Virtual Instruction: April 12-16

Therefore, the Nutley Public Schools will be 100% virtual for instruction the week following Spring break, April 12 – 16, 2021, to mitigate the transmission of COVID due to the anticipated travel of staff and families over break.

Spring Break Travel

Travelers other than to New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, and Delaware, should quarantine for a full 7 days after travel, with testing occurring 3-5 days after the trip. The district will provide testing for any student who has traveled and wishes to be tested on Wednesday, April 14, 2021. Please register by Wednesday, April 7 at: . If you chose not to have your traveling child tested, he/she should quarantine for 10 days, post travel. If you have questions, please contact

Increased In-Person Instruction: Elementary Students

On Monday, April 19, 2021, our PK-6 students who have selected the in-person learning option, will return to the buildings 5 mornings per week at the same entry and dismissal times.

Middle and High School Students

While the Governor’s office, CDC, and Departments of Health support our current in-person instruction, and plans for increased PK-6, we are not able to move to five days in grades 7-12 until after these cases and transmission rates become lower. Our secondary students, those in grades 7-12 will remain in their current cohorts until further notice. Those who have chosen to switch to in-person instruction may attend in-person on the current cohort schedule beginning Monday, April 19, 2021.

When the regional risk level has decreased below Orange (see the following risk matrix), the secondary cohorts will be combined to provide more frequent in-person instruction for those who have made that selection, as per the most current CDC guidance.

Grab and Go Meals

Grab and Go meals will continue to be provided at dismissal. Community meal distribution for any resident child under the age of 18 will continue at Nutley High School on Wednesday April 7 and Wednesday April 14.

Your building principal will be in touch with more details. You will be contacted regarding programs and activities scheduled during the week of April 12.
