BORDENTOWN TOWNSHIP, NJ-- Peter Muschal Elementary School in Bordentown Township is temporarily moving to all-remote learning due to a rise in positive COVID cases. 

In an e-mail posted on the school's website on Monday afternoon, Principal Megan Geibel wrote, "We are following the same September All Virtual learning until December 8," and attached the learning schedule for the "A" and "B" groups.

Peter Muschal Elementary serves students in Kindergarten through Third Grade. Most of the students reside in Bordentown Township and Fieldsboro. 

In a letter to district families last week, Bordentown Regional School District Superintendent Dr. Edward J. Forsthoffer told parents to begin to prepare themselves for “possible disruptions” in the school schedule.

Forsthoffer noted that the district as a whole was so far able to avoid going full-remote due to the fact that positive COVID cases were spread throughout the schools as opposed to congregating in a single building.

"We have been fortunate, but I am not sure how long that will last," he said. "As much as I am an optimist, case numbers continue to rise. Back in March, parents were notified on a Friday evening that school buildings would be closed on Monday. It is not unthinkable that this could occur again,” he said.
