Citing Staffing Concerns, Livingston Schools Will Begin Year With All-Remote Learning

Livingston will begin the school year with all-remote learning, superintendent Matthew Block announced at the August 19 Board of Education meeting. Hundreds of people watched the four hour meeting, which was held online via Zoom and shown on Facebook Live. More than 50 people spoke during the meeting, and many more commented about it on Facebook.

While indicating that Livingston will remain in a full remote format “until we are able to effectively engage our teachers,” Block said that the district will work to bring students back to the schools, which he began to outline in a letter to families on August 24.

“It is our hope that, before the end of September, we can... begin with some of our special education programs and our youngest elementary school grade levels. We ultimately want to bring all grade levels back for in-person learning.

All-Remote Learning

In the end, it appears we will end up where many expected us to start this new school year, after all.

Following Governor Phil Murphy’s announcement allowing all-remote learning to start the year for districts that can prove such a move is necessary, the Livingston Board of Education announced last week that the district will begin the 2020-21 school year doing just that. Livingston is not alone in this decision; according to Governor Murphy, as of Monday, 156 New Jersey school districts planned to start the year in all-remote fashion. The move is not surprising, as there is not a district in New Jersey that should have trouble justifying the risk schools pose in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. We need look no further than Georgia’s schools to see how quickly the situation can unravel.

“Army of Volunteers” Sought for Wellness Initiative

“Army of Volunteers” Sought for Wellness Initiative

With the hope of creating something positive out of the COVID-19 pandemic, a group of five Livingston women - Mariann Cullen, Nicole Dockx, Laura Goren, Amy Hochberg, and Neeli Margolis - are forming a grass roots wellness initiative to assist Livingston students and families. They call it “LivWell 07039.”

“Our goal is to offer our students and teachers a catalogue of free wellness group classes - ranging from emotional learning, arts, yoga/movement and meditation,” explains Margolis. “We anticipate that most classes will be held remotely, but hope to hold some in-person yoga and movement classes.”

Toward that end, they are seeking volunteers who would be willing to donate a minimum of one hour per week to teach a four to six week class.
