Dear Mendham Borough School Community:

After thoughtful consideration, communication with the local health department and discussions with colleagues throughout Morris County and the State, Mendham Borough School District will be closed beginning Monday, March 16 through March 27. We will then continue with our Spring Break from March 30 through April 3. Schools will reopen on Monday, April 6.

Today you received a letter from your school principal with information regarding our Teaching and Learning Plan due to a health-related closure. The implementation of our plan will begin on Monday, March 16. During this time, schools will be locked and only accessible to select District personnel.

As this is a new undertaking, I am aware that there may be some lessons learned throughout the process. Your patience and understanding is greatly appreciated as we work together to ensure the safety of our students, staff and community.

I will continue to communicate with state, and local officials, and colleagues across our State as our entire region responds to new guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Communications will be sent out regularly with any new developments.  Please check our District website for new information from our local Health Department, CDC and District.


Dr. Mitzi N. Morillo
