DENVILLE, NJ – Denville Public Schools Superintendent Steven Forte notified the community on Fri Nov 20 that Riverview Elementary, Lakeview Elementary and Valleyview Middle schools will teach in a fully virtual environment through at least Nov 25 with the earliest possible opening being Nov 30. He noted that the New Jersey Department of Health had moved Morris County into the high range on its COVID Activity Level Report posted for Nov 14. Morris County was last in the high range on the COVID Activity Level Report posted for May 16, six months ago. During the intervening six months, the county had landed in the low or moderate ranges.
