School Reopening Masks and Questionnaire

School Reopening Masks and Questionnaire
Posted on 09/24/2020

September 24,  2020

Hello Fort Lee Families,

As we move closer to the start of in-person instruction in the district, there is some important information to share. 

1. On the days that their children will be attending in-person in the schools, all parents/guardians will be required to review and submit a daily health screening questionnaire for their children. Parents must attest that their children are symptom free and in compliance with all quarantine requirements. This form may be submitted using the genesis parent portal from any computer or mobile phone that has internet access. Please review these instructions at the end of this letter.

If the parents do not submit the questionnaire, the students will not be allowed to participate in any school activities until the parent is contacted. 

2. All students and school staff are required to wear masks while on school property. Each student will receive 1 reusable, washable mask from the school. A positive step may be to have your child “practice” wearing a mask before returning to school so they may be more accustomed to it. Only appropriate masks will be acceptable. Certain types of mask are not as effective in preventing the spread of particles. The “gaiter”,  bandana type, and masks with ventilators are not appropriate.


If a student is not able to wear a mask due to a documented medical condition, please contact the school Principal and school nurse. 

Aftercare will be available through “Club Ed”. Please contact them directly through the information on the district’s  website. ([email protected] or 201-837-9090 Ext. 240).

As always, if you have questions regarding your child’s class activities or schedule, please contact the teacher or the school Principal. You can also contact your school Principal for technology assistance and support as well.  


Thank you for your ongoing support and patience as we continue to work through this “new” September. 


Stay safe and healthy. 


Kenneth Rota

Superintendent of Schools
