Mansfield Township School District

Rooted in Values, Growing in Knowledge


  • April 3, 2020


    Dear MTSD Community, 


    Our district continues to respond to our national health crisis. Everyone has stepped up to meet the needs of our students and community in ways we never expected we would have to. While this is a national emergency, it is very personal for all of us. We all have family, friends, and people dear to us who are impacted. The loss of life is certainly devastating. We are all trying to find ways to connect with each other and to provide the necessities of daily life without exposing ourselves or anyone else to the disease. Nothing is more serious or important to me than making sure our students and their families have what they need during this time. 


    I had the opportunity to meet parents virtually this morning as we navigate our changing terrain. I discussed a few topics that are listed below:


    • Student Survey Results:
    •     Grades PreK-2
    •         66% of students feel the assigned work is just right
    •         92% of students interact with their teachers
    •         80% of students can find their assignments easily
    •     Grades 3-6
    •        82% of students feel the assigned work is just right
    •        94% of students interact with their teachers
    •        60% of students can find their assignments easily
    • Next Wednesday, you will receive notification from your child’s building principal with our revised closure plan.
    • Mindfulness Monday’s will continue, listed below are the dates:
    •     April 6, 13, 27 (Due to Spring Break, we will not have April 20 as a Mindfulness Monday, we will have Mid-Week Mindfulness on Wednesday, April 22) 
    •     May 4, 11, 18
    •     June 1, 8
    • The Administrative Team and myself are reviewing End of the Year activities.  We will be reviewing the activities that can take place virtually, if in fact, we do not return to school.  
    • MTSD Spring Break will be April 10-17, 2020


    This is all very difficult. Some families have four people working at their kitchen table together, each on their own zoom calls/meetings and trying to find ways to focus. Patience is being pushed to its limits. Please know, we are all in this together. Many parents are worried about their children. The district cannot change some of the outcomes from the mandatory closures of our schools. The district can continue to provide as much help as possible during this time. We understand that distance learning opportunities will continue to take time to get used to. We do not expect students and parents to take up the gauntlet of education on their own.  We also do not have the same expectations of students working on-line as we would in person. During these difficult times, while students will be expected to participate in their education, they won’t be held to every standard as if school were open. Please be patient with yourselves, as we are all treading new ground. We have learned so much since this all began. 


    As we all know, the Governor has a “stay home” order in place. Public school employees are considered essential. Most of our employees are working remotely. We do have several onsite staff doing a variety of important and meaningful tasks. Those onsite are following strict guidelines on social distancing and sanitizing and will not report to work if they are ill. Our buildings are closed to the public including students and families.


    We will be holding our Board of Education Meeting via teleconferencing on Monday, April 6 at 6:30pm.  The dial in information is: Dial In 844-844-0414   Access Code 835275. 


    Please note that lunches will be distributed at John Hydock Elementary School starting April 6, 2020. Pick up time will remain 10am-12pm but only on Mondays and Wednesdays. Up to three meals per child can be picked up at one time, eliminating the need to come daily. If you have not done so yet, please inform  Mrs. Danielle Morolda of your interest in receiving these meals. She can be reached at 609-298-2037 ext. 2500 or


    Your child may have library books at home.  At some point, they will be collected. Please keep them in a safe place. 


    Please remember, keep your social distancing and practice good hygiene. Wash your hands often. Take care of your families and loved ones first and foremost. This is the number one priority at this time.


    Enjoy your weekend!  Stay healthy & well! 


    Tiffany J. Moutis, Superintendent

    Due to Governor Murphy's Executive Order #107 that all NJ schools will be closed until further notice to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Mansfield Township School District will continue with our remote learning program indefinitely.
