Welcome to the 2020-2021 School Year
September 2020 - the Full Remote Program
We begin the 2020-2021 School Year in a Full Remote Program, meaning that all of our staff will teach, and all of our students will learn, virtually through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous activities. Synchronous activities, where the teacher and students are all interacting remotely and focusing on the same activitiy, will occur Mondays-Thursdays during hours similar to that of a minimum session day. On Fridays, all activities will be asynchronous, meaning that students will log on to their chromebook or computer for attendance purposes and to access activities for that day, which they will complete on their own.
Each of our Principals has created a Town Hall Presentation explaining how the Full Remote Program will work at their school.
Our Instructional Technology Department has created a website to provide resources for families and staff members. Additionally, the Instructional Technology Department has created a form for parents to report specific issues or as a question
We will continue to provide meals in bulk to families in need once a week.
The Restart and Recovery Plan
On August 19, 2020 Superintendent Ravally on behalf of the district Restart/Reopen Committee submitted a request to the Somerset Executive County Superintendent of Schools, requesting approval to delay our opening of in-person instruction this fall. Dr. Ravally explained the reasons for this request in a letter to the school community.
The district's Restart and Recovery Plan to Reopen Schools was updated to include this request and has been revised to reflect additional guidance from the NJ Department of Education.
