    2021-2022 HTE Plan for Safe Return to In-Person
    Instruction & Continuity of Learning >>

    NEW! Please read the UPDATED GUIDANCE ON ISOLATION AND QUARATINE 1/10/22
    If this information changes your current quarantine status, please give the district time to contact you with the changes. The district is currently checking the quarantine status of our students, but there is a large number, so this may take time. Please do not flood the health office with questions as we will contact each family after looking over each individual case.
    Thank you for your patience and support! 

    The CDC and New Jersey Department Of Health (DOH) have revised their general guidance on isolation and quarantine:

    If you tested positive for COVID-19 (regardless of vaccination status):

    • You should stay home and isolate yourself for 5 days.

    • If you have no symptoms or your symptoms are resolving after 5 days, you can leave your house but should continue to wear a mask around others for 5 additional days.

    • If you have a fever, continue to stay home until your fever resolves.

    • Lunch- Per CDC recommendation, students who are still considered high risk of transition (until the 10 days are up) will eat lunch in a smaller group setting. Students will be spaced out so they can take have their masks off, ensuring everyone's safety

    • Avoid travel

    • Avoid being around people who are high risk

    If you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have received all recommended COVID-19 vaccine doses (received a booster dose, completed the two-dose series of Pfizer or Moderna within the last 5 months, or have received your single shot of J&J vaccine within the last 2 months):

    • You do not need to be quarantined but you should wear a well-fitted mask around others for 10 days.

    • If symptoms occur, you should immediately isolate until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.

    • You should also be tested 5 days after your exposure if possible. If the test is positive for COVID-19, you should isolate for 5 days from the date of the positive test result.

    • Avoid travel

    • Avoid being around people who are high risk

    If you have been exposed to COVID-19 and have NOT received all recommended COVID-19 vaccine doses (unvaccinated, are more than 5 months out from your second Pfizer or Moderna dose, or more than 2 months out from your J&J vaccine dose):

    • You should stay home and quarantine for 5 days, and continue to wear a well-fitted mask around others for 5 additional days.

    • If symptoms occur, you should immediately isolate until a negative test confirms symptoms are not attributable to COVID-19.

    • You should also be tested 5 days after your exposure, if possible. If the test is positive for COVID-19, you should isolate for 5 days from the date of the positive test result.

    • Lunch- Per CDC recommendation, students who are still considered high risk of transition (until the 10 days are up) will eat lunch in a smaller group setting. Students will be spaced out so they can take have their masks off, ensuring everyone's safety

    • Avoid travel
