Ridgewood NJ, Ridgewood Schools have taken a slow but steady approach to reopening schools with appropriate incremental steps. Because the district proceeded with caution, there have been minimal interruptions due to classroom and building closures. The future looks promising, as vaccinations become more widely available and public health guidance begins to shift.
Governor Phil Murphy announced on Monday that upon the conclusion of this school year, portions of Executive Order 175 allowing remote learning will be rescinded, meaning that schools will be required to provide full-day, in-person instruction, as they were prior to the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency.
Ridgewood Schools will launch full day in-person instruction staring in September of 2021.
