Parents and Guardians,
I hope you are enjoying the final days of summer!
I wanted to reach out to you to make your return to school a little easier. As of today, the school will re-open to in-person learning for all students on Wednesday, September 8, 2021.
To help you navigate the first days of school, I will be mailing home welcome letters at the end of the week. The letters will include your child’s classroom assignments for the coming year (this information can also be found on your Parent Portal), as well as the arrival and dismissal plans.
For the 2021-22 school year, breakfast and lunch will be provided for those families who are interested. I encourage all parents to monitor their PowerSchool Parent Portal to receive up-to-date information regarding their children’s grades and homework assignments during the course of the year.
Pre-K and Kindergarten orientation will be held on Thursday, September 2, 2021, at 12:30 p.m. Additional information will be made available in the next few days.
Finally, we will make every effort to keep everyone safe during this time. Therefore, all students, staff, and visitors MUST wear a mask when in the building and on school grounds. Please remember to complete the daily COVID questionnaire in PowerSchool.
Stay safe and enjoy the remaining days of summer!

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.

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!
