Dear Camden City School District Community:


I am writing to update you on the Camden City School District’s reopening plan for September. Over the past few months, our District Reopening Task Force has considered several learning models including remote and hybrid options. The task force has also examined cleaning, testing, and procedure changes that align with best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and state and local health authorities. With our most important priority being the health and safety of our students and staff, the planning process is ongoing.

Thank you to our families, staff and community members for participating in our survey. The feedback you provided has helped inform the District Task Force’s reopening plans which is aligned to the guidance from the CDC and the “The Road Back,” New Jersey Department of Education’s guidelines released on June 26, 2020.

As we move closer to the first day of school on September 3, we welcome continued feedback that will help us deliver on our promise to provide a safe and high quality-learning environment for all Camden students and staff. To this end, we will share the district’s proposed reopening plan at our virtual board meeting on July 28, 2020.

Not a day goes by where I am not grateful for the ongoing support and dedication shown by everyone during these unprecedented times. Thank you all for your commitment to our students, the district, and the community at-large.




Katrina T. McCombs, M.A.Ed., MPA

State District Superintendent
