BRHS COVID Closing - 11/18/2020

Dear Parents/Guardians and Staff: 

This letter is to inform you that over the course of this week, two individuals have tested positive for Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID 19) at Bridgewater-Raritan High School. As per the New Jersey Department of Health Guidance, a school building should be closed for 14 days when two or more cases are identified within a 14-day period that occurs across multiple classrooms and a clear connection between the cases cannot be easily identified. Unfortunately, our most recent cases meet this criterion.

After working with the local and state health department officials to analyze the facts and circumstances of these cases, we have decided to move all students at Bridgewater-Raritan High School to all remote instruction for 14 days effective Wednesday, November 18, 2020.

In addition, all athletic and extracurricular activities are canceled for the same duration.

All other district schools will remain open as normal.

We understand the level of concern regarding COVID-19. We encourage parents, students, and staff to continue following the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) promoted safeguards, such as:

  • Staying home when you are sick;
  • Washing hands often with soap for at least 20 seconds;
  • Covering coughs and sneezes and properly disposing of tissues;
  • Limiting close contact with people who are sick and not sharing food, drinks and utensils;
  • Practicing social distancing (staying at least 6 feet apart);
  • Wearing a face covering while in school; and
  • Continuing to monitor your health for symptoms. 

As always, we appreciate our community’s support and cooperation.  You can assist us by remaining vigilant, but sensible, in your approach to dealing with this health concern. We ask that parents rely on the school officials for accurate information about COVID-19.  Should you have any questions about this situation, please feel free to contact your child’s building principal. Below are some resources that may be helpful.
