MONTVILLE, NJ – School Superintendent René Rovtar announced that other than the one-day shutdown on Monday, March 16, it’s business as usual in Montville schools.

“The COVID-19 situation continues to be a fluid one, with new information continuing to be shared,” Rovtar wrote in an email to parents and staff. “I remain in contact with the New Jersey Department of Education and the Montville Township Board of Health. Over the next day, you will hear that a number of districts in Morris County and throughout the state have made a decision to close for a period of two to four weeks beginning tomorrow or Monday, March 16. Based on the current status, with the advice of the health officials, we do not believe that a closure is necessary at this time. The district will still be closed for students on Monday, March 16. We anticipate reopening for students on Tuesday, March 17.”

Rovtar wrote that planned extracurricular and athletic activities will continue.
