Will Livingston Offer Only All-Remote Learning? Discussion Continues on Return to School Options

The morning of August 12, prior to the evening’s Board of Education meeting, Governor Phil Murphy announced that districts might be allowed to offer only all-remote learning.

To do so, a district will need to meet certain criteria and show the state Department of Education why all-remote learning was necessary. Until then, Murphy had required all school districts to offer some form of in-person learning.

How that announcement might impact the district’s reopening plan was on the minds of the Board members and meeting attendees on August 12. Answers, however, were not forthcoming.

Township Council Talks Utility Frustrations, Passes Resolutions, Proposes Ordinances

At the Monday, August 17, meeting of the Livingston Township Council, members discussed the response to tropical storm Isaias, which left many residents without power for several days. Four ordinances were also proposed and several resolutions were passed during the meeting, which was once again held online and may be viewed at the Livingston Township, NJ Facebook page.

At the start of the meeting, the Council moved to a closed session to discuss matters on the agenda. Later in the meeting, during public comment, Justin Alpert of 56 Amherst Place questioned the abundance of closed session items, specifically asking for broad details about the potential tax deal with Saint Barnabas Medical Center and why discussions about a social justice committee must be held behind closed doors.

Township clean-up efforts in the wake of Tropical Storm Isaias last Tuesday, August 4, began in earnest on Monday, August 10, said Mike Anello, superintendent of Public Works.

Anello explained that in the days immediately after the storm, Department of Public Works (DPW) crews focused on clearing trees that had come down, and cleaning up “hot spots” where power lines were down so Public Service Electric and Gas (PSE&G) could access the areas to make repairs.

“Cooped Up” During the Quarantine, Family Creates a Home for Chickens

“Cooped Up” During the Quarantine, Family Creates a Home for Chickens
“Cooped Up” During the Quarantine, Family Creates a Home for Chickens

Five hens now call an old playground in Livingston their home, after Ivan Bolanos and his daughter, Dana, built a chicken coop using parts of the old set, during the COVID-19 quarantine this spring.

Confined at home, Dana was able to fulfill her childhood dream for a pet that would be hers alone – since Timmy, the family dog, is, well, a shared family pet. Her parents charged her with looking into what she wanted and how she would take care of it.

The 15-year-old researched everything she could find about chickens, from what they eat to which breeds are good for the local weather, and presented the information to her parents.

A Staged Approach: Livingston Plans to Start School Year With Hybrid & All-Remote Programs

As the new school year is set to begin amid the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, families will need to choose whether their children will begin the school year fully or partially remote, according to the district.

The selection needs to be made by Monday, August 17, and there will likely be a process in place to later change the initial choice. The first day of school is Tuesday, September 8.

Students in the all-virtual model will receive both synchronous lessons delivered by the teacher, and asynchronous online lessons. They will be able to connect with their classmates remotely.
