Section 504 Plans

All the 504 plans are in Genesis. In order to access a child's 504 plan, there is a blue dot located in the same place where the folder shows up for the IEP. When you click on the blue dot, you will have access to that child's Section 504 Plan. Please use this feature to read any 504 plans for your students.

December 23 Activities


  • On December 23rd, we will have an assembly at 8:30am. Kindergarten and preschool will leave if the assembly is not over by 9:00 for their parties.
  • All the students have been learning the songs that the first and second grade students will sing at the winter concert. We will sing the songs with the motions they have been learning.
  • Please be prepared with your skit for the assembly. As discussed at the staff meeting, we will be doing The Twelve Days of Lopatcong Elementary School. Please see the staff meeting agenda for your "day". Then, have fun coming up with a quick skit for your day. There will be signs for where each group should stand. Please be prepared for wither one member, several members, or your whole group to speak when it is your turn. On the last day we will all wish the students a Happy Holiday! Please remember to include your aides in your skit.

Winter/Holiday Pajama Day

On December 23rd, staff and students may wear pajamas. Students may also wear their Santa hats, reindeer ears, etc.

AM Preschool and Kindergarten Parties will be 9:00am-10:00am.

When we ordered laminating film over the summer, we ordered what we estimated we would need for the whole year. There is very little laminating film left for the rest of the school year. Please consider this and laminate only what is absolutely necessary. When the laminating film runs out, we will not be ordering more.
