Public Schools update

OFFICIAL from Haddonfield School District on March 23, 2020

On Saturday, March 21, New Jersey’s Governor Murphy announced a statewide “stay at home” order as of 9pm that evening.

This revised order prohibits all gatherings and directs the closure of “all non-essential retail businesses to the public,” with some exceptions. Here is the video of his announcement.

Here in Haddonfield, we will continue to provide the highest level of remote instruction possible, moving forward in compliance with Gov. Murphy’s latest directive.

In direct response to Governor Murphy’s message, we share the following important information with Haddonfield’s parents.

  • A stay-at-home lifestyle and remote instruction are likely to continue well beyond the original estimate of two weeks. We should plan to follow his directive until further notice and into the foreseeable future.
  • Beginning Monday, March 23, all school district buildings will be closed with these three exceptions:
  • Haddonfield students in need of a free bag lunch may still come to the Chestnut Street entrance (“the flagpole doors”) of the Haddonfield Middle School between 11am and noon, Monday through Friday.
  • Our technology team will be responding through email and phone to requests for assistance Monday thru Friday from 7am through 5pm. We will make every effort to assist any student technical issue remotely. If a face-to-face meeting is required, an appointment can be set for Monday through Friday between 11am and noon at the Middle School. See details for contact information below.*
  • The Board of Education building, closest to the Central school playground and PATCO tracks, will be manned with a skeleton staff from 9am to 2pm Monday through Friday.

As previously stated, as long as we are engaged in remote instruction, all athletics and extracurriculars are cancelled.

Please keep in mind the borough’s state of emergency: borough and school district playgrounds, fields, and courts are all closed.

Although we are working from home, we are committed to supporting you and our students. Teachers, EAs, principals, technology staff, counselors, nurses and others are available when you need assistance.

  • Your teachers have shared their office hours with you.
  • Our principals are a great resource for information:
  • To reach our technology department*, please email them at [email protected]. Provide your phone number in case a conversation is required. Someone will reply between 7am and 5pm Monday through Friday. If a face-to-face meeting is required, they will make those arrangements.
  • Please help us to communicate effectively. Check texts, voicemail, and email regularly. If you use social media, follow your school’s accounts and the district’s:
    • Twitter: @HaddonSchools
    • Facebook: @HaddonfieldSchoolDistrict

Finally, remember that we are all in this together.
