- Water Update:  May 11, 2017 6:45 AM -

Due to the district’s follow through on the approved plan of action put into place, we are pleased to inform the community that the latest water test results revealed that the water is in compliance, once again.  The district has been given permission by the Department of Environmental Protection to remove all postings of advisories from the building, including the water fountains.

We appreciate your support throughout the entire process. Please note that Quinton Township School will no longer be providing water bottles for the students, as the water fountains are operational once again. Students may be permitted to continue to bring SEALED water bottles to school, if they choose to do so for the remainder of the 2016-17 school year, as long as the water bottles are used properly and class disruptions do not arise.

- Water Update:  April 19, 2017 2:35 PM -

The Quinton Township School District has been working with the licensed operator to formulate a corrective action plan, which includes an additional chlorination of the water system.  The chlorination of the water system will be conducted this coming Friday afternoon after dismissal and continue throughout the weekend. 

An additional water sampling will take place on May 1, 2017.  Once the results have been received the situation will be reevaluated.  Please know that we continue to take the necessary steps to ensure that our water system will meet compliance requirements. 

Students are requested to continue to bring in sealed water bottles to school each day until the results have been received and reviewed by the state. Once again, for students who are unable to bring their own bottled water, the district will provide bottled water on an as needed basis.

The district will continue to keep you updated with the water situation and the alternate corrective action plan, if such becomes necessary. The alternate plan may include a permanent chlorination system being installed on a future date.

***************************************************************************************************

- Water Update: 4/5/2017 Time: 2:00 PM -

With regard to the water system, students are to continue to bring sealed bottled water to school each day.  Once again, for students who are unable to bring their own bottled water, the district will provide bottled water on an as needed basis.

The Salem County Health Department Official arrived in district once again today and met with our superintendent, after conversing with State NJDEP and our compliance manager.  Unfortunately, our approved corrective action plan did not resolve the issue, for the Salem County Health Official verified that the latest water samples, taken on April 3, 2017 tested positive for Total Coliform and one of the samples tested positive for E coli bacteria.

Once again, the Quinton Township School District has been directed to continue with the prior approved actions and procedures that have been in motion with regard to restricting consumption of the water, but permitting hand washing.

Please note that although our cafeteria staff has been advised by the NJDEP/SC Health Department as to how to safely proceed with meal preparation until this issue has been resolved, which could include boiling the water prior to use, we continue to use bottled water for any food preparation.

Again, please see our website for the official drinking water warning notice (WORD DOC BELOW), which has been updated and posted in all water locations throughout the building.  Lastly, for anyone who is interested in learning more about the drinking water warnings, our school nurse, Mrs. Sherry Biddle, provided a presentation to our parents and students during the month of March, which has also been posted on our website for your review. (See below.)

 At this time, further investigation and corrective action plans will be developed and submitted to the NJDEP for State approval. 

Again, thank you for your cooperation and we will continue to provide more information as it becomes available.

The system will be flushed after the chlorination is completed and additional water testing is scheduled to take place on the following Friday, March 31, 2017.

Students are requested to continue to bring in sealed water bottles to school each day until the results have been received and reviewed by the state. Once again, for students who are unable to bring their own bottled water, the district will provide bottled water on an as needed basis.

Thank you for your cooperation and we will continue to provide more information as it becomes available.

Additionally, the Salem County Health Department Official met with and advised our cafeteria staff how to safely proceed with meal preparation until this issue has been resolved.

SCHOOL PERFORMANCE REPORT AND PARENTAL SURVEY INFORMATION

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Since the 2011-12 school year, New Jersey’s School Performance Reports have provided communities with information on school-wide academic achievement, demographics and school climate. The School Performance Reports were developed with, and are continually improved by, the feedback from stakeholders like you.

 

The New Jersey Department of Education is again encouraging your input on a statewide survey designed to improve the readability and usability of these reports.

Please access the brief online survey to describe if and how you use the reports, what data is most important to you when looking at school performance, and how the data can be presented in a usable, understandable manner.

 

The survey should take less than 10 minutes, and responses will not be tracked or identified individually. We also invite you to check New Jersey’s School Performance Reports online to view the latest reports. Thank you for your interest in helping New Jersey improve our School Performance Reports.
