COVID-19 Resources

Cranford Public Schools are working tirelessly to keep our students and staff healthy. Thank you to all the parents / guardians for joining us in that effort. Please continue to keep a student home when they are ill, keep unvaccinated siblings home if a household member exhibits COVID-19 like symptoms or is awaiting a COVID-19 test result. Also follow the guidelines outlined in the Monthly COVID-19 Symptoms Awareness Sign Off. 

 

Please remind children to: 

* Wash their hands frequently

* Cover coughs and sneezes with their elbows 

 

Currently there is no travel advisory in place for New Jersey, however the CDC strongly recommends unvaccinated travelers get tested with a viral test 3 - 5 days after travel AND stay home and self-quarantine for a full 7 days after travel. Vaccinated travelers should be tested 3 - 5 days after return and should self monitor for symptoms.
