If you feel for any reason your child may have or has been exposed to the novel coronavirus, please contact your doctor immediately. Virus symptoms can range from mild to severe and could include fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Symptoms may appear in a few as two days or as long as 14 days after exposure.
ICST is in the process of determining what options we have for our students to continue learning while the school is closed, so please begin using the take home packets. If you don’t have one, call us at 609-394-3111.
We will remain in close contact with the Mercer County Office of Education and local public health officials throughout the duration of this closure and will provide updates to families as appropriate.
We encourage you to stay informed of the situation by regularly checking updates from Class Dojo and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
We understand this is a time of uncertainty and concern. We will work through this together to keep our students, families, and staff safe.
If you have health-related questions, please contact Mrs. Olivieri. If you have questions about our school, please contact Ms. Benford. Thank you for your cooperation and support.
