PLAINFIELD, NJ - Following Governor Murphy's daily press conference announcing that public schools would remain closed until May 15th, Plainfield's Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Diana Mitchell followed suit and issued a letter to parents and students. 

According to Murphy, “We need to be guided by where the facts on the ground, science, and public health take us,” Murphy said, added that the state would reassess whether institutions and school sports — which were ordered to pause in-person operations exactly a month ago — would have the capability to resume as normal.
