At the request of the Union County Superintendent of Schools, and in light of Gov. Murphy’s request that travel be limited to essential services after 8 p.m., the Board of Education has decided to postpone tonight’s planned public meeting.

We are tentatively hoping to re-schedule the meeting for 3 p.m. on Wednesday afternoon, and looking at options to both ensure public participation and meet the requirements of state law. It’s possible this will be a virtual meeting. Please keep an eye on Springfield Schools website for more information soon.

As we’re facing this unprecedented situation, we understand everyone is experiencing stress and anxiety. We want to take a moment to express our gratitude to this district’s remarkable staff. We have asked a lot of our teachers, principals, building and central office staff in the last few days, and they have delivered with professionalism and grace. Thank you.

We wish all of you continued strength as we get through this difficult time. We look forward to turning the page on this chapter, and seeing one another face-to-face very soon.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Board of Education President Marc Miller at mmiller@springfieldschools.com.

Stay well,

The Springfield BOE
