PLAINFIELD, NJ — An advisory from the Plainfield Public School District was issued on Tuesday, noting classes for in-district students will not be held on Friday, March 13.  Teachers will meet to plan assignments for students in the event the district needs to close for an extended period of time due to COVID-19 concerns.

According to the advisory, the district is in the process of canceling and/or postponing all out-of-state travel for both students and staff.  School principals, coaches, and sponsors are encouraged to postpone large “indoor” event gatherings as not to expose our students to any viruses.
