HARBOR SCHOOL COVID OPERATIONAL PLAN JULY 6, 2020
In response to Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 149, Harbor School will operate a “combination” ESY program this summer based out of it’s building on 240 Broad Street in Eatontown, NJ. The combination of services will include: 1) a continuation of remote learning through our Virtual Home Learning Plan (see Appendix) that has been in place since March 16, 2020, 2) in-person instruction at Harbor School in Eatontown, and 3) both virtual and in-person instruction over the course of the six-week summer program. For those families that choose to send their students back to school in-person, in cooperation with the sending district, we will implement our COVID Operational Plan to ensure to the maximum extent possible a school environment that is safe and healthy and embraces the best practices as established by the Local Health Department, the NJ Department on Health, the CDC and the Department of Education.
If students and their families, in collaboration with the IEP team, including the sending district, do determine that it is in the student’s best interest to return to in-person during ESY 2020, the Harbor School administration will evaluate whether there are specific students who are at increased risk of transmitting COVID-19, or unable to follow the established guidelines contained herein, and develop plans for them to continue to work or receive educational and related services virtually in a remote setting.
This plan will include written policies and procedures for each specific area and domain as delineated in the DOE recommended guidelines - New Jersey COVID-19 Youth Summer Camp Standards.
