We're All In This Together

October 26, 2020


Dear ERESC Stakeholders/Partners,


In keeping with the requirements of the ERESC School Re-opening Plan, we have committed to providing monthly updates regarding plans to transition from remote instruction to a hybrid in-person model. As stated  previously, at various intervals we wanted to review information provided by health experts. the NJ Department of Education, Governor's Office and our schools' stakeholders to determine whether or not we could safely transition. After the most recent review of available information, the Commission's leadership has once again determined that we must continue the current school year with both staff and students working remotely. Should future circumstances support a move from remote to in-person school attendance, Commission leadership will address the matter in our next monthly update scheduled to occur on or before 11/26/2020.


In closing, I remain extremely grateful for your commitment and continued support of our students and families. As we continue to navigate the on-going pandemic, I want to encourage you to remain vigilant with efforts to stay safe and healthy. We are in this together!


Yours in education,

Dr. Laurie W. Newell
