The West New York School District became the fifth in Hudson County today to announce plans to open the academic year will all students receiving instruction virtually. Superintendent Clara Brito Herrera made the announcement in a letter tp parents and guardians:
On Wednesday, August 12, Governor Murphy announced new guidelines regarding how, and when, school buildings can reopen doors for students this fall. As discussed earlier this month at the Board of Education meeting, our reopening plans are flexible and are subject to change based on new information coming from the State Department of Education. In consultation with our Central Office Administration, President Parkinson, and the Board of Education, we will be temporarily adjusting our reopening plan for all West New York students to begin the school year remotely. We have provided the community with a comprehensive reopening plan that will now be phased in throughout the school year. As more guidelines are released from the State, we will ensure that West New York is in full compliance. As always, safety and instruction are at the forefront of all decisions we make. Additional details will be provided in the near future. Please remember to visit our district website and social media platforms for updates from the West New York School District.
