CRANFORD - In a letter to the Cranford community Monday afternoon, Superintendent Scott Rubin announced that school playgrounds have been closed to discourage large groups, but parks and fields remain open for use.

Rubin's letter read,

"In partnership with the Township, the District would like to notify parents/guardians, students, and community members that, during this evolving situation,  parks and fields will remain open for their use. However, playgrounds are closed to discourage large groups of individuals. We recommend you maintain the CDC guidance of “social distancing” which includes maintaining separation (about 6 feet) between folks and practice proper hand hygiene. It’s particularly important for our students to be reminded of this important point.  We understand that some of these measures may seem unprecedented, but they are being done solely for the safety and well-being of our students and their families.  In this same vein, please be on the lookout for a message from the district tomorrow on social-emotional resources for you and your children to assist in addressing needs you may be experiencing at this time.
