“Today is a sad day in the North Bergen School District as we have lost one of our own,” writes North Bergen Superintendent Dr. George Solter after news of a 6-year-old Lincoln School student passing away with the flu.
“Due to the recent flu virus outbreak, the North Bergen School District is taking every precaution possible to make each one of our schools a safe and healthy learning environment for our students.”
The school district has taken extra precaution by disinfecting school desk, doorknobs, handles, toilets, sinks and other surfaces with bleach to “help prevent the virus from spreading.”
“We would like to express our deepest sympathies to the family of our student, our hearts, thoughts, and prayers are with them during this difficult time,” expressed Dr. Solter. “We all stand together as a school, a district and a community during this trying time.”
