A Message from Ms. Cimino

Mr. McShaffrey and I would like to wish all of our families a happy and healthy 2021!


Please remember all students will be learning remotely from January 4-January 13. We will resume in person instruction following our four hour hybrid schedule on Thursday January 14 with Group 2 students attending in person. Meal pick up will continue during this time following the information posted on our website.


Please contact our school nurse Mrs. Thompsen for any Covid related questions or concerns, even while we are remote learning. We will continue to keep track of students who need to quarantine due to illness, exposure, or travel. Mrs. Thompsen can be reached by leaving a message at 732-269-5700 ext. 5005 or via email at cthompsen@btboe.org.


When in person instruction resumes, please make sure that your child is sent to school with the appropriate cold weather gear such as a jacket, hat, gloves, etc. Students will go outside for recess/gym if temperatures permit. If you are in need of any of these items, please contact Mrs. Melanson or Mrs. Thompsen.

Virtual Book Fair

Please support our school by ordering books through our Virtual Book Fair. The Virtual Winter Book Fair will run from January 17-January 30. The link will be posted here once it is live. As always, we appreciate your support. Scholastic Dollars earned from each Book Fair are used to purchase resources for the entire school.
