Comprehensive Health and Physical Education
This webpage is designed to provide information related to the revised health curriculum, so that families can make informed decisions regarding their child’s education. Below are links to the New Jersey Student Learning Standards, the September 12 health curriculum information session, and the opt-out form at each school.
Families are encouraged to review the curriculum and reach out to their child’s teacher with any questions or concerns. Parents have the right to excuse their child from portions of the health curriculum. The principals will handle the opt-out process discreetly and ensure that parents’ wishes are honored. Students will be given an alternate assignment in a supervised location and will not be penalized in any way for opting out. Each school has an opt-out form on its website. Pursuant to state law, a signed form is required.
