Two Lavallette Elementary classes go virtual prior to spring break


LAVALLETTE — Second-grade and seventh-grade students at Lavallette Elementary transitioned to a fully-remote learning schedule this week, after an unreported number of individuals tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The school’s second-grade and seventh-grade classes received virtual instruction from Monday through Wednesday. School officials made the announcement in letters to parents published online earlier this week.

“This decision is necessary for contact tracing purposes and to ensure the safety of the school community in alignment with the COVID-19 health guidelines,” school counselor Susan Misdom said. “These three days of remote learning, coupled with the upcoming spring break period will give use the appropriate quarantining period to safely return to school on Monday, April 12.”


Spring break at Lavallette Elementary begins Friday, April 2. Thursday, April 1, was a regular day of virtual learning at the school, according to Superintendent Peter Morris.
