  • FEMA Resources Available to Families

    The below information should help families adversely affected by Hurricane Ida. 

     

    For New Jersey residents living in Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic, and Somerset Counties, individuals can apply for assistance through FEMA the following ways:

     

    • The fastest and easiest way to apply is by visiting disasterassistance.gov/ or by downloading the FEMA App on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.

    • If it is not possible to apply online, call 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585). The toll-free telephone lines operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. CDT, seven days a week. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their specific number assigned to that service.

     

    New Jersey residents who live outside the affected counties are encouraged to continue reporting damage (residential structures only, no vehicles) from Ida as damage assessments are ongoing. Information collected in this portal will help local, state, and federal authorities better understand the location and severity of damage impacts. The NJOEM Public Damage Reporting portal is located at https://damagenj-njoem.hub.arcgis.com/.

  • Excessive Heat Mask Exemption and Chromebooks

    Tuesday, September 7, 2021

    Good evening,
     
    With regard to the excessive heat exemption for masks, we will be using an outdoor temperature of 80 degrees Fahrenheit as our cutoff value so that a single approach can be in place throughout the district in all locations for the reason of consistency.  We will be using the temperature as predicted on weather.com.  Whenever possible, we will be seeking to make a decision for the entire upcoming week.  With that being said, there may be single "outlier" days for which we need to put the exemption into place or put the mask requirement back in for that day.  In those cases, that decision will be communicated districtwide the evening before.  Please know that, when the exemption is in effect, masks will be optional in an attempt to respect individual comfort levels.  On those days when the exemption is in place, masks still need to be brought to school in case they are needed.
     
    This daily information will be posted to the district website (www.clarkschools.org) under the "News and Announcements" section towards the bottom of the page.  Kindly look there beginning later in the day tomorrow (Wednesday the 8th) for an update regarding this Thursday and Friday.
     
    In terms of student one-to-one Chromebooks, devices should be fully charged and brought to school each day as students will be using these devices for school-related work both in and outside of school (e.g., in-class assignments, homework assignments, lab reports, and assessments). 

    As always, thank you for your cooperation.  Looking forward to a great first day with our students on Thursday.
