Student Attendance, Travel & Requests for Hybrid or Full Virtual Learning

  • Please review carefully the following regarding student attendance and requests for hybrid or full virtual learning:

    Attendance Requirement for In-Person Learning Students:

    • Students who are enrolled in hybrid learning are expected to participate in person on the days their cohort meets.
    • Any student who is scheduled to be in person and stays home for any reason other than failing the daily symptom tracker or who is under authorized quarantine, will be marked absent whether they attend virtually or not. Students may participate virtually, however, they will be marked absent because they were expected to be in school that day.
    • We will not grant requests to be “virtual for the day or week.” If you want your student to be virtual for any period of time, your student must be enrolled as a full virtual student and cannot return unless it is formally requested and approved. 
    • Students who fail the symptom tracker must stay home and must communicate with the school nurse. Nurse Russenberger’s contact information is: krussenberger@tenafly.k12.nj.us and 201-816-4937.
    • If you have any questions about quarantining, please contact the school nurse and Mrs. Saxenian lsaxenian@tenafly.k12.nj.us.

    Students who Travel:  

    • Parents must report all student travel to the school nurse.

Students will be placed into the full-virtual program during their quarantine. To switch enrollment back to in-person learning, see the form below under Switching Enrollment from Virtual to Hybrid.
    • A negative Covid-19 test does not replace the required 14 day quarantine period.
