Florence Twp. School District -- 2020-2021 -- #23

As always, the Florence Twp. School District is committed to fostering a safe, secure and supportive learning environment for our district schools. We know it's been a long year and with all the winter storms it's making things even more uncomfortable! Please remember though...we are here! Please reach out if you or your child need us!


We continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and appreciate your continued support of our schools during these unprecedented circumstances. We ask that you continue to practice appropriate health and safety precautions, such as:

  • Stay at least 6 feet away from others.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a mask.
  • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water. If soap and water are not available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
  • Avoid crowded indoor spaces and ensure indoor spaces are properly ventilated.
  • Stay home and isolate from others if you are sick.
  • Routinely clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces.


We are not giving up and we will get through this together! Please continue to be safe and stay healthy and to check our district webpage and social media accounts for more information. Thank you for all YOU do to keep our students, staff and schools safe!

Keep Sending In Those Photos

The yearbook committees need your help!!! Please take school-related pictures of your students and send them in! Anything from this year is acceptable. Think holidays, projects, virtual learning, etc. We can't guarantee that they'll all get in but it helps to have more to choose from as they have obviously had their limitations taking pictures this year. Please send in pictures no later than February 19th to the following emails and make sure to put "yearbook photo" in the subject line. If a description of the photo is needed please include as well.

ROEBLING -- Roeblingpto@gmail.com

RIVERFRONT -- RFyearbook@florence.k12.nj.us
