Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to the Extended Learning Resource Page. Schools will be closed from Tuesday, March 17 – Friday, March 27. Additional information and daily updates can be found on the district’s COVID-19 Resource Page found at https://www.orange.k12.nj.us/domain/3058.
As all of us try to predict and prepare for how COVID-19 will affect our health, our families, our jobs, and our communities, we know that students, parents, and teachers are facing new and unique responsibilities and challenges with little information or advance planning.
I am developing a page of resources where you can refer to now, and keep coming back to, for advice and information to help you in the planning and conduct of remote, online learning.
I will be available daily to answer any questions you may have please see my virtual office hours below as well as my contact information so that I can assist you and provide you with technology support. To speak with me directly please feel free to call me during my office hours.
