DENVILLE, NJ – Denville Public Schools Superintendent Steven Forte announced a two-hour delayed opening for students in grades pre-K–8 for Wed., March 11, “[i]n light of the growing concern around the coronavirus and the guidance from the NJ Department of Health.” Staff will adhere to their regular schedule.

In his announcement, Forte emphasized that the delayed opening in no way related to any cases of the virus in the Denville area. “[I]t is meant to provide our staff with time to prepare for the possibility of a Department of Health directed long-term school closure,” he stated.

According to Forte, this is the first time the “NJ Department of Education will allow schools to operate in a nontraditional manner in the case of a long-term closure. Schools will be permitted to provide continuity of instruction via technology and other means with an approved plan.”
