AMS Families, Hybrid Instruction returns on Monday, March 1, 2021. Group A students will attend in-person classes on Mondays and Tuesdays (Remote W-F). Group B students will attend in-person classes on Thursdays and Fridays (Remote M-W). Group C (Fully Remote) students will continue remotely with no change to their schedule. Student Arrival and Dismissal: The opening bell will ring at 7:40 am. It is at this time that students will enter the building. Dismissal is at 12:15 pm. Students are not permitted to stay after school and should not arrive before 7:35 am. Students should be dropped off at the designated locations in the front parking lot. We ask that you do not park and walk your child to the entry doors in the morning and please do not wait at the doors for dismissal. 6th grade students will enter Door #2 in the morning and exit Door #2 in the afternoon. 7th grade students will enter Door #3 in the morning and exit Door #3 in the afternoon. 8th grade students will enter Door #4 in the morning and exit Door #4 in the afternoon. Staff members will be at these doors assisting students. It is strongly recommended that you set up a routine for dismissal. Attendance Line: If your child is going to be absent from school a parent/guardian must call the 24-hour Attendance Line at (732) 596-4210. Please make certain to state your child’s name, grade, and reason for absence, please speak slowly and clearly. Please report it by 7:30 AM. COVID-19 Attestation Form/Face Masks: Each morning that your child is to attend school in-person, there is an attestation form that you MUST complete in Genesis. This form must be completed prior to 7:40 AM. The form is currently available for you to complete daily. We ask that you begin to create the habit of completing this form, if you have not already started. As per Dr. Zega, if a student reports to school 3 times without filling out the attestation form, they will be moved to the fully remote group. Students will be required to wear a face mask while in school, not a shield or gaiter. Two masks are encouraged, one to wear and one as a backup. School Issued Devices: 8th grade students are required to bring their charged iPads to school on in-person days. 6th and 7th grade students are required to bring their charged Chromebooks to school on in-person days. If an in-person 6th or 7th grade student has not yet been issued a Chromebook, they will receive it during the Week of 3/1/21. Students are not permitted to bring personal devices. Food Services: Lunch will be distributed at dismissal along with a breakfast for the next day in a plastic bag at the assigned dismissal doors. Meal distribution for those in-person students will be a grab and go process and should be eaten at home, not on the bus or along the way home. Meals will be distributed to all students as they exit the building. All students are currently eligible for meals. Locker Regulations/PE: Students will NOT be given a hallway or physical education locker this year. Students will participate in physical activities in gym classes. Students will NOT be changing their clothes and MUST be dressed appropriately (clothing and sneakers) on days they have gym. Backpacks: Students are encouraged to carry backpacks this year. Water: Students are permitted to carry a water bottle during the school day. Glass is not permitted. Students can ONLY bring water, no other drinks are permitted. Transportation: Bus information has been updated in Genesis. Students should arrive at their morning bus stop at least 10 minutes prior to the listed pick-up time. AMS Daily Hybrid Schedule: Opening Bell – 7:40 AM Block 1 - 7:45 AM - 8:45 AM Block 2 - 8:55 AM - 9:55 AM Block 3 - 10:05 AM - 11:05 AM Block 4 - 11:15 AM - 12:15 PM *No Office Hours on Wednesdays PM Office Hours Block 1 - 1:10 - 1:30 PM Block 2 - 1:30 - 1:50 PM Block 3 - 1:50 - 2:10 PM Block 4 - 2:10 - 2:30 PM Thank you for your continued support, as we return to our hybrid schedule.

AMS Families, Per Dr. Zega's letter, all WTSD schools - including Avenel Middle School will be fully remote until Tuesday, January 19, 2021. There will be no changes to our current schedule. Although we wish we could be in the building together, we will continue to provide the best possible remote instruction. As we begin Marking Period 2, we strongly encourage you to require that your child show their face during live lessons. Students are more likely to be engaged in the lesson that is being delivered and less likely to be distracted when fully participating. Students are expected to be on time and stay for the entire period each school day. Students are expected to turn in assignments on time and in accordance with teacher guidelines. I am so proud of our students and the entire AMS community. As always, thank you for your continued support and cooperation during these challenging times. Be safe and stay #avenelstrong. Joseph A. Short Principal, Avenel Middle School

November 9, 2020 Dear Avenel Middle School Families: As you know, today, November 9, 2020, has been a fully remote instructional day so we can assess our staff to determine if hybrid instruction is possible moving forward. After careful consideration, we have determined that we have a large number of staff who will need to quarantine due to close contact or due to travel. As a result, we will not be able to offer hybrid instruction until at least Monday, November 23rd. The need to quarantine for those individuals is a must. Please keep in mind that symptoms can occur for a period of 14 days after contact with an infected individual. Regardless of having a Negative Covid-19 test result, the individual must still quarantine. Our teachers will continue to provide fully remote instruction. The date listed above is an anticipated date. However, should conditions change, we will be sending more information as we receive it. Those families who are participating in the meal distribution program will still be able to pick up those meals at any school. We ask that in turn our families continue to monitor their children daily for symptoms of the virus, as well as keeping the school informed in the event symptoms develop within your household. We will continue to work as a community to ensure that continuity of remote instruction is provided during this difficult time for all. Our district will also continue to apply the best practices and recommendations of the Woodbridge Health Department in school events that bring our community together, helping to ensure the safety of all. Be safe and stay #avenelstrong. Joseph A. Short Principal, Avenel Middle School

WTSD Travel Guidance Domestic Travel: During the COVID-19 Pandemic, a fourteen (14)-day quarantine travel advisory announced by the Governors of New Jersey, New York and Connecticut, is in effect until further notice. Individuals traveling to or returning to New Jersey from states with increasing rates of COVID-19 are advised to self- quarantine for 14 days. This includes travel by train, bus, car, plane and any other method of transportation. The 14-day quarantine travel advisory applies to travel from certain states identified as those that have a positive COVID-19 test rate higher than 10 per 100,000 residents or have a ten percent (10%) or higher positivity rate over a seven-day rolling average ("impacted states"). This advisory is updated regularly by the State of New Jersey, and may be found at the following link: https://covid19.nj.gov/faqs/nj-information/travel-and-transportation/which-states-are-on-the-travel- advisory-list-are-there-travel-restrictions-to-or-from-new-jersey Foreign Travel: In addition, any person that has traveled outside of the United States, and has traveled to any country that is considered on the international list of countries that are Level 3-High Risk, must also quarantine for 14 days prior to entering the school building. Again, please check the most up-to-date list before traveling. https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/map-and-travel-notices.html Travelers and residents returning from impacted states or countries should self-quarantine at their home. Individuals should only leave the place of self-quarantine to seek medical care/treatment or to obtain food and other essential items. Exclusion from School Buildings During Quarantine: The Woodbridge Board of Education in an effort to keep our school and community COVID free and safe will require ALL STUDENT(S) AND STAFF MEMBERS who have traveled to any state, territory, or country that has been listed on the state/territory advisory list or the Level 3 High Risk International List to quarantine for fourteen (14) calendar days prior to entering any Woodbridge Township School District building. Please note that this also includes traveling to any of these locations during scheduled school district breaks and vacations. If any student, parent/guardian, or staff member chooses to travel to a state or country that is on the advisory list at the time of travel, they will be expected to quarantine for 14 days upon their return. Please also note that these lists are fluid and are changed daily, and these changes must be adhered to. This is for the safety of our entire community. Truth and honesty is expected for the health and wellness of our staff, students, and their families. Students: Parents/guardians MUST make arrangements for their child(ren) to continue school for the 14 days of quarantine as REMOTE ONLY. The students will not be permitted into school during this time. If the child attends their classes REMOTELY, these days will not count against their absences. However, if the student misses remote instruction during a vacation or subsequent quarantine, these days will count as unexcused absences.

AMS Families, Phase 2 Hybrid Instruction begins on Monday, October 12, 2020. Group A students will attend in-person classes on Mondays and Tuesdays (Remote W-F). Group B students will attend in-person classes on Thursdays and Fridays (Remote M-W). Group C (Fully Remote) students will continue remotely with no change to their schedule. Student Arrival and Dismissal: The opening bell will ring at 7:40 am. It is at this time that students will enter the building. Dismissal is at 12:15 pm. Students are not permitted to stay after school and should not arrive before 7:35 am. Students should be dropped off at the designated locations in the front parking lot. We ask that you do not park and walk your child to the entry doors in the morning and please do not wait at the doors for dismissal. 6th grade students will enter Door #2 in the morning and exit Door #2 in the afternoon. 7th grade students will enter Door #3 in the morning and exit Door #3 in the afternoon. 8th grade students will enter Door #4 in the morning and exit Door #4 in the afternoon. It is strongly recommended that you set up a routine for dismissal. Attendance Line: If your child is going to be absent from school a parent/guardian must call the 24-hour Attendance Line at (732) 596-4210. Please make certain to state your child’s name, grade, and reason for absence, please speak slowly and clearly. Please report it by 7:30 AM. Covid Attestation Form/Face Masks: Each morning that your child is to attend school there is an attestation form that you MUST complete in Genesis. This form must be completed prior to 7:40 AM. The form is currently available for you to complete daily, if you do not complete it by 7:25 AM a reminder email/text will be sent to you. We ask that you begin to create the habit of completing this form, if you have not already started. If a student reports to school 3 times without filling out the attestation form, they will be moved to the fully remote group. Students will be required to wear a face mask while in school, not a shield or gaiter. Two masks are encouraged, one to wear and one as a backup. School Issued Devices: 8th grade students are required to bring their iPads to school on in-person days. 6th and 7th grade students are required to bring their Chromebooks to school on in-person days. If an in-person 6th or 7th grade student has not yet been issued a Chromebook, they will receive it during the Week of 10/12/20. Students will no longer be permitted to bring personal devices. Food Services: Lunch will be distributed at dismissal along with a breakfast for the next day in a paper bag at the assigned dismissal doors. Meal distribution for those in-person will be a grab and go process and should be eaten at home, not on the bus or along the way home. Meals will be distributed as students exit the building. All students are currently eligible for meals. Locker Regulations/PE: Students will NOT be given a hallway or physical education locker this year. Students will participate in physical activities in gym classes. Students will NOT be changing their clothes and MUST be dressed appropriately (clothing and sneakers) to participate on days they have gym. Backpacks: Students will be encouraged to carry backpacks this year. Water: Students are permitted to carry a water bottle during the school day. Glass is not permitted.

AMS Families, -Beginning on Monday, October 5th students will no longer have to log their daily attendance using the Google links on the AMS website. Student daily attendance will be logged in Genesis by the Block 1 teachers. Any updates on daily attendance should be emailed to our attendance secretaries: kelly.henry@woodbridge.k12.nj.us and maryann.miller@woodbridge.k12.nj.us -Beginning on Monday, October 5th parents/guardians of Group A and Group B students will be required to complete and submit the daily Covid-19 attestation each morning by 7:40 AM in the Genesis Parent Portal. This will allow you to familiarize yourself with the process and allow us to monitor compliance during the week, in preparation for in-person instruction. -Beginning on Monday, October 12th you will only be required to complete the attestation on days that your child is physically attending school, no later than 7:40 AM. If a student reports to school without a completed attestation, they will be screened and miss class time. If a student has a fever, they will remain isolated until a parent/guardian arrives. Please check to make sure all of your emergency contacts are up to date in Genesis. -A Message from Guidance Counselor, Ms. Wronski: To celebrate next week’s Week of Respect, students will be visiting Ms. Wronski’s Google site each day to complete the daily activities. There will be a daily activity, along with a short reflection question via Google Forms. Please encourage your child to participate in these activities. There will be prompts for them to wear different color clothing to signify each day of the week. We look forward to a great virtual Week of Respect this year!

AMS Families, We continue preparing for the transition to Phase 2 of the Woodbridge Township School District Re-entry Plan, which will take place on Monday, October 12, 2020. The AMS faculty and staff have been working hard to ensure that we are providing a quality virtual instructional experience for your child. Please carefully review the information below: - The confirmation email was sent earlier this month, in regards to each child’s assigned cohort grouping. - Today, September 28th and continuing through Friday, October 9th ALL instructional days will be fully remote with live instruction. There will be NO asynchronous days for these two weeks. - Monday, October 12th begins the first day of in-person instruction and the start of Phase 2 of the WTSD Re-entry Plan, students in Group A will attend school on Monday/Tuesday and students in Group B will attend school on Thursday/Friday. All students will attend school virtually on Wednesdays. The teaching schedule and block times will not differ from what you have been doing thus far. Office hours will begin each day at 12:50 PM, virtually. - Remember students are required to attend each course daily and remain present for the duration of the time the course meets. - Beginning on Monday, October 12th parents/guardians are required to complete and submit the Daily Covid-19 Questionnaire in the Genesis Parent Portal (THIS IS ONLY REQUIRED ON DAYS THAT YOUR CHILD IS PHYSICALLY ATTENDING SCHOOL). The purpose of this form is to attest that your child is safe to enter the building each day, it is important that all parents familiarize themselves with this tool. - As we look forward to students returning to AMS, it is important to remain vigilant in maintaining social distance, wearing a mask while indoors, and washing/sanitizing hands. Thank you. Be safe and stay #avenelstrong. Joseph A. Short Principal, Avenel Middle School joseph.short@woodbridge.k12.nj.us Twitter handle - @avenelmiddle

AMS Parents and Guardians, Please see the opening day updates below, as of 9/2/20: 1.) The first day of school (fully remote) is tomorrow, Thursday, September 3, 2020. 2.) Parents /guardians will NOT be posting daily attendance in Genesis. 3.) Students will log their daily attendance each school day by 7:45 AM. Students will navigate to the Avenel Middle School homepage and scroll to the bottom of the page, click on their grade level attendance link and complete the google form using their (@wtsdnj) account. If you need assistance, please contact our Attendance Secretary, Ms. Henry: kelly.henry@woodbridge.k12.nj.us (732) 596-4210 Here is a link to the AMS Website: https://www.woodbridge.k12.nj.us/o/ams 4.) Teachers will be posting class attendance in Genesis each school day. 5.) Friday, September 4th will be a live video conference day for students. 6.) Students should only join the Google Classrooms of their current classes. 7.) It is important that you discuss with your child/children the following expectations during live lessons each school day. Student Expectations for Zoom/Meet Sessions: Students will … • Use their WTSD Google account for Zoom/Meet. • Be expected to be present on camera and audio and participate in all daily lessons/instruction. • Be on time for meetings and have a fully charged device (or device will be plugged in). • Respect that learning is happening here. Be kind and polite! • Not record or take pictures of the meetings. • Not share any Meet/Zoom link with anyone. • Not post or stream video meetings to any social media accounts. • Use the chat feature to communicate with the teacher. • Use earbuds or headphones for meetings, if the learning environment is not a quiet one. • Establish learning areas within their home. These areas will have all the materials needed for their instructional school day. This area also will be quiet and free from unnecessary distractions. Please try and stay in one area for the duration of the meeting times. Teachers will work with parents to help, as not everyone has distraction-free zones. • Join the meeting independently (without other family members or others/pets) unless the teacher invites specific guests to a meeting, or the student needs help logging/signing on. • Come dressed appropriately for the day. • Be removed from the meeting if the behavior is inappropriate and disciplinary action may be taken if needed. • Be expected to do the work themselves. If a student is struggling the teacher and guidance counselor should be notified and extra help will be offered. • Follow all school rules and policies Parent/Guardian Understandings for Zoom/Meet Sessions: In order to establish a learning environment that is aligned to the in-person learning environments at school, all parents and guardians are asked to observe the following guidelines that support the best interests of our students and teachers: • No one should record or take pictures of meetings. • No one should share any Zoom or Meet link with anyone. • No one should post or stream any meetings on social media. •Meet/Zoom meetings are an extension of the classroom. Students should be dressed appropriately. • Only the students in the class interact with the teacher during instructional time. • Parents understand that when students are in a breakout session, they may not be monitored by the teacher and students will be held responsible for any inappropriate behaviors. • Depending on the student’s age level, parents may need to be involved in the set-up of the meeting or available for technical assistance, but parents should not be actively involved in the meeting. • All classroom and school rules are to be followed. • Attendance will be taken on Zoom/Meet by the teachers and posted to Genesis as class attendance. Cameras should be on in order for students to be marked present and students must participate for full credit. We look forward to the start of perhaps the most unique school year yet. As always, thank YOU for your patience, support and understanding as we begin the 2020–2021 school year. I look forward to an amazing year that we will all remember as we work as a team and as one unit, staff, students and families, to ensure that we get our students on track and learning! Be safe and stay #avenelstrong. Joseph A. Short Principal, Avenel Middle School joseph.short@woodbridge.k12.nj.us
