Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco released the following statement regarding the closure of all school districts in the county:
” After consulting with Executive Leadership of the Bergen County Association of School Administrators and our County Health Officer, I have decided to have all 75 public school districts in Bergen County transition from on-site learning to off-site internet-based and/or paper-based distance learning until further notice, effective tomorrow at 3 P.M.
With the continuing spread of COVID-19 throughout Bergen County, it is imperative that we take action and do everything in our power to protect our 1 million residents.
This includes our 75 school districts which have almost 170,000 children; 16,000 teachers; and hundreds and hundreds of administrative, custodial and support staff.
Bergen County Health & Safety Hotline: (201) 225-7000”.
