On March 15, 2020, I informed you of the joint decision in Burlington County to close schools until April 20
. Since then, the Governor ordered all schools to be closed “indefinitely.” New Jersey Commissioner of Education Repollet stated he and the governor will not assess “the reopening of schools until at least April 17, 2020, at the earliest.” The buildings remain closed with no access for staff and students. Essential personnel will continue to operate the district as needed.
Enduring weeks without a regular school routine and social interaction can be overwhelming. Please know that we are doing our very best to make decisions that are in the best interest of our students, teachers and families. We miss our students, families and the activities that keep us close as a school community.
Throughout this closure period, school lunches are being made available to eligible families. Also, approval was granted by the Department of Education to provide special education related services via telecommunication to eligible students.
Thank you for your support, encouragement and dedication as we continue to educate our students together.
Dr. Christine Vespe
Superintendent of Schools
