Principal's Message

Wishing everyone a happy new year! What better way to start 2021 than with a focus on kindness. The Star Student of the Month character trait for January is kindness. Students and staff will be working on ways to demonstrate being friendly, generous, and considerate to one another. We encourage you to join us in the Great Kindness Challenge and check out this list of ideas to do as a family.

Preschool Expansion

The Lumberton Township School District is pleased to announce that we have been awarded a Preschool Expansion Grant from the New Jersey Department of Education. This award will allow the district to provide FREE, high quality preschool to a number of our three- and four- year-old students starting on February 1, 2021. The district will be partnering with the Center for Family Services to provide free, high quality preschool to 42 Head Start eligible Lumberton children.

Families must meet the criteria as outlined by Head Start, though some exceptions may be made for families moderately over these amounts. These income guidelines can be waived for families with special circumstances who might benefit from placement in Head Start.

What if I am not comfortable sending my child to school at this time?

There are several service delivery options available, including a fully remote option.
