    **School Closure Update**

    Please be reminded that on Monday, May 4, 2020, Governor Phil Murphy ordered the closure of all NJ schools through the end of SY 2019-2020. We will continue to work together in the effort of ensuring that distance learning is working well for all students within our district. We are committed to the instructional and social emotional supports daily.

    The purpose of this communication is to provide an update on a school closure date scheduled for next Friday, May 22, 2020. What this means is that distance learning will not take place on Friday, May 22nd for students and staff. As you are aware, Memorial Day is on Monday, May 25th. With that being said, I am instituting a school closure day so all families and staff can have an extended weekend. As mentioned, self- care is so important, and this is the perfect time to reconnect with family.

     

     

    Teacher will post assignments on teacher's website AND Class Dojo. There will be one assignment for each subject per day. Students are expected to complete the given assignment by the end of each day.  Parents are expected to take a picture of the completed work and send in a PRIVATE MESSAGE to the teacher on Class Dojo to be assessed by the teacher OR post in the child's portfolio under the activity.
