Those in two other districts are free to play in the snow, however, as the storm added another variable to pandemic-scrambled district schedules.
• “Due to the number of students/staff currently out due to COVID related issues and in consultation with the Monmouth County Health Department, the Red Bank Borough Public Schools will pivot to a full-remote schedule” Friday, a notice on the district website said. “We anticipate reopening for in-person learning on Monday, January 10.”
The district took an emergency day Monday, on what was to have been the first day back following the winter break, because of a large number of anticipated staff absences, Superintendent Jared Rumage said.
• For the Red Bank Charter School and Fair Haven’s two schools, Friday is a snow day, thanks to the first snowfall of 2022 on the Greater Red Bank Green, which left about three inches by 5:30 a.m.
“Have fun and be safe!” said a message on the charter school website.
• As previously reported, Red Bank Regional High was already on an all-remote schedule this week because of “a severe uptick in virus transmission rates,” according to Superintendent Lou Moore.
• Little Silver schools were already using a schedule of half-day remote learning this week, also because of the COVID-19 virus.
The snowfall was forecast to end by 10 a.m., giving way to sunshine and temperatures in the mid-30s, according to the National Weather Service.
