NJ school delayed openings, closings, early dismissals


Effective Wednesday, March 18, under a state order, all New Jersey schools will close their facilities for a minimum of two weeks because of the ongoing novel coronavirus concern º though state officials expect they may well extend the closures for weeks more.

Most schools have distributed materials to parents for home instruction and/or online instruction. As of Friday, March 13, more than 400 had closed on their own. The following closures had been reported by that point:
