New Policies and Procedures for 2020-21

August 27, 2020 | Thomas Postema

The start of the 2020-21 school year will be unlike any other we’ve experienced. In this three-part video series, I cover what MSS parents need to know about new school-wide policies and procedures during the pandemic. Each video is between 5-7 minutes. We hope that this is helpful.

Who do I contact if I have more questions?

Here’s a look at what each video will cover:

  • Part 1:  Introduction
  • Part 2: Masks, Arrival, Health Screenings, Dismissal
  • Part 3: Illness, Food, Worship, What to do Now

After watching the videos, I encourage you to read the Coronavirus Addendum to the Parent Handbook. Before your child can attend school, you must sign the form in the Family Portal indicating that you have read the addendum and agree to follow the new policies and procedures.

Thomas Postema

Head of School

An educator for over 35 years, Mr. Postema has taught math and been a school administrator at international schools in Japan and South Korea, as well as schools in the USA (New Jersey and Alaska). He taught at Mustard Seed from 1989-1991 when Mr. Cuervo and Mr. Johnson were MSS students!

Since arriving back at Mustard Seed in 2011 as Head of School, Mr. Postema has successfully led the school through the NJAIS accreditation process and the Together for Tomorrow endowment campaign, which raised over $3M to benefit MSS students. Mr. Postema loves to tell the Mustard Seed story and is passionate about the mission to serve families from all walks of life.

Mr. Postema’s three children attended Mustard Seed and he would love it if his three grandchildren lived close enough to be students at the school. An avid traveler, Mr. Postema has visited over 30 countries in his adventures abroad.
