Students will be required to wear a mask in the school shop at all times!  When students enter the school shop they will proceed directly to the sink to wash their hands before they take their seat.  Student seating has been modified to meet all Sate of New Jersey distancing requirements.  Students will remain in those assigned seats until we begin working independently.  Once students begin moving around freely, they will maintain a six foot safe distance at all times.   All hand tools, portable power tools and larger industrial machines will be wiped down at the end of each period to insure we keep the room as clean as possible.  Anti-bacterial spray bottles with disposable hand towels, and hand sanitizer have been placed all around the room to insure the room stays as clean and safe as possible. At the end of the period all table surfaces, stools, and common hand tools will be wiped down and sanitized before they are used again for the next class period. 


    Welcome back to what is going to be another great semester in the Liberty Shop.  I look forward to meeting all my new students and working again with my returning students. Please check back often to view updated information and student project pictures. 


    Please remember to check the school supplies needed for class in the school supplies tab.  Also, remember to check the Genesis Portal often to monitor your student's progress in class.
