BERKLEY HEIGHTS, NJ. — Teachers across the district continue to express concern over in-classroom safety as COVID-19 cases continue to spike state-wide.
Thursday’s Board of Education meeting agenda contains five pages of correspondence featuring emails and letters. Within the listed correspondence are approximately 180 articles with the title, “Protect Students: Make School Remote until January.”
The last meeting in November featured teachers speaking during the public portion of the meeting. They expressed fear for themselves and their students as COVID-19 trended upward — into the Thanksgiving holiday.
In more news, the district will honor long serving Berkeley Heights Board of Education members Bill Cassano, Dr. Gerry Crisonino and Dante Gioia for their service. The board will also approve the 2021 spring sports programs and 2021-22 school calendar pending a vote Thursday night.
The next meeting will be held virtually tomorrow, 7:30 p.m, Thursday, Dec. 3, via zoom.
