COVID 19 HEALTH POLICY 

RELIGIOUS SCHOOL 

 
Upon arrival at WJC each day, a staff member will take each student’s temperature with a digital contact-less thermometer prior to the student entering the building. As mentioned above, if a student registers a temperature of 100 degrees or higher, as outlined by WJC Covid-19 Policy, the student will not be allowed to enter the building and will be asked to return home and seek medical advice. 
 
If a student shows signs of illness during the day, he/she will be isolated from others and parents will be contacted to pick up their student immediately. 
 
In the event that a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19 WJC, the religious school will take the following steps: 
1. The NY State Dept. of Health will be contacted. 
2. The WJC Health and Safety Committee will be notified. 
3. The affected class will temporarily close, and student and staff will not be allowed to return for 14 days. 
4. The student or staff member will not be allowed to return to school until 10 days after symptoms first appeared and they must be fever free for at least 72 hours without the aid of fever reducing medication(s). 
5. If the student/staff member was asymptomatic, they can return to school after 10 days have passed since the positive test. 
6. WJC will wait 24 hours before cleaning and disinfecting the room to allow respiratory droplets to settle. 
7. WJC will clean and disinfect all areas used by the student/staff member who is infected such as offices, bathrooms, classroom, and other common areas. 
8. WJC will notify all parents and guardians in the event that a student or staff member tests positive for Covid-19. 
9.  IF a child is sent home for illness, he/she must receive a valid negative COVID test before returning to Religious School.
 
In the event that a staff member/child has a household member or has sustained contact with someone that has or is suspected to have Covid-19, the student/staff member will be unable to return to school for 14 days. Please seek medical advice from your healthcare provider. If during that time the student/staff member is diagnosed with Covid-19, you must notify Fran Pearlman immediately at fpearlman@woodburyjc.org or by phone at 516-496-9100. 
 
In the event that a student/staff member is ill, but is not suspected of having Covid-19: 
1. The student/staff member must be symptom and fever-free for at least 72 hours without the aid of fever-reducing medicine before returning to school. 
2. The student/staff member will be required to provide WJC with a note from their health care provider confirming that they are medically cleared to return to school. 
 
Please seek your own healthcare provider’s advice and availability of testing to determine if you have Covid-19 for the safety and security of your child, your family, and the entire WJC Religious School community. 
 
Travel: 
In order to limit exposure and contraction of Covid-19, we request and encourage families to limit travel if possible. If a family or family member travels outside of the United States or to any of the NY quarantined states within two weeks of or during the school year, upon arrival home, the student(s) cannot return to school for 14 days while you monitor the family’s health. If during this time, any family member exhibits any Covid-19 symptoms, please notify Fran Pearlman and your health provider immediately. 
 
 

Religious School

Woodbury Jewish Center’s Religious School is dedicated to making every child feel good about themselves as Jews and as young adults. Starting in Kindergarten and throughout their years with us, students learn to appreciate Jewish history, heritage, holidays and, most of all, the values of chesed (helping others) and tikkum olam (healing the world). 

Kindergarten, First and Second grade classes meet on Sunday mornings. Alef (3rd grade) through Daled (6th grade) classes meet on Sunday mornings and Wednesday afternoons. Our Hey students (7th grade) meet on Wednesday afternoons, along with a number of volunteer opportunities and scheduled private Bar/Bat lessons with the Cantor.

Jewish holidays are observed by every grade with a variety of fun programs and activities. Our students also enjoy off-site learning at Jewish and Holocaust museums, working at a food pantry, entertaining at an assisted living facility and lots more.

Students who complete our program have the ability to fully participate in all synagogue services and events and holiday celebrations in the home.

Bar/Bat Mitzvah

A child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah is one of the most exciting stages in a family’s Jewish life. We offer resources, support and encouragement throughout the process. Our goal is for every child feel confident and at ease on the bimah.  Read More

High School And Confirmation

The Bar or Bat Mitzvah is the not the end of our children's Jewish education. Our High School classes, for grades 8-11, meet with Rabbi Fruithandler twice each month and are intended to bolster the student's confidence with lessons in leadership skills from a Jewish perspective. Children who continue taking classes through tenth grade are treated to a wonderful Confirmation ceremony and celebration.
