  • Bus Mask Update

    Posted by Mary Judge on 3/1/2022 11:30:00 AM

    You may have heard the news that the CDC no longer requires masks on school buses and yesterday, I received word from the NJDOE that they will also not be requiring masks on school buses.  Effective Monday, March 7th, masks will be optional on all of our district transportation for students and staff.  

    Additionally, after consulting with the Local Health Department, JTPS will no longer require any student or staff member to quarantine after travel outside of the immediate area.

    I am happy to announce these two additional steps as we move toward a more typical school year.  We will continue to follow the guidelines from the NJDOH in consultation with the Local Health Department and make adjustments to our Covid-19 protocols and procedures as we are able.

  • HIPPA & FERPA Facts

    During the February 22nd Board of Education meeting, there were many questions about the application of the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) law to public schools. I am sharing the following information to assist in better understanding the difference between the HIPAA and Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) federal laws.
