Dear Parents:

With the advent of the Coronavirus affecting an increasing number of people in the world, and the introduction of several cases in various states in our own country, the staff and administration of Lakeview Learning Center feel we must address this situation immediately.  While we are continually monitoring the alerts from The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the New Jersey Department of Health, and the New Jersey Department of Education, we ask that you, as parents, take proactive and  preventative action as well in order to prevent, and or limit, the spread of this virus into our communities.  There is much that you can do to help counteract this potentially deadly disease.

Preventative and Proactive Actions that Students, Families, and Staff can do:


  • Get a flu shot.
  • Keep your child home if he or she is ill.  If a fever is present, (100 degrees or higher) students, as well as staff, are required to remain at home for at least 24 hours after they are fever free, and without taking any medication.  If your child was ill during night with fever, vomiting, and/or diarrhea, he or she must not return to school until 24 hours after these symptoms have ceased.  If your child complains of abdominal pain and cramping, or severe headache, or if he or she exhibits cold symptoms that include persistent cough or inability to breathe through the nose, severe sore throat, swollen glands, a rash, or red draining eyes, please keep your child at home. Calling your child’s doctor should always be a priority in these unsettling times. 
  • If your child complains of any of these symptoms while at school, as a precautionary measure, you will be required to pick he or she up within an hour.  The student will not be allowed to return home on their school vehicle with other students.  In the event that you may not be able to pick up your child, we ask that you make arrangements, in advance, with a family member, or friend, to do so.
  • Any student who has a fever must go home immediately. 
  • We must emphasize that these requirements are not discriminatory in any way.  They are needed in order to keep all students, staff, and the general public safe from the spread of this virus.  Since we cannot tell without tests whether your child has coronavirus or the flu, we must treat all sick persons as potentially having this disease. 
  • Among the things that you can do to help prevent contracting this virus are:  avoiding touching your eyes, mouth, and nose with unwashed hands.
  • Cover coughs and sneezes with a tissue and then throw it in the garbage immediately.
  • Wash hands frequently.  Wash hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds paying special attention to the fingertips—especially after sneezing or coughing.  If soap and water are not readily available, use hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol, and always wash hands with soap and water if they are visibly dirty.
  • Try to avoid contact with persons who are sick.
  • Practice proper methods for washing hands with your child, and review the proper protocol for sneezing and coughing. 


In our response to COVID-19, the health, safety, and well-being of our students and staff remains our first priority. Within the last few days, cases of the COVID-19 have developed throughout New Jersey and our area. Starting Monday, March 16, we will close Lakeview Learning Center for the remainder of the academic year. Our Distance Learning Program will begin on Monday, March 16 and continue throughout the duration of our closure.
