by our nurses. Our nurses also work with the county health department to complete all contact tracing. Impacted individuals are contacted immediately, and appropriate quarantining periods are enacted.

    6)      Diagnostic and Screening Testing

    All testing is done by outside agencies. Notification comes through our county health department. We stay in close contact with that department to expediate all results, and actions needed. We will continue this practice and procedure during the 2021-2022 school year.

    7)      Efforts to Provide Vaccinations

    Cumberland Regional has worked with our county health department and local health care partners to hold vaccination clinics here at the school for anyone interested in receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. We also share via email all opportunities for vaccines within our community. 

    8)      Appropriate Accommodations for Children with Disabilities with Respect to Health and Safety

    Our nurses, in consult with our child study team, have reviewed all students with disabilities with respect to health and safety to ensure safe delivery of instruction. We are working with families to determine the best course of action for the 2021-2022 school for safe delivery of instruction. We maintain an open line of communication with said families to ensure fidelity for both safety and instruction.


    Effective June 24, 2021, meetings of the Cumberland Regional School District Board of Education will be held in person in the Cumberland Regional School District Board Office, 65 Love Lane, at 6 p.m. 

    Effective Tuesday, Sept. 7, the district will be open 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. If planning to speak with a specific person, please contact them in advance to confirm their availability if possible. Labeled materials can be dropped off in the gray box outside the main entrance in front of the school at any time with a completed student item return sheet
