“Our administrators, supervisors, directors, and support staff have returned to full time workdays on Monday, March 1st. We will be welcoming teachers and staff to teach from the classroom starting Monday, March 15th,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. George Solter said in an update for parents earlier this month.

“At this time, we are planning for students to return on April 19th with details to be determined on the schedule for the hours and days in the near future.”

A parent survey was due on March 7th asking parents if they planned on sending their children back to school or to continue learning remotely.

Additionally, Solter thanked the North Bergen BOE staff for their hard work and efforts during the COVID-19 pandemic.

With Gov. Phil Murphy (D) adding teachers and staff to the list of people eligible for the COVID-19 vaccination, school districts across the state are preparing for students to return.

In Jersey City, students may go back to school as soon as April 22nd, while Bayonne has set May 3rd as their target date for resuming in-person learning.

Additionally, Secaucus students already began heading back to their classrooms last week.
