Township works to keep locals safe amid pandemic

Safety measures

Council holds emergency meeting to formulate township’s official response The Sun As Covid-19 continues to spread, Moorestown Township officials are doing their part to keep residents and township staff safe. M o o re s t ow n Tow n s h i p Council held an emergency meeting on Monday, March 16, to formulate the township’s official response. As of Wednesday, March 18, town hall was to be closed to the general public, the latest in a series of township and county closures that have taken place as the global pandemic continues. Township Manager Thomas Merchel said for now, all township departments will remain open. The Department of Public Works will continue operating, but employees are asked to limit their interactions with the public. “The services are still going; we just may be modifying them

a little to minimize public interaction,” Merchel said. The Moorestown Township Police Department also remains operational. Chief Lee Lieber said the department is taking extra precautions, including frequent hand washing and wiping down vehicles. “We are using caution when responding to calls, checking with callers to ascertain if they are symptomatic and generally using social distancing to attempt to prevent exposure to our officers and other first responders,” he explained. As of deadline, Merchel said the township council meeting scheduled for Monday, March 23, was still to take place, with a largely scaled down agenda intended to address only the most pressing issues, such as getting the temporary budget in place. “This is a fluid situation, so we’re constantly going to please see COVID-19, page 11

On March 14, Cherry Hill resident Chris Bruner took to a local Cherry Hill Facebook group with a simple offer: “If you or your family are having a difficult time buying groceries, please let me know.” Since then, Bruner, who owns Cherry Hill-based construction company American Construction, and his employees have distributed food to more than 200 families across South Jersey. While the COVID-19 pandemic has put his construction business largely on hold, Bruner is paying his employees to pick up groceries and distribute them. The operation is entirely self-funded, and Bruner is refusing payment for groceries

Letters to the editor

Writer: Leadership begins in the home

A panicked people crave leadership, whether the source of anxiety is familial, or societal. When lives are upended, routines jolted and dreams temporarily diverted, we search for a beacon of steadying strength to guide us through the unknown. As we wrap our minds around the daily, life-changing barrage of information we must now absorb in this new corona culture, our emotionally most vulnerable are actually, currently, the medically least at risk. Leadership, during a societal crisis as threatening as COVID19, starts at the grassroots level, in the home. As we are bombardded with ever-evolving restrictions to life, our children are looking to us for reactionary appropriateness. The potential economic, educational, medical and mental health impact is astounding. Our children will forever remember our response to it. The expressions on our faces as we watch the news will be frozen in their memory. Are we lashing out in anger or are we making plans to organize our household? We serve as gover-

nors of our household as we unpack groceries, and our children see how many rolls of toilet paper, gallons of milk, bacterial wipes we stock. Did we consider leaving some for our neighbors? As managers of the days, our children will recall the feel of the new structure we impose in the absence of school, organized sports and the like. Did we wake them from their morning slumber in an effort to keep us engaged in the learning process, focused on long division, Shakespeare and biology? As keepers of the homespun hearts of our family, our children will feel the magnanimity we project. Our children will understand that the world is greater than them. They, too, are responsible for the well-being of the elderly and medically fragile. Empowerment will fortify them and nurture skills they will need as they navigate through their own futures. Our children are watching our every move, reading our every cue and maybe (if they’re teenagers) arguing our every directive. Years from now, they will recall this time and our steady leadership in their lives, appreplease see LETTERS, page 10

BOE talks school calendar, tentative budget By DAVID WEINSTEIN

Chair of the Finance and Operations Committee The Moorestown Board of Education held its regularly scheduled meeting Tuesday, March 17. At the meeting, the board approved the 2020–2021 school calendar, which has our students returning to school on Sept. 2 (prior to Labor Day) with the last day of school being Friday, June 18, 2021. The board also approved the 2020–2021 school budget for submission to the County Office of Education. The development of the school budget is a combined effort between the district’s administration and the Board of Education, working through the Finance and Operations Committee, of which I am the current chair.

The development of the budget for the district is a process of maintenance, seeking ways to add to the curriculum often by subtraction. In the now common environment in New Jersey of budget caps and underWEINSTEIN funding by the State of New Jersey, our district annually is left seeking ways to do more with less. The job of the Finance and Operations Committee is to provide guidance and suggestions to the superintendent in developing the annual budget as well as the capital and operational needs of the district. The committee not only provides insight and assistance to the budget pro-

cess but also reviews the capital needs (such as the development of projects for a capital referendum project) and the ideas for revenue generation for the district. Since 2013, the district has been able to increase the amount of non-tax derived revenues from approximately $800,000 to more than $3,000,000 in the 2020–2021 budget. In developing the 2020–2021 budget, the shortfall was initially more than $5,000,000. However, with the reduction of capital programs and other strategic cuts and efficiencies in programming and staffing guided by our district’s strategic plan, the administration presented the board with the budget that the board approved. The 2020–2021 budget will use the full 2 percent cap increase that is provided please see EDUCATION, page 10

Constant changes in how the nation is fighting the coronavirus have caused hospitals and medical offices to alter visitation policies and push for patients to follow their advice. Dr. Charles Scott, chair of Advocare Doctors’ Coronavirus Task Force — who practices general pediatric care at Advocare Medford and Mansfield Pediatric and Adolescent Medicine — explained that COVID-19, or novel coronavirus, has symptoms similar to the flu and pneumonia, both of which are common this time of year. “Respiratory difficulties, fevers and dry coughs,” he said, “those are similar to the flu, pneumonia and others.

Social distancing is important, hand washing for 20 seconds and mind your coughs and sneezes.” In the event of COVID-19 symptoms or the flu, Scott urges patients to call their primary care offices to alert nurse practitioners, secretaries and doctors. “If we have a suspected patient, don’t be surprised if a doctor comes with a gown, masks and gloves,” Scott explained. “Are we treating our patients?

As for treatment of the virus, fluids are highly suggested. As of deadline, there is neither a vaccine nor definitive treatment. Scott said severely ill patients should get treatments specific to their complications. Scott urged that over-the-counter medicines be taken when appropriate and as labeled. “Ibuprofen is not a friend to kidneys and acetaminophen isn’t friendly to the liver; use them when needed, but don’t overdo it,” he advised. As of deadline, coronavirus testing is currently limited to those with symptoms. “If you’re sick, call us first so you can get the appropriate care so we can prepare for when you visit the office,” Scott said. “Telehealth (medical services by phone) is probably coming up in the next few weeks, but there are some things we need to physically see face to face.”

MHS freshman finds way to connect with local seniors amid virus restrictions

By KELLY FLYNN The Sun Colin DiPasquale had plans to entertain the seniors of Brandywine Living on Saturday, March 14. The 14-year-old Moorestown resident recently started Senior Serenades, a program with the nonprofit Local Acts of Kindness where musical teenagers donate their time to perform for seniors at local assisted living facilities. But on Thursday, March 12, came the news: Brandywine has restricted visitor access to protect the health and safety of its residents during the COVID-19 pandemic. DiPasquale wasn’t going to let that stop him: On Friday evening, he assembled his musicians and fellow Moorestown High School freshmen. With Raghav Akula on saxophone and Andy Chang on violin, the trio recorded a virtual performance

Special to The Sun

Fourteen-year-old Colin DiPasquale recently started Senior Serenades, a program with the nonprofit Local Acts of Kindness where musical teenagers donate their time to perform for seniors at local assisted living facilities. When COVID-19 prevented him and his fellow musicians from performing in person, he assembled his musicians and fellow Moorestown High School freshmen Raghav Akula (center) and Andy Chang (right) to record a virtual performance. and edited it in time to send to Brandywine for a scheduled 2 p.m. performance. “Since they’re shut in and can’t see everyone, I thought I would bring people into my home,” DiPasquale said. Senior Serenades stemmed

9

from DiPasquale’s visits to his grandparents’ house. Having long taken piano lessons, his grandparents frequently encouraged him to perform for them, and he began thinking about how he could bring the joy his performances brought to them

to other seniors. So last summer, DiPasquale began traveling to local assisted living facilities and offering to perform. In December 2019, the DiPasquale family created Local Acts of Kindness, an organization dedicated to issuing

challenges to spread kindness throughout town, and the MHS freshman created the Senior Serenade program shortly thereafter. His goal for Senior Serenades is to link musically inclined teens with local seniors at assisted living facilities. Typically, when DiPasquale and his fellow musicians perform, they play about five songs each. So, they gathered in the DiPasquale family living room and recorded their performance in full with a personalized greeting for the Brandywine seniors. Rebecca Lentine, the facility’s activities director, said since DiPasquale first reached out, he’s exhibited a maturity and eloquence well beyond his years. When he sent the video, she wasn’t sure what to expect. “I was blown away by the quality of the video,” Lentine said. DiPasquale and his fellow mu-

But, when my stepson, who is a resident in a local Bancroftrun facility for adults with disabilities, went with staff to do his weekly Sunday morning shopping (yes, he is an adult with autism, knows the routine

and shows growth and independence in such events as “shopping at the market”), what did he find? No bread. Yes, he makes his sandwich by himself nightly for his next day at a job facility. No peanut butter. No paper supplies. He has limited mental resources to solve this. He is not unlike senior citizens showing up to buy one week’s worth of groceries/ items. But who are these community members, not taking two jars of applesauce but five. All the hand sanitizers, not two?

Here at the Community House we are closed for business and waiting out the COVID-19 crisis like all of you. As you may know, the Community House subsists entirely on donations and rental income. We are greatly affected by the mandate to close, and we empathize deeply with other businesses and families that are suffering at this time. Let’s take a moment to think about our future and the fun events that may lie ahead – graduations, anniversaries, birthdays, showers, even weddings! When some normalcy returns,

Jeffrey can cook spaghetti under supervision, but there are no noodles and no sauce left! I was at Wegmans in Mt. Laurel, and saw a woman with an over loaded cart, including at least five cartons of 18 eggs. All I could hope: I wish you are a staff person at a group facility buying for a community like my Jeffrey’s. Unfortunately, I think that was only hopeful. I don’t blame anyone for taking care of their immediate family. But my Jeffrey got nothing this Sunday morning. He is verbal and said to me “this isn’t always.” I add that he is in good hands and will not go without because “we” as family and Bancroft provide. Debra Roberts

we are excited to reopen our doors to host your special milestone celebrations, as well as any corporate meetings and fundraisers you may wish to plan.

Stay safe!

continued from page 6 under New Jersey law, includes the use of enrollment adjustment levy increases (based upon our district’s increasing enrollment and determined by the State of New Jersey) as well as a portion of banked cap available to the district (created by prior years increased enrollment adjustments and health benefit cost increases unused by the district). The 2020–2021 budget also includes for the first time both pay-to-participate fees to be charged to our students who participate in sports, clubs and other activities, as well as a parking permit fee to be charged to our students who want the privilege to drive to and park at our high school. More information will follow from the district once the budget is finalized. That vote is scheduled to take place on April 28. The resulting increase on the average assessed home in Moorestown will be $124.53. On a personal note, I would like to thank the administration and staff of our schools and our community for coming together to address the changes caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The combined efforts to assure continued education of our children through a remote setting is inspiring. While speaking for myself, I am sure there are many other on the Board of Education who share my sentiments.

COVID-19: Township ready continued from page 1 be making decisions,� Merchel noted. “Right now, we do plan on having the [council] meetings, but we’re going to really restrict and pare down meetings.� Merchel said the township is working to keep employees safe. The layout of town hall already has desks spaced out to accommodate recommended social distancing, and the township wants employees to practice their own distancing. Sick employees have been asked to stay home. All township advisory committee meetings have been cancelled until further notice, and the March 18 and March 25 municipal court sessions were postponed. Residents are encouraged to pay their tax, sewer and water bills online. The Moorestown Library and the Department of Parks and Recreation facilities are closed until further notice. While local parks remain open, residents are asked to practice social distancing in public.

Lieber said the police department is in regular contact with its county and state partners at respective health departments and emergency management services to get up-to-date information on dealing with the health emergency. The department is also providing information for residents from the New Jersey Department of Health and the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) on its Twitter, Facebook and Nixle accounts. “We encourage everyone to follow precautions, including washing hands regularly and maintaining social distancing of at least six feet, as well as adhere to the governor’s order,� Lieber said.

THE MOORESTOWN SUN — MARCH 25-31, 2020

Free internet, faster connection help remote schooling Comcast program aids school districts in remote learning during COVID-19 social distancing By MADELEINE MACCAR The Sun As more cases of COVID-19 are discovered in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, residents are hunkering down in their homes for long-term isolation. COVID-19, more popularly known as the coronavirus, is the communicable, flu-like disease that affects the respiratory system and is at the center of the current pandemic. Efforts to slow the spread of the virus have non-essential employees from all industries and public, private and parochial school students gearing up to work and learn from home for an indefinite but long-term period. But with the spike in telecommuting and at-home virtual classrooms comes the reality that some households and lowincome areas are without either internet access or the tools to get online — especially in the face of widespread library closures that further restrict affordable access for many. Even more aren’t sufficiently equipped to handle the digital demands of their jobs or education with at-home internet limitations. “During this difficult time,

when schools and workplaces are closed due to the coronavirus, access to the internet has never been more important,” said Alexandra Wachman, Public Relations Manager at Comcast. “With this in mind, we are going to offer 60 days of free internet service through our Internet Essentials program ... for low-income Americans. Additionally, we’re increasing speeds of the service for all new and existing customers.” Internet Essentials has helped more than eight million customers since 2011 by providing lowcost, high-speed internet to eligible households. Effective March 16, Comcast rolled out “two substantial program enhancements” for Internet Essentials and those families most technologically compromised by the new normal of working and learning from home, both Wachman and a press release further explained. “A hallmark of this program has been our flexibility in adjusting Internet Essentials to meet the needs of low-income residents in our footprint,” Wachman explained of the twopronged approach. Eligible, low-income new cus-

tomers in a Comcast service area can get 60 days of complimentary Internet Essentials service by signing up for the program, typically available to eligible households for $9.95 a month. It must be applied for by April 30. Additionally, Internet Essentials will permanently and automatically increase its speeds from 15/2 Mbps to 25/3 Mbps for new and existing customers alike. All new services and initiatives are available to both New Jersey and Pennsylvania Comcast customers, according to Wachman. “In this way, we will ensure that Internet Essentials customers will be able to use their internet service for all their increased needs as a result of this health crisis,” she noted. Five additional steps have also been announced offering increased affordability, connectivity or access to information. Xfinity WiFi hotspots will be available free to anyone who needs them (a hotspot map can be accessed at xfinity.com/wifi), while a pause in all data plans will offer unlimited data at no additional charge for 60 days.

Disconnects and late fees will also be suspended temporarily, as long as customers communicate with Comcast about the need for a moratorium in payment. School-age children can now access a variety of educational content by saying “education” into an X1 or Flex voice remote. Those same remotes can tap into the most up-to-date COVID-19 information when a user says “coronavirus” into them. And to accommodate the sudden and long-term shift in internet usage, all systems and networks will be monitored, tested and enhanced to support spikes in user patterns. Numerous school districts throughout both states have already taken advantage of the programs and services currently available, with many directly helping low-income households in their areas receive free internet to aid in their children’s continued education. MaST Community Charter School, which has three Philadelphia locations, is one of those schools, according to CEO John F. Swoyer III. “We have families using the Comcast Essentials package

with their pricing discount to access internet throughout our schools,” he said. “We see the impact of access and learning to be key at a time like this for all students.” In New Jersey’s Burlington County, Evesham Township School District Director of Curriculum and Instruction Danielle Magulick has seen households in need also benefit from accessible internet providing their children’s remote classroom. “Comcast’s Internet Essentials is one program that we typically talk to families about,” she said. “We do have families who are using the 60 days of free internet.” Both Swoyer and Magulick said their districts are using Comcast in conjunction with other available technologies, from devices to programs, in order to ensure as seamless a transition as possible from inperson classrooms to at-home screens. “We are trying to ensure children are engaged while at home and our teachers are using our virtual portal ... to make this happen,” Swoyer said. “They are doing an excellent job.”

Lunch: School district still providing meals to students during closure continued from page 7 now described as a pandemic, forcing much of the worldwide population into isolation to minimize its impact. In an attempt to “flatten the curve,” those whose jobs can be done from home and schoolchildren are encouraged to have minimal contact with others to slow the transmission of the disease to manageable levels that don’t overwhelm the health care system. Schools have closed well into the spring, as dictated by the state’s March 13 press conferences calling for precautionary measures that include long-term closures. The state mandated that all public, private and paro-

chial schools would close March 16, with an April 17 reevaluation date — which also happens to coincide with the Moorestown district’s last day of spring break. In addition to demanding the immediate implementation of an emergency plan to facilitate long-distance learning for district students, the anticipated month-long closure creates additional challenges in ensuring that students reliant upon reduced and free lunches don’t go without regular meals. “Food services are part of our plan,” McCartney said. He added that about 30 students in the district depend on low- or no-cost lunches, and

that they are not going without. Working in tandem with NutriServe, a food-management company that partners with schools throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania, MTPS is offering bagged lunches to feed students who qualify for the program without interruption. “We have pushed out messaging to all of our parents letting them know that food service will continue for any eligible free- or reduced-lunch student,” said McCartney, explaining that since most schools are within walking distance from students’ homes, lunches can be picked up at the front of their own schools. The bagged lunches will be

served from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Monday; those families who have more than one child in the district can pick up all their food at the youngest child’s school. During the week of March 16, the first week of remote learning, lunches were available for pickup every day, McCartney explained; for every week after that, a week’s worth of food will be available each Monday, at the same charge as a cafeteria lunch: The free lunches remain free, and the reduced lunches are still 40 cents. A link on the MTPS website, mtps.com, allows parents and guardians to discreetly continue a child’s access to healthy, afford-

able lunches by pre-ordering from a variety of lunches according to dietary restrictions and preferences. Pre-ordering is mandatory, and must be done by 10 p.m. on the Sunday preceding each week: As an example, a lunch for the week of March 30 would need to be ordered by 10 p.m. March 29. The district is tentatively scheduled to reopen Monday, April 20. Caregivers can stay updated about MTSD’s responses to and plans for continuing student education as seamlessly as possible at the district’s dedicated COVID19 page, mtps.com/covid-19.

Serenade: Students entertain seniors continued from page 9 sicians were dressed in shirts and ties, and one by one, they introduced themselves before performing. Lentine said residents were not only impressed by the quality of the performance, but by the fact that the trio had taken time out of their Friday night to create the video. The performance was so well received, Brandywine aired it a second time on March 18. Lentine said COVID-19 has changed the senior assisted living facility’s procedures for the time being and has further restricted the lives of residents. But she said they’re grateful to people like DiPasquale for making entertainment accessible with technology. DiPasquale plans to keep the virtual serenades going in the

weeks to come. He’s already recorded personalized introductions for other assisted living facilities he and his fellow musicians were scheduled to visit. He plans to record and edit new videos at home for online viewing, until he can resume in-person visits. He said in an effort to follow social distancing protocols, he and his fellow musicians will film separately. “This will allow me to accept more musicians and edit more shows together, to eventually expand to other areas reaching more seniors who are not having any visitors,” DiPasquale said. High school musicians interested in participating can contact DiPasquale at seniorsere nades.org@gmail.com. For more information on the program, visit www.seniorserenades.org.

THE MOORESTOWN SUN — MARCH 25-31, 2020

Kindness: Local business owner helps community during pandemic continued from page 4 the community that people need to come together during times of need and help one another. So, on Saturday morning, he posted in a few Cherry Hill community Facebook pages and offered to buy groceries for Cherry Hill families who couldn’t afford food or who are at-risk and uncomfortable leaving their home. He encouraged families not to feel embarrassed and promised that they would maintain the anonymity of anyone who contacted them. That same day, he and his wife were out until midnight running to grocery stores for those who contacted them. Bruner said he recognized that COVID-19 is going to slow down his business in the weeks to come, and he wanted to find a way to get

his employees their 40 hours. So, he offered anyone who felt comfortable a choice to join their efforts and get paid to run errands for those in need. The company’s trucks are being used for grocery transport, and Bruner’s Cherry Hill home has become an unofficial command center. The company is taking every precaution to ensure that they don’t spread the virus. Employees are wiping down all the supplies before dropping them off and placing groceries on porches or doorsteps while asking those they’re helping to stay in the house. He said over the weekend, supplies were extremely low around the region, and they were travelling to three or four grocery stores to get people the food they needed. “Grocery stores looked like war

zones,” Bruner said. As of Monday, March 16, stores were beginning to have more stock, and they could streamline their operation a bit more. He’s not sure how long they’ll continue doing this, but Bruner said his phone and Facebook page hasn’t stopped being inundated. He said as long as people need help and they’re able to provide it, they’re going to keep going. “I can’t say no,” Bruner said. He said the people they’re helping run the gamut. They’ve been contacted by single mothers worried about finding diapers and formula for their children. They’ve run to the store for elderly couples, or for families with a member undergoing cancer treatment. The operation has also expanded out from Cherry Hill as more

and more people learned about what they were doing. As of Tuesday, March 17, they’d helped more than 200 families from across South Jersey, including residents of Cherry Hill, Mt. Laurel, Washington Township, Somerdale, Moorestown, Turnersville, Voorhees, Camden, Haddon Heights and Collingswood. Bruner said everyone who’s contacted them has been in serious need. “We weren’t sure what to expect from people, but we haven’t seen anyone take advantage of the service,” Bruner said. While several people have offered to donate, Bruner’s response is that the operation is 100 percent self-funded, and their sole goal is to set a good example for their children and other people in the

community. He said the people they’ve helped have been overwhelmed with gratitude. One couple opened the door in tears and explained that they were going hungry prior to their visit and wouldn’t have eaten if Bruner’s team hadn’t arrived. He said they feel honored to get to meet and help so many grateful people. “I feel like we are the lucky ones; we are getting to see the best side of people,” Bruner said. Editor’s note: At this time, Bruner is still operational but limited to helping those in serious need. The company is also trying to limit their own exposure to COVID-19 because they don’t want to infect those they are helping. Therefore, they’ve asked only those who are in serious need contact them.
