Bayonne Superintendent of Schools John Niesz announced on Friday that effective Monday, May 3, the Bayonne School District will return to in-person instruction. He made the announcement in a letter to parents and the Bayonne School Community.
Niesz stated, “As we plan for our students’ return we will send a parent survey on Monday, March 15, 2021. The results of the survey will inform us on how many students will return to in-person instruction and what model of hybrid instruction we will offer. Parents will continue to have the right to continue all remote learning for their child.”
Superintendent Niesz thanked Mayor Jimmy Davis, the City Council, and the Board of Education Trustees fir their assistance in announcing that all Board of Education employees are being offered the COVID-19 vaccine. “The time frame of vaccinations will allow our employees o be fully vaccinated by our opening date. This along with all of our safety precautions (air filters, personal protective equipment, desk dividers, social distancing, aggressive cleaning protocols, etc.) will allow us to return safely to a hybrid model that will allow social distancing for the remainder of the school year,” stated Niesz.
