After conferring with the 34 school districts that send students to the Eden School in regards to upcoming closures, we will be closed for a minimum of two weeks due to the coronavirus beginning Monday, March 16.
We realize that this will create a significant challenge to each of our families.
On Monday and Tuesday, March 16 and 17, staff will report to the school to develop the in-home learning plans referenced in our previous email for the period in which the school is closed.
You will be hearing from school staff this coming week to review plans for your child during this time. We apologize for the short notice of the school closure and the challenge it will present to you and your family.
Adult Day Program:
The New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) has issued the below directive to adult service providers, including Eden last evening.
Eden’s adult day program will be open at all facilities on Monday, March 16, with the closure beginning on Tuesday, March 17.
Management and staff are actively engaged in working out the details of how we will put this directive into effect in the best interests of our adult participants, their families, and staff.
Additional information will be shared with families and staff as soon as we have finalized the logistics associated with this evolving situation.
Should you have missed DDD’s communication to families and other stakeholders, we have provided it below.
If you have any questions, please contact Bridgette Connolly, firstname.lastname@example.org, or Edyta Zak-Burns, email@example.com.
