Superintendent's Corner

April 8, 2020 

Hello Piscataway Families, 

An important reminder — we will hold our Spring Break dates as scheduled, and close our remote schools for Good Friday, April 10, and Spring Break, from Monday, April 13 – Friday, April 17. I hope we have good weather sunny days for much needed outdoor time and a break from any stress. And it’s a great time to read for pure pleasure. Remember, you can check out e-books and audio books from the Piscataway Library without leaving your home, and Audible offers free audio books for children during this time. 

While we will take a break from instruction next week, counseling and technology services will be available to our students. If you need technology services, access the ITHelpDesk link found under the Remote/Virtual Instructional Plan tab on the district home page. Counseling services are available for every student, so please reach out to your building principal if you need assistance or emotional support. 

I deeply appreciate the encouragement and cooperation our families give our teachers and staff as we navigate through this uncertain time. We all have to adapt to a new way of learning and living, and it isn’t easy for anyone. Please remember, if your child is having any difficulties in this new learning environment, reach out to your teachers or school principal to discuss how we can help.

Very Sincerely,
