EVG's Weekly Update

Building a Better World, One Student at a Time

Week of November 8, 2021

Dear EVG Community,

I hope everyone had a lovely four-day weekend and enjoyed the extra hour of sleep. This week we will continue our Apex Leadership lessons. In addition, the Apex Fun Run will take place on Friday, November 12th. Each student should have brought home a pledge kit last week. The students are looking forward to this fun event.

Information about Parent-Teacher Conferences will be going home this week. This year we are offering an in-person and virtual option for conferences. Please see the letter below for more information.

Just a reminder the school district is following the CDC's quarantine guidelines as they pertain to travel. If you travel outside of the NY, NJ, and PA and your child is unvaccinated, they will need to quarantine. We ask your cooperation in following these guidelines to keep our students and staff safe.

Below are a few important reminders:

  • If your child is not feeling well, please keep them home until they are feeling better. If your child is going to be absent, please call the attendance line at 201-945-4106 x2217.

  • School begins each day at 8:00 am.

  • Each student should bring a water bottle to school each day. Please label the bottle with the child's name.

Have a great week!

Michele Higgins, EVG Principal
