MONTVILLE, NJ – Governor Murphy announced May 4 that in-person instruction for New Jersey schools has been shut down for the rest of the school year.

In a letter emailed to Montville Township students and parents, Superintendent of Schools René Rovtar said that while the decision is difficult to accept, it is of course for the health and safety of students, employees and families.

She said that because that decision has been finalized, it sets into motion the planning needed towards graduation for the senior class, calculation and return of any balances for subscription busing, cafeteria balances, and MEDLC (after-school care) payments, the year-end collection of school materials and Chromebooks, the cleanout of lockers and desks, and the adjustment to the calendar of unused snow days.
