    I hope that everyone is healthy and had a good week. At the Board of Education Caucus meeting on Tuesday, April 13th, a motion was approved to lengthen the school day beginning May 3. What this will look like is as follows:

    Pre-K and Daisy program hours will remain the same.
    Kindergarten - 6th Grade = 9:00 a.m. - 2:53 p.m.
    The Hybrid A/Hybrid B schedule will remain the same. Wednesday will continue to be a flex day.
    Lunch will be served in school.
    Breakfast will continue to be "Grab and Go", sent home at the end of the day.
    The a.m. bus schedule remains the same.
    The p.m. bus will leave Cleveland School at approximately 2:45 p.m.

    Additional information will be provided from your child’s teacher.

    Dear Parent,

    Pandemic EBT (P-EBT) helps families buy groceries when students are learning remotely because of COVID.

    Students approved to receive free or reduced-price school meals may qualify for P-EBT. We encourage parents to complete a school meals application at www.rahway.net, if you have not already done so. If your child is already approved, please, check your Powerschool parent portal to make sure your child’s address and birthdate are correct.

    You may be eligible for this assistance even if your school is providing meals during remote learning. Accepting this aid will not hurt a family’s immigration status. The funds will be issued in the coming months and will be provided on a card you can use to buy food at grocery stores and other retail stores. Visit njsnap.gov for the most current information.

    Estimados padres / tutores:

     

    El distrito ha realizado algunos cambios en el plan de reapertura de la escuela programado para el 15 de marzo de 2021.

     

    Un cambio es que su hijo ahora aprenderá en un entorno de "modo mixto". Esto significa:

     

    1. Todos los estudiantes permanecerán con su maestro actual.

     

    2. Todos los estudiantes recibirán cinco días de contacto con el maestro, ya sea que estén programados como híbridos o virtuales. El miércoles será ahora el "día flexible" virtual; todos los estudiantes deben iniciar sesión desde casa los miércoles.

     

    3. Si su hijo está programado para el aprendizaje híbrido A o B, ahora iniciará sesión en sus aulas en sus "días virtuales" (los días virtuales del híbrido A son los miércoles, jueves y viernes. Los días virtuales del híbrido B son los lunes, martes y miércoles).

     

    El segundo cambio es el horario de instrucción. El horario de instrucción ahora será de 9:00 a.m. a 1:30 p.m. para estudiantes de kínder a sexto grado. Por lo tanto, el almuerzo y el desayuno no se servirán en la escuela. Se distribuirán bolsas de desayuno y almuerzo “para llevar” todos los días al final del día para comer en casa. Las bolsas de desayuno entregadas están destinadas al desayuno del día siguiente. Por ejemplo; las bolsas de desayuno que se entreguen el lunes por la tarde deben tomarse como desayuno el martes en casa.

     

    Solo el lunes 15 de marzo, se servirá el desayuno (para los estudiantes del híbrido A) en la escuela de 8:30 a.m. a 8:55 a.m.

     

    Las horas de pre kínder seguirán siendo de 8:26 am a 2:53 pm. No se harán otros cambios al programa de preescolar. Todos los estudiantes de Pre-K seguirán recibiendo desayuno y almuerzo del edificio.

     

    Recoger y llevar en la ventana de la cafetería todavía está disponible cinco días a la semana para todos los estudiantes.

     

    Los profesores se comunicarán contigo con información más específica sobre la programación de reuniones de Google y cualquier otro ajuste de horario para sus clases individuales.

    Dear Parents, 

    We sincerely hope this email finds you, your families, and our school community in good health.  

     

    This has been a challenging year for everyone, but our Rahway students are strong and they have endured great challenges.  This year, more than ever, it is important to highlight our youth. 


    As with many activities and programs during this pandemic, it is necessary to adapt and adjust to the current situation. Therefore, the Rahway's Own Committee has also made some changes to the Rising Star program for this year. 


    This year, School Administration has been asked only to share information with their teachers, staff, and parent and guardian populations. Rahway’s Own Rising Stars will accept nominations from the community through the Rahway's Own website http://rahwaysown.com/. Parents, teachers, guardians, and community members may all nominate students who have continued to excel or showcase the resilience of being Rahway Strong.

     

    This year it is not necessary for each school to have a student represented from their student body. Additionally, you do not have to attend Rahway Public Schools to be eligible for recognition.

     

    We know there are still Rahway kids out there who are working hard and it is important to the community that they are recognized. 

     

    Please see the criteria, and contact information below:


    Rahway's Rising Star Program

     

    The Nomination period ends April 30, 2021

     

    Rahway's Own website http://rahwaysown.com/.
     

     We are asking for everyone to consider nominating students who fit at least one of the following criteria: 

     

    ** impacted their school community **
    ** impacted Rahway or has been impacted by Rahway **
    ** has achieved a prestigious title or award **
    ** has excelled in an area, in school or beyond school **
    ** has created an extraordinary program or business **

    Dear Parents and Guardians,
     
    The ability to effectively communicate to our Grover Cleveland families is of utmost importance, especially during these unsettling times. The NJDOE has not suspended the NJ Drill Law N.J.S 18A:41-1 during this Covid 19 pandemic. Our school is still conducting emergency drills.
     
    Grover Cleveland School will soon be conducting a Notification Drill in an effort to identify the capability of the school to effectively communicate emergency messaging as well as up-to-date general information regarding our school activities.  To that end, we are asking all GCS families to please verify that your cell and home numbers, as well as your email addresses, are correct in your Power School Parent Portal. If they have changed, please update them immediately in your Parent Portal. This is very important for the ongoing safety of our students and their families! If you are aware of any family that is not receiving communication from our school, please have them notify the main office at  732-396-1040 or 732-396-1213.
     
    If you have difficulties updating your contact information, please contact the main office at 732-396-1040 or 732-396-1213 for assistance.
     
    Thank you for your continued cooperation and support!

    Dear Parents and Families:

    Did you know? Reading just 20 minutes a day exposes your child to about 1.8 million words per year. Reading helps students develop a stronger vocabulary, and in addition, students who read for pleasure average higher grades in English, mathematics, science, and history!

    Encourage your child to read books!
