The Superintendent of Hackettstown and Great Meadows Regional School Districts, Dave Mango, issued a statement Wednesday reminding residents to keep off school property after the district’s security staff has seen an increase in community activity.
“Going forward, security staff will be contacting and partnering with local law enforcement should anyone fail to comply with the Governor’s executive orders and continue to congregate on school grounds,” Mango said.
The Hackettstown and Great Meadows school property includes: playgrounds, all fields of play, parking lots and all other property owned by the Board of Education.
“Since the onset of this pandemic crisis, the district has only permitted essential employees and on occasion, those staff and parents onto grounds for the purpose of technology and material pick up. All efforts are coordinated with my office, prior to authorization for access,” Mango said.
“While my office understands and sympathizes with you for some form of normalcy and need for fresh air, I ask that you please remain cognizant of safe social distancing and remain home and off district property,” Mango said.
