• School Closure Effective Tuesday, March 17th

    • Over the weekend, several districts in Atlantic County and entire counties throughout the State have made the decision to close schools.  The Governor has indicated that closing schools statewide is imminent.

    • On Saturday, March 14th, Atlantic County Superintendents, along with the director of the Atlantic County Department of Health and the Atlantic County Executive Superintendent, participated in a conference call.  We discussed the pros and cons of closure and also reviewed information provided by the Center for Disease Control and Department of Health.

    • In an effort to join together to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, we have made the decision to close schools effective Tuesday, March 17, 2020. The closure will last until Thursday, April 9, 2020. As per our calendar, Spring Break is from April 10th through Friday, April 17th. At this point, students will return to school on Monday, April 20th. We will confirm this with you at that time or advise you that an extended closure is needed.

    • This means that school is open Monday, March 16, 2020 and we strongly encourage you to have your children attend. Our administrators, teachers, and support staff will be providing students with additional guidance and reassurance about the closure. We believe this will help the children with this unprecedented school closing.
