BRIELLE — Like many other small towns in New Jersey, Brielle suffered tremendously during the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the quarantine, local events beloved by residents were cancelled in 2020.

However, Brielle returned somewhat back to normal over the past year, 2021.

Students at Brielle Elementary School returned to full days on campus beginning March 8, the re-entry plan’s stage five, in which students were in their classrooms from 8:10 a.m. to 3 p.m., five days a week.
