Due to the weather forecast and anticipated power/internet outages that would impact both teachers and students, Woodbridge Township School District will have asynchronous instruction on Thursday, December 17, 2020. Teachers are posting assignments today in preparation for Thursday and will be providing instructions as to what needs to be completed. Assignments posted for Thursday will be due on Sunday, December 20, 2020, to allow time to submit if power/internet is down. As with other asynchronous days, student attendance will be contingent upon their completion of assignments. Student attendance will default to present. If the assignment is not submitted by Sunday, December 20, 2020, attendance can be switched to absent. We are planning for live, synchronous instruction on Friday, December 18, 2020.
