Monmouth Regional High School in Tinton Falls is switching back to all virtual learning after what they
say is an outbreak of COVID-19, pointing at least some of the blame for the closure directly at parents.
Andrew Teeple writes, “Because of a
party and the unwillingness of parents to cooperate in our contact tracing
efforts, we are forced to suspend all in-person activities. I apologize to
those parents and students who continue to make sacrifices so we can move
It is unknown how many students contracted COVID-19,
but the superintendent did say maintaining a healthy and safe environment
becomes an impossible task without everyone’s commitment.
School will remain closed
from today until April 19 and be on an all virtual platform. All sports and
activities are scheduled to resume Friday, April 2.
