Dear Parents,

As you look forward to school holidays and consider travel options, please remember that the CDC recommends delaying travel until after a student is fully vaccinated.

Vaccines could soon be available for children between the ages of five and eleven. This option would allow our schools to operate with fewer disruptions and fewer mandatory quarantines. However, preliminary information indicates that it would take a full five weeks for a child to be considered fully vaccinated after their first shot. It's unlikely that the vaccine for children age 11 and younger will be available in time to alleviate the need for travel quarantines in the short term. We urge you to plan accordingly.

Please remember:

  • If your unvaccinated child travels outside of New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania or Delaware for 24 hours or longer, you child will need to quarantine for 7 days (with testing) or 10 days (without testing).
  • During travel quarantines, PPS will provide schoolwork through Canvas, written packets, and asynchronous learning opportunities but there will not be the option of participating through real-time classroom Zoom sessions.

For further information, please see:
