News

This morning, we learned that a Hunterdon Central employee has tested positive for COVID-19. We wanted to alert the community, even though this employee's last contact with any staff or students was beyond the incubation period reported by the Department of Health, and it is very unlikely that a new case will develop specifically from exposure to this person. Please continue reading for more information.

On Thursday, Governor Murphy announced that he would not reassess the current school closure until Friday, April 17. Following his lead, we will remain closed and engaged in remote instruction through Thursday, April 9. Spring Break will begin on Friday, April 10, and will run through Friday, April 17, when we hope that we will receive more news from the Governor's Office. During Spring Break, there will be no online instruction for students.

Hunterdon Central had planned to reassess our closure on Wednesday, March 25, with hopes of reopening next Monday, March 30. However, with Governor Murphy's recent orders about school closure and social distancing, we must now follow his lead.

Freshman Physicals:

New Jersey State law requires that each student must be examined at their medical home (family doctor) upon entry into a school district. Therefore, Hunterdon Central requires a physical examination for all Grade 9 students, as well as new students in any grade level. In addition, one physical per year is required for students participating in athletics. Please note that a sports physical will fulfill the requirement for a freshman physical or a new student physical.

The Pre-Participation Physical Evaluation Form must be used for all Grade 9, new student and athletic physicals. Forms can be downloaded and printed from this webpage; please click on the link Health Forms. Forms can also be picked up in Health Offices, or can be mailed to student homes, upon request.

Grade 9 and new student physicals must be turned into Health Offices by September 30, 2020. PLEASE NOTE: any students who have not submitted a Grade 9/new student physical to Health Offices by the due date will not be allowed to return to school until the physical has been completed and submitted.

Information on athletic form due dates and procedures can be found on the Athletic Webpage.

If you have any questions about student physicals, please call the 9/10 Health Office: 908-284-7304.
