A co-educational private school for Preschool–Grade Eight



For nearly two years, we have gathered critical information from public health experts to guide us through the pandemic. Considering all of the important factors in going mask optional as of March 7, 2022, has been no different. The experts we spoke to agree that moving to a mask-optional policy starting March 7 makes sense at this time, given the precipitous decline in positivity locally, as well as the decrease in the severity of the infection. Understandably, the move in this direction is welcomed news for many but concerning to others. There may be members of our community who will prefer to remain masked, and of course, we will respect that decision. Students will be instructed to treat one another with respect regardless of their family's decision regarding masking.

The Governor’s announcement about lifting the mask mandate in schools as of March 7 is one more indication that schools are moving toward more normal operations while continuing with other common-sense measures to keep our communities healthy. If you have any questions, please contact our Health Office.

We continue to be cautiously optimistic as we head into the third trimester of the year. The safety and health of Far Hills Country Day School’s students, employees, and families will continually be our top priority. We appreciate our entire community’s efforts and dedication during this time.
