NOTICE OF SCHOOL CLOSURE - UPDATED 3/20/2020

 
As per Governor Murphy’s Executive Order 104, “All public, private, and parochial preschool program premises, and elementary and secondary schools, including charter and renaissance schools, shall be closed to students beginning on Wednesday, March 18, 2020, and shall remain closed as long as this Order remains in effect.” Originally, on March 13th, I stated that we would be closed through March 27, 2020.  The Executive Order was issued March 17 and mandated for public schools, effective March 18, 2020.  As the situation pertaining to coronavirus continues to evolve, there is currently no clear date for schools to resume. Therefore, the district will remain closed until further notice.  Please note, when the time comes and the Governor provides clearance for schools to resume, prior to reopening and in consultation with representatives from the New Jersey Department of Education and our local health officer, we will assess all local factors, accordingly.
