Cedar Mountain Welcomes Pre-K!!

Pre-K Program Update ~ August 1, 2020

Dear Cedar Mountain Family-

We are excited to announce that Cedar Mountain Primary School welcomes the Vernon Township School District's Pre-K Program for the 2020-2021 school year! At this writing, the Pre-K teachers are working hard to set up bigger classrooms that enhance social distancing practices and are collaborating to develop the first-ever Pre-K platform for remote learning opportunities.

Please continue to monitor the VTSD website and the Walnut Ridge Principal's blog for the most up to date information as the Pre-K program evolves in response to New Jersey's COVID guidelines. You can access the Vernon Township School's Reopening Plan using the link below and read some important highlights here-

  • The Pre-K AM session is following the district schedule for the Blue Group for phases one through three.
  • The Pre-K PM session is following the district schedule for the Gold Group for phases one through three.
  • Pre-K tuition will be adjusted to 2/5ths of the full amount for the two in-person instructional days and, all students will have access to the virtual platform for the rest of the week. Thus, the only "charge" is for in-person instruction. All other activities are optional.
  • Pre-K arrival/dismissal times for phases one through three are approximately 9:35 am until 12:10 pm (this is consistent with last year's abbreviated schedule). The schedule may evolve so continue to check here for the most up-to-date information.
  • The students in the PSD program will attend every day, thus following the Blue and Gold schedules.
  • Lunches will be "grab and go" for now. More information regarding procedures and protocols for eating in designated areas will follow in the coming weeks.
  • Please continue to practice wearing masks and hand washing for the remainder of the summer as we will practice these skills when school starts.
