A Message from the Superintendent 11-24-21

Community Message: Wednesday, November 24, 2021

Good morning. Today is Wednesday, November 24 and I thank you for logging onto my community message.

With nearly three months of the school year “in the books,” we’ve enjoyed a return to a number of in-person activities, including book fairs, athletic competition and after-school activities. A special tip of the hat to the RHS drama club for their outstanding performance of Noises Off last week and of course congratulations to the Raritan High School football team in qualifying for a State-sectional play-off game this past Friday. As I’ve previously noted, the District is humming on all cylinders and we look forward to continuing that trend.

HOWEVER—Covid isn’t gone. Last week we had TWENTY confirmed cases in our schools, the majority of them stemming from a single social gathering so please, as the holidays approach, prioritize health & safety as you travel and spend time with family and friends. The Governor has suggested that if infections continue to drop and vaccinations continue to rise, he may well rescind the mask mandate sometime in January. So let’s work together to make that a reality.

Till then, please take a moment to appreciate those kids at your table tomorrow when you sit down together for a holiday meal. Keep them safe, keep them happy, keep them moving forward.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING Hazlet! Enjoy the day!
