I would like to remind all parents that they need to call the school by 8:00 AM if their child is going to be absent or late for school. It is fine to let the teacher know that your child will be out, but you still must call the attendance line-732-264-5050 ext. 4003. If you have not called the school, I will be calling you or another adult on your child's emergency card to verify that your child is not in school. This is for the safety of your child.
PARENTS OF 5TH GRADE STUDENTS
Your child will need two immunizations to enter the 6th grade in September, 2016. These immunizations are: Tdap booster and meningococcal vaccine. Both of these are usually given on the 11th birthday. Please make a doctor's appointment for your child's eleventh birthday checkup and have the doctor administer these vaccines. Please bring or send the documentation that your child received the vaccines in to me by September 1, 2016. If your child's 11th birthday is after September 1, 2016, you may submit a doctor's appointment card to me by September 1, 2016, with the scheduled date for the immunizations. Please provide a copy of the immunizations to me upon the completion of the immunizations. I will be sending home reminder letters through out the school year. If you have any questions, please contact me at 732-264-5050 x4003. Thank you in advance for your cooperation with the state of New Jersey's immunization requirements.
School cafeterias across the state and country must meet new federal nutrition standards that make sure students receive well-balanced meals and all the nutrition they need to succeed in school. School meals will included a larger variety of fruits and vegetables, more whole grains, less salt and either fat free or 1% milk. The portion sizes will be appropriate for each age group. The NJ Dept. of Education with the NJ Dept. of Agriculture has created a parent resource that provides information about the new federal nutrition standards. This resource can be accessed on the NJDOE's Keeping OUR Kids Safe, Healthy and in School webpage at
