MES & SPS Plan Reopening
Merchantville School's Re-opening Committee is working to develop a plan for the 2020-2021 school year. The committee includes representatives from the administration, Board of Education, teachers, nurses, parents, police and Borough Council. A survey was sent to parents and guardians to complete for each child they have attending Merchantville School. 257 responses were received. Survey results will provide the committee with information to drive decision making about guidelines and procedures to be presented to the Board of Education at the end of July as the final re-opening plan. The Re-opening Committee is using guidance from the NJDOE's "The Road Back: Restart and Recovery Plan for Education" to ensure the best solutions for our students and staff. St. Peter School intends on opening on Tuesday, September 8th unless directed otherwise by the Diocese of Camden or the State of New Jersey. They are developing several home based solutions for those families who are either uncomfortable with their children returning to school, have children with underlying medical issues, or for other reasons will need to remain home for either the entirety of the school year or parts of the school year. Their Little Saints Preschool will open the week of September 8th, with specific dates TBD.
