BBOE Announces Virtual Learning Will Continue Through At Least End of March Due to COVID Spread in 2 Buildings Among Staff

The Bayonne School District has announced that students will continue to learn virtually through at least the end of March.  In a letter to parents on Friday, Superintendent of Schools John Niesz said the COVID-19 pandemic, the availability of vaccines and the preparation of buildings within the District will impact when schools will reopen and normal operations will resume.

Niesz wrote, “Currently we have two buildings closed due to COVID-19 spread between staff even with the very limited number of people in the schools. Although we can all see the light at the end of the tunnel, we are not there yet.

We continue to monitor the situation and as we adjust the timeline, we will notify you as soon as possible.”

The Superintendent added that the Board of Education’s “biggest concern” is opening the schools as soon as it is safe for everyone.
