     The Orange Public Schools Expectations for Emergency At-home Instruction


    Dear Parents and Students,

    Welcome to the Extended Learning Resource Page. This page was created to provide students working from home with access to assignments, links, assessments, and practice resources. Schools will continue to be closed until the end of the year as per Governor Murphy's mandated school closure, therefore Distance Learning will continue until then. Distance Learning will not be in effect from May 22nd through May 25th. 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.


    I will be available daily to answer any questions you may have. My virtual Office Hours are as follows:

    9:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m.

    1:00 p.m.-3:00 p.m.

    I may be online at different times of the day outside of these hours, however. 


    Should you have any questions about assignments, you can contact me through the following channels:
