Princeton public schools continue remote learning

The Princeton Public Schools will continue remote learning for students at least through April 17, Superintendent of Schools Steve Cochrane said on March 24.

It is possible that remote learning, which began on March 16 and was expected to end on March 27, could continue beyond April 17, Cochrane said.

Remote learning was instituted in response to Gov. Phil Murphy’s executive order earlier this month that closed schools indefinitely in an effort to slow down the spread of COVID-19.

“I don’t know when schools will be officially allowed to reopen, but I do know that staff and families are looking for guidance beyond March 27, which will mark the end of our initial period of remote learning,” Cochrane said.

The superintendent said schools and offices are all operating remotely. The school district buildings are open on a very limited basis and only to essential employees. Questions or requests should be emailed to district personnel, he said.

Cochrane also said that families whose economic circumstances have changed in the past few weeks may apply for federally funded meals for their children, based on their income.

Information on the free and reduced price lunch program is available at under the Resources and Notices tab. The district has been distributing breakfast and lunch to students who are enrolled in the program.
