CRANFORD - Cranford Public Schools will be implementing its Emergency Education Plan (Home Instructional Distance Learning) beginning Monday, March 16 through Friday, March 27, according to a letter to the community Friday morning.

This decision was made in collaboration with the Township Health Officer, Mike Fitzpatrick. The district assures the Cranford community that there has not been a confirmed case of COVID-19 within the Cranford Public Schools. 

The main entrances of all school buildings will be open on Monday, March 16, from 8:00 a.m. until 8 p.m., in order to give students time to collect any belongings they may need for a prolonged closure. Students should also be sure to remove any perishable items from their lockers during this time. Chromebooks will also be available on Monday at your child’s respective school for those who requested them.

Some events may be rescheduled for future dates once schools are reopened. The situation will be evaluated each week and, if necessary, the home instruction period may be extended. 

Parents and guardians can expect further information regarding the home instructional plan, including procedures for Monday’s pick-up of materials, from their child’s respective principal.
