The Generals' Update

Your guide to DDE events & announcements: 1/31/2021

Tomorrow begins the third marking period as well as the second semester!

Please take some time today to review your General's schedule with him/her. Several related arts courses are semester-long courses (Health, Personal Financial Literacy, and some Art and Music classes), and those semester courses ended on Friday. These courses are labeled S1 or S2 in Genesis. Please make sure your General knows which related arts he/she should attend on Monday as well as his/her first marking period science or social studies class.

Attendance UPDATE!

It is important you call the attendance line at 732-431-3910, option 1, for the following reasons:
  1. To report your child absent if he/ she is neither well enough to come to school nor attend school virtually.
  2. If your child is not feeling well, and he/she is scheduled to attend school in person, please keep your child home. He/she may still access school virtually and be marked present for the school day. However, you must call the attendance line to let us know.
In either case, please leave a message with your child's name, grade, specific reason for absence, duration of absence (if known), and your relationship to the student. You may also email Kristy Patmore at kpatmore@freeholdtwp.k12.nj.us.
