Dear Hackensack Public Schools Community,

Effective Friday, October 30, the Hackensack Public District will be operating remotely until further notice. Based on the recommendations from our local health officials in conjunction with the state epidemiologist, it has been determined that in the best interest of public health, Hackensack Public Schools will remain closed to in-person instruction due to the high positivity rate of infection in the city of Hackensack.

It is important to note that we will continue to follow our current remote schedule until further notice. The planned schedule changes have been postponed.

Please note:

  • All Athletics and extracurricular activities are also suspended until further notice.

  • Meal Service will continue to follow the current schedule

  • If you are in need of technical support, please contact the helpdesk via email at tech@hackensackschools.org. Walk up hours are temporarily suspended.

We will continue to monitor this situation closely in conjunction with the health department and provide you with timely updates. Our hope is that once the spread is contained, we can return to in-person learning in a safe and positive way.

We understand this is a disappointment for many; however, this decision is being made in the best interest of public health for our schools and community.


Robert Sanchez, Superintendent of Schools
