In order to slow the spread of coronavirus in New Jersey, Governor Phil Murphy announced the closure of ALL public and private schools in the state, effective Wednesday.
All pre-K through grade 12 schools – public, private, and parochial – and all colleges and universities will close until health officials deem it safe for classes to resume.
Lakewood School District Attorney Michael Inzelbuch tells TLS the District will shut as of Tuesday.
Nonpublic schools will still be open Tuesday, and busing will continue.
Murphy said that he has worked to ensure that the overall educational and individual needs of students will be met during this closure, including home instruction and continued access to free and reduced meals for students.
