School districts throughout the state are pausing in-person instruction because of cases of coronavirus among staff and students.

In some cases, the switch to all-remote classes is temporary, but many districts have opted to go remote through January. And some districts have only had to send home students from one school, where the cases of COVID-19 were found, while students at other schools in that district continued in-person learning.

The state does not maintain a public list of the schools or districts that have had to close down, but on Sept. 30 it launched a dashboard that identifies counties, number of schools and cases that were transmitted in school buildings or through school activities. Currently, 88 schools have had a total of 388 cases.

The state Department of Health issued guidelines for schools on how to handle positive cases, when to ask students to quarantine and when schools need to switch to remote learning.
Among the recommendations is to shut down the school if two or more people in multiple classrooms get sick within 14 days and a clear connection between the cases cannot be easily identified.
“Closure is a local decision that should be made by school administrators in consultation with local public health,” the state guidelines say.

Here are the districts that are currently doing remote-only learning because of COVID-19 cases.:

Atlantic County:

Pleasantville: The district will be fully virtual until the last week of January.

Bergen County

Bergen County: All four Bergen County Technical High School campuses will do remote learning only until at least Jan. 15.

Elmwood Park: All schools in the district are remote from Nov. 19 until Jan 11.
North Arlington: The district moved up its plan to go fully remote from Nov. 30 to Nov. 23 because an individual at North Arlington High School tested positive for the virus. The district will remain remote through Jan. 18.
