A group of South Orange Maplewood families have planned a rally Saturday to protest schools closed to in person learning. Now a group in Montclair has announced they will also rally this Saturday, December 12, at 10 a.m., joining other locations around the country and New Jersey holding Open Schools Weekend rallies.
According to the group Montclair Families Advocating for In Person Learning (FAIL), they will rally to open schools for full time in-person learning January 4th, 2021. Montclair Schools had announced they would not open until January 25 at the earliest, starting with elementary and special education students.
The rally is part of a national Rally to Open Schools Weekend happening in multiple locations around the country, including other towns in New Jersey.
Montclair FAIL invites Montclair Public School students, families, teachers and staff to attend.
In order to social distance, groups will gather at multiple locations in central areas around Montclair. These locations are Edgemont Park along Valley Road, Porter Park and the corner of Bloomfield Avenue and North Mountain Avenue by the Montclair Art Museum.
