COVID-19 Update

School Closure:

As I’m sure you’re all aware, many schools, children’s programs, and business have been announcing closures in the wake of COVID-19.  We’ve been closely monitoring the situation by tracking announcements made by the World Health Organization, the NJDOE, the NJDOH, Governor Murphy, local schools, and local businesses.  After much deliberation, we’ve concluded that we have no choice but to move to online schooling until further notice.

Our Open House scheduled for March 16th is cancelled.  We are working on putting together a Virtual Open House for next week.  An e-mail will be sent out with updates.
