Students in Camden city schools will return to remote learning when classes resume after winter break on Jan. 3. Online schooling will last two weeks, with a return to in-person learning scheduled for Jan. 18.
In a letter to parents on Wednesday, Superintendent Katrina McCombs wrote that the Camden City School District’s top priority is the safety of students and staff as COVID-19 cases surge in New Jersey and the region.
“The rising number of COVID-19 and omicron cases is of great concern for all of us, and we believe full, remote learning is the right choice at this time,” McCombs wrote.
Free meals will still be provided for all students during the two weeks of remote learning. The district also will offer free COVID-19 vaccinations every Tuesday at Dudley Family School.
The following schedule for meals distribution will be used during this remote-learning period:
Monday, Jan. 3, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 2 p.m.
Wednesday, Jan. 5, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 2 p.m.
Tuesday, Jan. 11, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 2 p.m.
Thursday, Jan. 14, 10 a.m. to noon and 1 to 2 p.m.
