Washington Township students to begin hybrid learning Thursday after gathering prompted delay

High school students will continue virtual learning Monday as the Washington Township High School addresses concerns surrounding a student party.

Washington Township High School students will begin returning to their classrooms Thursday after reports of a student party delayed the start of hybrid learning earlier this week.

Washington Township School District sent a letter home to parents over the weekend explaining that classes for high school students would remain virtual to start the week.

In the letter, the school district officials say they received reports that seniors attended a 'large gathering' where most students were ignoring social distancing protocols and not wearing masks. 

High school students were scheduled to begin returning to the school part-time Monday, as part of the district's hybrid learning model.

The school continued to ask parents to remain vigilant and keep children home if they do not feel well or have even minor symptoms.
