Jackson Township Emergency Alert System

The school district is pleased to help the Jackson Township Police Department get the word out about the township's emergency alert system. This system allows residents to receive phone and e-mail alerts about emergencies and other important community news (e.g. severe weather, road closures, evacuations).

To sign up, click on the image below and follow the instructions on the township's site.
NOTE: This is the system used by township police and personnel - it is different from the automated system used by the school district.

On April 29, 2014 the Board of Education voted to approve a final budget for the 2014-2015 School Year.
This budget supports our programs and staff, allows for updates to our literacy and social studies curriculum and funds important improvements to our facilities.

Do You Have Questions or Concerns That You Would Like to Discuss with the Board of Education?

Dr. Cheryl Simone
Interim Superintendent of Schools

I hope you are all enjoying your summer and finding ways to rest and relax so that you can begin the new school year fresh and ready to learn.

Here at the district  level we are busy preparing for the coming 2014-2015 school year. We are working on our facilities, readying our curriculum and making sure we are well staffed and ready when our students return. Also returning this September is Dr. Stephen Genco, as the new district superintendent of schools.

I hope you are keeping up with your summer assignments and enjoying some summer reading. Both activities will help you begin the new year with fresh minds prepared for the challenges ahead.

Enjoy the rest of your summer - See you in September!
