Class of 2020 Graduation Celebration and Ceremonies Guidance - May 11, 2020
Dear Families and Members of the Delaware Valley Regional High School Class of 2020,By now you are most likely aware we have received guidance from the New Jersey Department of Education and State Police regarding graduation celebrations and ceremonies. The guidance memos from the NJDOE and NJSP are attached for your use. Our first priority is and always will be the health and safety of our students and staff.Our message regarding graduation thus far has been consistent: we are planning multiple scenarios for the 2020 graduation ceremony including a fully virtual "graduation" tribute, a traditional June graduation on the field, or something in between. The form that Graduation 2020 takes is not a decision we are permitted to make on our own. With the exception of the fully virtual graduation tribute, all activities will be developed and carried out in conjunction with Governor Murphy's orders and input from the Hunterdon County Department of Health.At this time, it has become apparent that our traditional June graduation ceremony on the field is not a likely possibility. Our virtual graduation tribute will definitely be a part of this year's ceremony or celebration. The attached memos do indicate that graduation drive-bys or drive-thrus, our "in-between" options, are not permitted at this time. Please know that we have been planning for months, and our plans remain in place. In the event that the social distancing and gathering restrictions are lifted, we are prepared to carry out this option on very short notice.Again, we will not know if this "in between" option will be a possibility until we receive further direction and clearance authorization from the NJ Departments of Education and Health and the State Police.Mrs. Olcott will be sending a separate notice describing the special plans that we have for you.Warm regards,Daria Wasserbach

Dear Parents/Guardians and Students,
As you know, Governor Murphy has announced the extension of the statewide school facilities closure through the end of the 2019/2020 school year, or June 30, 2020. The Commissioner also confirmed that the statutory 180 school day requirement remains in effect. As such, our DLDs will continue through the remainder of the 19/20 school year.
At this time, we do not have information about summer programs or the start of the 2020/2021 school year. Additional information will be forthcoming from the Governor and the Department of Education. In the meanwhile, a dedicated group of DelVal staff members, coordinated by Mr. Adam Wright, is developing a comprehensive Return to School plan that will address: Governance, Wellness, Instruction, Facilities, School Operations, and Technology.
Please be reminded that the original 2019/2020 DelVal school calendar reflects 183 student/teacher days, and 3 built-in emergency closing (snow) days. In light of the extraordinary circumstances, on May 4 the Board of Education adopted the revised 2019/2020 school calendar reflecting the forgiveness of the three instructional days beyond the statutory requirement, and returning the 2 built-in unused emergency closing (snow) days. As you can see on the revised 19/20 school calendar, the last day of Distance Learning is now Friday, Jun 5, 2020. Graduation, in whatever form it takes, will still be held on June 12, 2020.

Dear Friends and Families of DVRHS,As you know, Governor Murphy has directed that school facilities remain closed through at least May 15. At this point, we have no option other than to postpone our May 16 DelVal Diamond Jubilee Jamboree. Rest assured, we're not going away that easily! We are collaborating with other community organizations to share dates and resources, and the Jamboree will be most likely rescheduled for early to mid-October. The exact date will be confirmed ASAP.The activities and location will all remain the same, only the date will change.Best,Daria Wasserbach, Superintendent
Below is a message from Service Electric Cable TV:
Dear Service Electric Family,
While you have received official notifications of our action plan and procedures put in place to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic, I wanted to personally let you know that our management team is doing everything we can to closely monitor and adjust to the situation. As many of our regular projects and responsibilities have been put on hold, we will continue to work around the clock to ensure that we are making the best decisions for our employees and customers.
The Lehigh Valley's surrounding emergency infrastructures, including local hospitals and major health networks, are depending on us to provide continued, reliable service and connectivity. Work-from-home personnel and small businesses need SECTV to be able to serve their customers, while families are counting on us to help entertain and educate their youth during this ongoing self-quarantine period.
Service Electric has also made a commitment to join the ''Keep America Connected'' pledge to:
• Not terminate service to any residential or small business due to the inability to pay their bill.
• Waive late fees that residential or small business customers incur because of their economic circumstance related to the coronavirus pandemic.
• Open its Wi-Fi hotspots to everyone.
Additionally, SECTV will offer free 10x5 Internet service for 90 days for new customers during this ongoing national emergency.
For more information on modem access and the 60-day financial grace period, please contact a SECTV Customer Service representative at:
Toll Free in PA (800) 232-9100
Toll Free in NJ (800) 225-9102
We will continue to assess the situation and adjust accordingly, doing our best to keep our employees safe and our customers connected.
John M. Walson
Service Electric Cable TV & Communications
Note: Free cable modem service and installation for 90 days to everyone that is not a cable modem subscriber presently. After 90 days the service will return to its normal rate of $34.95 or you can disconnect with no termination fees.
***Services Update 5-19-2020***As many of you are aware since mid-March, with the outbreak of COVID-19, SECTV has been offering cable modem service and wifi router for free. This nationwide program was proposed by the FCC to provide free service based on need, and each cable provider had the option to consider joining the program. SECTV was one of the first cable providers in the nation to implement this program. To date we have installed over 1500 free modems. This FCC program ends on June 15, 2020, but we chose to go beyond to an end date of June 30 2020, to ensure the timeline covers the entire school semester.
Attached is a copy of the letter that has been mailed to everyone that signed up for the free “Connect America” plan. The letter details Federal guideline options for continued service at a reduced cost based on eligibility requirements.
