CAMDEN, NJ — The Camden City School District (CCSD) announced Monday that closures will remain in effect for the foreseeable future.
"In compliance with Executive Order 104, signed by Governor Murphy on March 16, and readopted by Executive Order 107, signed on March 21, all elementary and secondary schools, including charter and renaissance schools, are to remain closed to students for as long as these orders remain in effect," the district said in a statement.
In Camden County, 41 cases have been confirmed and at least one death as of Monday. Cases in the Garden State have climbed to 2,844 and a total of 27 deaths.
The CCSD has continued to facilitate remote learning with the help of local partners including Camden Enrollment — which is currently working to launch a virtual classroom accessible to all in the area.
Families are currently being asked to fill out a survey by Friday regarding technology and internet access.
Tuesday's school board meeting has also been canceled, with details on the matters that were expected to be discussed not immediately available.
The CCSD said it will provide more updates — including information on meal distribution sites — on its website.
"We will get through this together," the district continued in an online post to families. "Thank you for your continued patience and understanding,"
