COVID Protocol

Mask Update 3-4-22

Beginning March 7, masks will be optional for all faculty, staff, students, and visitors. The CDC and NJDOH continue to recommend masks and those individuals who choose to wear them will be able to do so. MSDA will continue to monitor the rate of transmission in our community, and reserves the right to require masks for all if cases rise dramatically. 

As an important reminder to help ensure the health and safety of others: if an individual is not feeling well, stay home and get tested.

For those who test positive for COVID-19:

  • At least 5 full days of isolation for all.

  • If asymptomatic or symptoms have significantly improved, the individual may return to school on day 6. A mask must be worn at all times except when eating lunch for another 5 days after returning to school.

  • Students may participate in sports and extracurricular activities as long as they wear a mask at all times.

  • If masks cannot be worn around others at all times, or if the individual remains symptomatic, they must continue to isolate for a full 10 days.

  • A doctor’s note is required for all students who are returning to sports. The note must state that the student is cleared for sports, not just school.

  • Communication with Mrs. Froysland regarding return to school is imperative.

Updated vaccination records should be on file. Send updated cards to our School Nurse Jennifer Froysland at
