BRICK TOWNSHIP — Students in grades K through 12 will receive full-time in-person learning beginning Tuesday, June 1, the Brick Township Public School District has announced.

The move to five full days of on-site classes constitutes “Phase Four” of the school district’s COVID-19 recovery plan, which has incrementally increased in-person instruction throughout the past school year.

“The planning and logistics of implementing this final phase was a huge undertaking,” Superintendent of Schools Thomas Farrell said in an online statement uploaded to the district’s website on Friday, May 14, which thanked district departments for their collaborative efforts in making Phase Four a reality.


“I write this communique with such gratitude and appreciation for our amazing staff who continue to put students first,” Superintendent Farrell wrote. “Brick Schools has been at the forefront during this pandemic leading local education back to a somewhat sense of normalcy, and it is because of our stellar staff and caring community. THANK YOU again parents for being so supportive.”
