Schools announcement coming early next week, Murphy says

By Nikita Biryukov, May 01 2020 3:10 pm

Gov. Phil Murphy will announce whether New Jersey’s schools will continue remote learning operations through the end of the school year early next week.

“We’ll give you word early week, my hope is on Monday, as to what we’re going to do about schools,” Murphy said during Friday’s COVID-19 briefing.

Schools will continue to offer classes remotely until at least May 15, though Murphy declined to provide any information about how schools will operate past then on Friday.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Friday announced that his state’s schools would not resume in-person classes this year.
