Schools in Monroe Township, New Jersey will reopen on Tuesday after parents and children have been in limbo this week over the mold concerns.

There have been no classes all week, and parents have complained there has been little to no communication from the district administration since a meeting on Monday.

It's been making it hard for a lot of families.

Patti Merseles of Williamstown, NJ said, "I have this kid here. He's trying to do the right thing, he wants to get an after school job."

Friday, Marseles and her son Joe Murphy wanted to pick up working papers so he can get that job.

But they had no luck with everything closed.

Today Action News tried e-mailing and calling, and we even tried to meet with school board members or any administrators at their headquarters on Academy Street, but we were told, "The superintendent isn't here at the moment."

For a district that has 6300 plus students, you can bet a lot of plans have been altered or ruined.

Regina Becciv of Williamstown said, "I couldn't imagine parents that have work that count on their children to be in school, I would be infuriated."

The parents Action News spoke to just want transparency, a solution and more community involvement moving forward.

"Regular checks, regulations, accountability," Marseles said.

"I hope that the town gets together, maybe goes to more school board meetings, instead of times of just when they feel it's needed," said Don Saia of Williamstown.

Late Friday afternoon, the school superintendent informed teachers, parents, and children that the schools will reopen on Tuesday.

However, Holly Glen Elementary will remain closed.
