Jersey City Public Schools Returns to Remote Instruction

January 3, 2022

Dear Parents & Families, 


Happy New Year! We hope you all are staying safe and healthy. As you are aware, the students will begin remote instruction on Tuesday, January 4, 2022. The current district plan is to reopen in-person on Monday, January 10, 2022. We will continue to keep you posted with the latest district updates and directives. 


REMOTE SPEECH THERAPY SERVICES WILL BEGIN ON WEDNESDAY,  JANUARY 5, 2022.

A letter containing your SLP's contact information and Zoom link will be posted on your child's Google Classroom and/or Classroom Dojo. Their speech schedule virtually will be the same as their in-person schedule. Please reach out to your SLP or your child's case manager with any questions. 

Thank you,

The Jersey City Public Schools
