Belmar Elementary School returns to in-person learning for the first time since last month

School districts around New Jersey are delaying the return to in-person learning until later this month, but many students are in the classroom today, including in Belmar.
Belmar Elementary School switched to virtual learning back on Dec. 9 after an employee tested positive, but today, the doors will swing open for over 400 students.
In a letter to parents, Superintendent David Hallman welcomed back the return of in-person learning, but also reminded students, parents, and staff that anyone who traveled outside of the immediate neighboring states must quarantine for two weeks and work or learn remotely from home.
Hallman also says any student awaiting results of a test must remain home. Some school districts decided to prolong the winter recess and return in two weeks to let any possible holiday spike of cases work their way through.
