COVID-19 POLICY 

KEEPING IT SAFE, SANITARY DURING THE PANDEMIC 

GRIT programs, camps and events  are designed to follow/ exceed the CDC Guidelines. NJ Dept of Health and the proposed reopening plan set forth by the State of New Jersey. We continue to update/amend these as the CDC and State of New Jersey  Health Department provide further guidance. 
 

As parents of five boys, we pledge to make COVID-19 safety our top priority. We recognize that we are all in this together fighting this pandemic and will do our part as part of the community.  We take this very seriously and will communicate, educate, implement and enforce safety standards that meet and exceed what is recommended to ensure our students, athletes staff and the community are safe and healthy.
