Ridgewood NJ, according to the Ridgewood School District approximately 60% of faculty, staff, and parents responded to a Voluntary Anonymous Vaccination Survey.
Of those who responded:
98% of the faculty and staff are fully vaccinated
98% of Ridgewood High School students are fully vaccinated
67% of Benjamin Franklin Middle School students are fully vaccinated
69% of George Washington Middle School students are fully vaccinated
80% of the 6th-grade students who are younger than 12 will get vaccinated once eligible
Although we did not have a 100% response rate, the District will have accurate vaccination data for all faculty and staff by October 18, 2021 to meet the requirements of Executive Order 253. Anyone who is not vaccinated will be tested weekly as per this mandate. The District is currently in the process of coordinating on-site COVID-19 testing with an outside vendor for both staff members and students and hopes to have more information next week.
