***** Notice to parents and Students Effective  Date 05/11/2020****

    Dear Parents and Students
    I would like to inform you all of the happy news of my baby’s arrival and that I will consequently be going on maternity leave starting on May 11th, 2020. Barring any complications, I am planning to return to the classroom on October 14th, 2020. I will miss each one of my students while I am away on maternity leave, but trust that they will continue to thrive under the guidance of my substitute.
    In my absence, Mrs. Shireen Griffith will be teaching my classes. She is a certified teacher with the Orange Public School District. Mrs. Griffith's email address is griffish@orange.k12.nj.us. To access student's daily math assignments, you will be going to Mrs. Griffith's website instead of mines on a daily basis. At the bottom of this letter, I am also going to attach a link to Mrs. Griffith's website. However, you all can access her website the same way you would access mines. Just go to Mrs. Shireen Griffith on the Rosa Parks Faculty page. It's important to note that when you are sending work to be graded on class dojo, you send it in a private message to Mrs. Griffith who has now been added as a co-teacher on my class dojo.  I feel confident that she will be a good fit for the needs of my students. She also has my contact information if any help with the class is needed while I am gone.
    During my time of maternity leave, I will be happy to continue to answer emails and phone calls from students and parents. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to leave me a message by email tobiasro@orange.k12.nj.us I look forward to seeing you all again when I return to the classroom and returning to work with your children.
