Physicals:

 

All students interested in playing sports will need their physical paperwork completed prior to the start of the season  Once Physicals are filled in by your doctor they need to be submitted to the school doctor.  This can be a lengthy process as they have to be physically delivered and picked up by school personnel.  Physicals turned in AFTER July 31st will NOT GUARANTEE that your child will be cleared for Fall Sports Tryouts.  

 

Important Chromebook Information:

 

Students will be taking their Chromebooks, Chargers, and Student IDs home for the summer.  Please keep these items in a safe place so they are ready to return with our students on September 5th.  By the middle of August, please check to make sure your Chromebook is working.  If not, contact the district technology department to schedule an appointment for the Chromebook to be repaired.

EBT Benefits: 

 

New Jersey Department of Agriculture Distributes Summer EBT Benefits to More than 500,000 Children - Perishable News for information on how families can apply for Summer EBT benefits.  New Jersey is one of the 37 states participating in this new, permanent, nationwide USDA program to provide food dollars to low-income families with school-aged children over the summer months. New Jersey is providing families with $120 per eligible child for the summer to buy nutritious food at grocery stores, farmers markets, or other authorized retailers – similar to how SNAP benefits are used. New Jersey’s total Summer EBT distribution is expected to amount to more than $66 million in federal food security benefits.
