Community Update - November 25, 2020

November 25, 2020

Dear Paramus Community,

Throughout this school year, our approach to designing, implementing, and adjusting our learning models has remained consistent in its prioritization of health and safety above all else. As a community, we have come together in our adherence to the enhanced health and safety protocols that have allowed our school buildings to remain safe places for our staff and in-person students to participate in the learning process. While we have needed to implement COVID-19 related quarantines of student and staff groups (you may view data related to these quarantines on the district’s new ​COVID-19 Quarantine Dashboard​), our number of confirmed in-school transmissions of COVID-19 remains at ​zero​.

However, based on the criteria established by the New Jersey Department of Health, there are situations beyond the control of individual school districts that may compel those districts to implement full-remote learning for all students. As you are aware, our region, like much of the state, is currently considered high risk for COVID-19 transmission according to the most recent COVID-19 activity level report​, and the case rate (number of cases per 100,000 people) and percent positivity (percentage of total positive COVID-19 tests out of all COVID-19 test performed) continue to steadily increase at an exponential rate. As I have mentioned numerous times since this trend of weekly significant increases began in October, these region-wide and state-wide numbers have a direct correlation to the increasing likelihood of individual school districts needing to transition to full-remote learning models due to local community spread of COVID-19. Indeed, in its ​COVID-19 guidelines for public schools​, the New Jersey Department of Health identifies “very high risk of community transmission” as the highest level in a ​hierarchy of school closure scenarios​ that require quarantines and/or school/district closures.
