6th Grade Class Quarantined at Guttenberg’s Anna Klein School Following Positive COVID Tests

Guttenberg parents have been informed by Superintendent of Schools Michelle Rosenberg that several individuals in the 6th grade at Anna L. Klein School have tested positive for COVID-19.  In a letter dated yesterday, November 11, 2021, Rosenberg wrote, “As per the local health department and CDC guidelines, due to the fact that students in this grade are not yet vaccinated and were in close contact with these individuals by intermingling between classes and lunch, it is necessary to quarantine the entire 6th grade class, with the exception of the special education self-contained classrooms.”

Superintendent Rosenberg goes on the write, “Students in close contact must begin their quarantine immediately and report any COVID-19-like symptoms to the school, if they should occur.”

While in quarantine children from the 6th grade class are expected to attend school remotely from home. They must promptly log in to homeroom at 8:20 a.m.  Attendance will be taken.

Parents and guardians have two options:

They must quarantine their child. If they have their child tested on Sunday, November 14 or Monday, November 15 and the child produces a negative test result, they must complete their quarantine through Tuesday, but may return to school if they have NO symptoms on Wednesday, November 17.

If a parent or guardian does not wish to test their child, they must then keep the child at home in quarantine for at least 10 days from the date of exposure. They may then return to school, only if they have no COVID-related symptoms on Wednesday, November 24.

Free testing is available in Braddock Park in North Bergen.  The administration is trying to arrange for a testing site outside the Anna L. Klein School on Sunday or Monday.  Parents are advised to check ALKschool.org for updates.
