*** A Message from our School Nurses ***

Oct 6, 2021
Dear Parents/Guardians:

The Health Office has seen an uptick of students being sent to school not feeling well. As a result, the number of students being sent for COVID-19 testing has increased. Therefore, this increases the risk of exposure to other students and staff should the student be COVID positive.

If your child complains of a sore throat, headache, congestion or any other signs/symptoms please do not send them to school. Let's try to control what we can control. Unfortunately, we are in different times. We can no longer send our children to school with "the sniffles."

In addition, if your child is sent home with COVID-19 like symptoms and you are asked to be tested, please do not send your child to school without being cleared by the health office. This just requires a copy of the results to be sent to the Health Office prior to your child returning to class. The nurses can be reached by email at or ecarr@haledon.orq or by fax at 973-790-1429.

Furthermore, with regard to travel, both domestic and international, please read the following:

The CDC recommends that travel be delayed for those who are not fully vaccinated. If travel cannot be delayed, domestic and international travelers who are not fully vaccinated should get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel, even if they test
negative. If testing is not completed post-travel, individuals should self-quarantine for 10 days. International travelers who are fully vaccinated should also get tested with a viral test 3-5 days after travel, self-monitor for symptoms, and isolate and get tested if symptoms develop. For those traveling to/from New Jersey, domestic travel is defined as lasting 24 hours or longer to states or U.S. territories other than those connected to New Jersey, such as Pennsylvania, New York, and Delaware. }
We will make it through this difficult time by working together.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

Chief School Administrator, Mr. Christopher Wacha

Mr. Wacha
Wildcat Community:
We know that this is the most unique and perhaps the most challenging year in the history of New Jersey Public Education.  The Covid-19 pandemic has absolutely changed all aspects of society, and it has indeed altered the traditional structure of instruction at the Haledon Public School.
          We have invested heavily in safety protocols and prioritized safety planning so that the Wildcat staff and students that enter the building will be in as safe an environment as possible.  We have also embraced a totally new style of instruction. We will be live-streaming our lessons so that the students at home are able to see, hear, and communicate with our teachers in real-time.  We know that this is a style of instruction that we have never before delivered, and we know that we will hit bumps in the road along the way.  The great news is that we also know that our students, our staff, and our parents will all get a bit more familiar with this each and every day.  I am proud of the efforts of our staff, excited about the enthusiasm we have seen from students, and grateful for the support our community has shown us as we transition into this uncharted educational journey.  Go Wildcats!
