HACKETTSTOWN, NJ (Warren County) – Hackettstown Middle School and Hatchery Hill School will once again switch to virtual learning on Wednesday as the two buildings continue to be cleaned.

The two schools have been closed since Monday and had transitioned to virtual learning. Hackettstown High School and Willow Grove School have remained open.

According to Superintendent David Mango, “In abundance of caution, due to possible building wide exposure to COVID-19, Hatchery Hill School and the Middle School will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday, October 28th, for deep cleaning purposes. No staff is required to report and all learning will be conducted virtually. The virtual schedule is available on the school website and all instructional questions should be sent via email directly to staff and building administration.”

“At this time, the district is collaborating with the Warren County Health Department regarding contact tracing and awaiting test results or alternate diagnosis for confirmation. Going forward, it is strongly recommended that any student or staff member exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms see a physician for an exam and remain home until they have received final test results,” Mango said.

“My office will send follow-up alerts over the next 24 hours. I thank you in advance for your understanding and patience concerning this matter,” Mango said.
