Headlines & Virtual Backpack

Week ending September 10, 2021

Welcome, FRSD Students!

This week, our district welcomed the return of all students for their first day of school with full days of in-person instruction. We were thrilled to see buses rolling in and children entering our doors eager to meet their teachers, see friends and celebrate the start of another year of learning and growing together. We wish all of our Barley Sheaf Bears, Copper Hill Cougars, Francis A. Desmares Dolphins, Robert Hunter Racoons, Reading-Fleming Huskies and J.P. Case Tigers a successful school year! We hope you enjoy taking a look back at a few First Day of School photos posted below!

School Closed: Sept. 16

Please be reminded that our district will be closed on Thursday, September 16, in observance of Yom Kippur. School will be open on Friday, September 17. It will be an A Day/Day 1.

FEMA Assistance Available

For New Jersey residents living in Bergen, Gloucester, Hunterdon, Middlesex, Passaic, and Somerset Counties, individuals can apply for assistance through FEMA the following ways:

  • The fastest and easiest way to apply is by visiting disasterassistance.gov/ or by downloading the FEMA App on the Apple App Store or the Google Play Store.
  • If it is not possible to apply online, call 800-621-3362 (TTY: 800-462-7585). The toll-free telephone lines operate from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. CDT, seven days a week. Those who use a relay service such as a videophone, InnoCaption or CapTel should update FEMA with their specific number assigned to that service.

New Jersey residents who live outside the affected counties are encouraged to continue reporting damage (residential structures only, no vehicles) from Ida as damage assessments are ongoing. Information collected in this portal will help local, state, and federal authorities better understand the location and severity of damage impacts. The NJOEM Public Damage Reporting portal is located at https://damagenj-njoem.hub.arcgis.com.

9/11: We Remember

Tomorrow marks the 20th anniversary of the September 11th tragedy. Together, we remember those who lost their lives in the attacks and recognize the service and dedication of those who assisted heroically that day. We are so grateful to the men and women who serve in our Armed Forces as they continue to protect our country.
