RANDOLPH, NJ- Randolph Township Schools has returned to school in this fall of 2020 with “Hybrid” instruction. After months of planning, all reports from the school remain positive, as the community has come together to protect the health and safety of families and school personnel and teachers. The first week of school was proof of this.
Superintendent Jennifer Fano said, “Through our collective efforts, we will continue to rely on one another as we navigate this hybrid approach for the very first time together. Regardless of whether your child attends school in person or remotely, we have created options and resources to meet the needs of every individual student. As always, our educators will continue to go above and beyond to ensure that every child in Randolph has the support they need to thrive. We can overcome any obstacle when we are united.”
An 8th grade parent expressed that , “It's different. So far my son does like hybrid learning. He likes the variety the environment (home one day and in school the other). Getting the schedule is still a work in progress.”
"It was great", a new Kindergarten student expressed . I" like my teacher Ms. "G". And I made a new friend on the bus". He also said he hopes he can see the other rooms in the school he is sad he hasn't been able to explore it.
Fano also expressed, "The safety and well-being of our learning community has and will continue to be our top priority. I am thankful for our custodial, health, and maintenance teams who have worked diligently for months to ensure the safe return of our learning community. It’s an important reminder that guidance from the state can shift and change at any time. Families should always be prepared for the possibility of fully remote instruction. We have and will continue to enhance remote instruction through staff professional development and training. For our students returning in person, families continue to have the flexibility to choose a fully remote learning plan at any time. If for whatever reason remote learning is identified as a better option for your child, we will accommodate that request for the remainder of the marking period.
