CommUNITY  Update: Re: School Closure Update

Today we were notified by the Governor’s Office that all schools in New Jersey will remain closed until at least Friday, May 15th. Governor Murphy went on to say, “We need to be guided by where the facts on the ground, science, and public health take us. That means it will not be safe to reopen our schools for at least another four weeks.”

CommUNITY  Update: Re: Specials Schedules & School Closure Update

Earlier this week, the governor shared that he will not revisit school closures until April 17th, at the earliest. He has made it clear that the decision to reopen schools will be based on careful discussions with educators and public health professionals. Unity Charter School will remain closed until that time. We will monitor what is happening, assess cautiously what is in the best interest of all our stakeholders, and communicate proactively any information or decisions that are made.

COVID-19: Information for Communities and the General Public

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in people and many different species of animals. COVID-19 (“coronavirus disease 2019”) is the disease caused by a novel (new) coronavirus that was first detected in humans in Wuhan, China in December 2019.
At this time, most people in the United States will have little immediate risk of exposure to this virus. This virus is NOT currently spreading widely in the United States.

Steps you can take to prevent spread of flu and the common cold will also help prevent coronavirus:

  • Wash hands often with soap and water. If not available, use hand sanitizer.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • Avoid contact with people who are sick
  • Stay home while you are sick and avoid contact with others
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or sleeve when coughing or sneezing

Currently there are no vaccines available to prevent novel coronavirus infections.

Stay home when you are sick. Earned Sick Leave is the law in New Jersey.

As of October 2018, employers of all sizes must provide full-time, part-time, and temporary employees with up to 40 hours of earned sick leave per year so they can care for themselves or a loved one.
