On March seventh the mask mandate is being dropped, so we will no longer need to wear masks. Although governor Phil Murphy said that school districts can choose to lift them or not, here at Ocean Township, the board of education voted that it should be optional. That’s not it either! Next week regular lunch tables are coming back. Round tables seat eight people, and rectangular tables seat twelve, so we can once again be more social at lunch and not feel like we can’t see our friends. This is a step in a great direction for all of us to get back to the way things used to be.
