The COVID-19 situation is evolving quickly and it’s important that the Ocean City School District gives accurate information and factual steps that we are taking as a School District.
Ocean City School District administrative team have participated in conference calls with the Governor, the Commissioner of Education and the New Jersey Department of Health.
In addition, our district administrators have met with the City of Ocean City and the Office of Emergency Management. The Cape May Superintendents met with the County Education Office and the County Health Department regarding COVID-19.
We have been instructed to follow the guidelines of the Cape May County Health Department, who follows the advice, guidelines and directives from both the CDC and the New Jersey Department of Health.
We discussed the evolving COVID-19 situation, specifically what to do if a district is ordered to close by the County Health Department.
The custodial staff continues to do deep, extensive cleanings of all of our schools. The district also utilizes top of the line cleaning and sanitizing protocols including:
- In addition to regular custodial cleaning, all high touch areas are being cleaned with EPA approved disinfectant chemicals on a daily basis
- Clorox Total 360 Machines are deployed in each school and are being utilized daily
- Odorox units are in service in the nurses’ offices and wellness rooms
- Bathrooms are being disinfected daily
- Clorox Disinfecting Wipes have been distributed in classrooms throughout the District. These were provided in the event staff would like them available to supplement the cleaning plan already in place by our custodial staff.
