“The school district will re-evaluate this plan with an expectation for an October 1st move to Hybrid Learning (In-person & Remote Instruction) provided that the data supports this decision,” they tweeted this morning.

“The full Virtual/Remote Learning Plan will be announced next week. This plan will include information regarding students’ Virtual Instruction Schedule, Expectations for Students, Parents, & Staff, Equitable Access to Technology, Special and Related Services, as well as lunch.”

The 2020-2021 scholastic year is set to commence on September 8th.

North Bergen is the third public school district in Hudson County to announce intentions to begin the school year via virtual learning only, following Bayonne and Jersey City.

These learning plans are expected to become the norm throughout the state, after Gov. Phil Murphy (D) gave the green light yesterday.

However, there are two caveats: a district much show they can meet all health and safety standards upon the return of students and staff, along with an anticipated date to return to the classrooms.
