SCHOOL ANNOUNCEMENTS

Report Cards for Grades 1-5 will open on Skyward today at  4 p.m.

Here is the April Hybrid A-B calendar:  April A_B Calendar.pdf

No Materials Drop-offs during school hours:   Please send your child to school with everything they need for the day (Chromebook, math book, snack, etc.)  In the interest of everyone’s health and safety, we are not delivering forgotten items to the classrooms.


REGISTRATION for KINDERGARTEN and New First Graders for September 2021 is still open. We need all eligible kindergartners to be registered now in order to gauge class sizes.   Simply visit the district website and click on Registration to follow the easy directions.  Please read Dr. Tom Gorman’s letter here:   Kindergarten Registration 2021.pdf

HEALTH NOTICES:

Fifth Grade Parents:  Please read this letter regarding necessary 6th Grade Immunizations  6th gr immunization letter 2021.pdf

Family Travel: FYI….the numbers in Ridgewood are now considered HIGH, so..If your family has travelled or is travelling to a place other than New York, Pennsylvania, Connecticut, or Delaware, you must quarantine for 10 days from your return to New Jersey, OR you can get a Covid test on day 3-5 upon your return, and if it is negative, provide written results to Mrs. Manke so you can return to school after day 7.  If you are travelling internationally (and that includes the Caribbean) you will need to quarantine for 14 days and there is no testing out of this quarantine.

Please keep this in mind when you are making plans for next week.  Right now, it doesn’t look like it’s going to be changing.  Please let Mrs. Manke know where you traveled and the date you returned, so we can figure out when your child may return to school.  Thank you.
