School closed for the remainder of 2019-2020

Remote learning for students will continue for the rest of the school year with our final day of remote learning scheduled for June 23, an early dismissal day. Please be reminded that remote learning will be held on May 22 to make up for the District’s closure on December 2. May 22 is a Day 2 and a B Day for school schedules. Also, remote instruction will not be held on May 25 in observance of Memorial Day. There is no change to the 180-day state statute requirement for student attendance.

Meals Available During Home Instruction - View Pick Up Schedule

Our district is offering free meals to ALL Flemington-Raritan students and their siblings, who are under the age of 18. Every Monday for the remainder of our school closure for those that are eligible for free and reduced-price meals and those families experiencing hardship, meals will be available.

If your family is experiencing hardship due to COVID-19, you are also eligible for meals. All families who participate in meal pick up need only share their child’s name and the school the child attends or the area school closest to their home.

Meals can be picked up at Reading-Fleming Intermediate School at 50 Court Street every Monday from 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Meal pick up is also available at the school nearest to you every Monday during home instruction, during the time slots below:

9:00 - 9:30 a.m. at Copper Hill School
9:45 - 10:15 a.m. at Barley Sheaf School
10:30 - 11 a.m. at Francis A. Desmares School
11:15 - 11:45 a.m. at Robert Hunter School.

At Copper Hill Elementary, Barley Sheaf Elementary, Francis A. Desmares Elementary School, and Robert Hunter Elementary School, meals are distributed from a district vehicle with the Flemington-Raritan School District’s logo on the district vehicle. Look for the district vehicle in the parking lot.

During meal pick up, all participants, with the exception of those under the age of two, and those with a medical reason not to wear a facial covering must adhere to the governor’s executive order to wear a mask covering their nose and mouth and maintain social distancing of six-feet from others that do not reside in their own home.
