Updated District Calendar
Lloyd Road's Halloween Parade will take place on Thursday, October 31st, starting at 1:40 p.m. Information is as follows:
Where: Students will exit out of the side doors into the Lloyd Road side parking lot closest to Lloyd Road, turn right, walk on the front driveway toward the playground, wrap around the playground parking lot, and walk back down the main driveway to re-enter the same side doors. It is not a very long parade but still enjoyable for the students. It usually lasts about 15 minutes.
Class snacks: Appropriate snacks/treats for classrooms will be communicated by your child’s teacher since each class’ needs may be different based on allergies or not.
Any parent that may have signed up to help with a classroom party does need to stop by the office to sign in if they will be in the classroom.
Costume reminder for students that choose to participate in the parade and dress up in a costume: We do allow students to wear their costumes to school. If a costume is worn to school it has to be comfortable and one that the child can still learn in and not distract themselves or others. If a costume is brought to school to be changed into, please make it easy for your child to change into it. Costumes should also not be violent in nature, revealing, or include weapons. Students who have masks as part of their costume can wear it during the parade.
Our school counselors are also looking to run classroom lessons as much as they can on various character awareness topics.
Free Symposium on Mental Health/Wellness
On Thursday, October 3, 2019, the Monmouth County Schools Partnership for Wellness (MCSPW) will be hosting its first mental health and wellness symposium at Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, New Jersey. The event is from 6:00 PM-9:00 PM in the Student Life Center on the Lincroft Campus. This event is open to the public but is specifically designed to provide parents/guardians of school-aged children with information and resources available in Monmouth County to support child and adolescent mental health and wellness.
The Monmouth County Schools Partnership for Wellness (MCSPW) is a volunteer consortium of public school districts created to promote mental health and well-being for school community members. Through collaboration with member districts, the Monmouth County Partnership for Wellness strives to enhance awareness regarding mental health and well-being topics, cultivate empathy for individuals who struggle with various types of mental health conditions, and engage school community members in this important work. The goal of this partnership is to share rich, appropriate resources in order to help communities develop timely, sustainable, and systemic initiatives focused on creating stigma-free, inclusive and supportive environments. The MCSPW understands that when individuals receive the care, support, and safety they deserve along with access to sources of resiliency, people are empowered to lead more productive lives as learners and as citizens.
