Jeans Day to Fight Polio

Please support their efforts with a $2.00 donation to wear jeans this Wednesday, November 10th.

Secaucus Rotary's involvement in polio eradication began in 1979 with a five-year commitment to provide and help deliver polio vaccine to six million children of the Philippines. Following similar commitments in other countries, in the early '80s Rotary started planning for the most ambitious program in its history — to immunize all of the world's children against polio, and in 1985 PolioPlus was born. Since then, Rotary’s dedication to the global eradication of polio has remained constant. 2021 marked the 36th anniversary of PolioPlus and more than three decades of progress and challenges the program has faced. But through the efforts of Rotary, over 99 percent of the world’s population lives in regions certified polio-free.

Extra Masks, Please

Please be sure that your student has extra masks in their backpack each day. This way if something happens to their mask they have a backup so their learning is not disrupted when needing to get a replacement.
