The Bradley Times
Asbury Park School District April 2020 V.1
Hello Bradley Community!
I hope this message finds you well and that your family is safe. It has been a few weeks since we left traditional school but I am pleased to say that we, administrators, teachers and support staff, have been in constant communication with our students and families. Through phone calls, texts, emails and virtual meetings, our students have been engaged in meaningful academic discourse.
As we continue to push through this strange and tough time, you can expect that our approaches will continuously evolve to meet the need of every one of our students. With that, if you have any questions, comments or concerns, reach out to your child’s teacher for specific information.
Please remember to practice social distancing when running necessary errands. Let’s flatten the curve.

REVISED 2019-20 SCHOOL CALENDAR
“We must accept finite disappointment, but we must never lose infinite hope.” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Please know that the Asbury Park School District is firmly committed to ensuring that we are giving all of the possible educational supports within our reach to your children. To that end, during these unprecedented times and in an effort to keep with Governor Phil Murphy’s expectations around ensuring that food insecure students are fed during Spring Break, the district will be adjusting its 2019-2020 school calendar. We will continue to observe Good Friday on April 10, 2020, as a holiday. However, the following week, April 13 through April 17, 2020, we will use the flexibility that remote learning provides and continue with home instruction for our students. This gives our families added instructional support during this state-mandated shelter in place. With this change, the school year will tentatively end on June 12, 2020. Please check our website, www.asburypark.k12.nj.us, and our social media sites for real-time updates during this pandemic. Remember, we are in this TOGETHER. Stay safe and be well!
