To start, I want to say that I sincerely hope that you and yours are healthy at home. Let me take this opportunity to thank everyone who has embraced the many challenges we have faced as a township, state and nation over the course of the past few weeks. I’d also like to thank those who have truly embraced Nutley’s spirit of volunteerism throughout this challenging time.
We have ventured into uncharted educational territory, but thanks to everyone involved, we are making it happen! Our teachers, administrative staff and IT personnel have been continuously working together to help facilitate and improve our online learning programs. They have been tasked with creating a positive and nurturing learning environment for our children with little time to prepare for this transition. Additionally, I’d like to thank parents who are taking on the additional role as a homeschool teacher; we recognize this is not easy, however your ability to embrace this new role is what’s making this transition possible.
My thoughts and prayers remain with those who are ill, as well as all the amazing individuals in the medical and research communities who are working tirelessly to treat
the sick and work toward eradicating this virus.
I am extremely thankful for all the Police, Fire, EMS, community workers and volunteers who put themselves on the front line each day so others can remain safely at home with their families. Special thanks to our grocery store, pharmacy, delivery personnel, mail carriers and other essential personnel that continue to go to work every day, these folks are our everyday heroes!
To be successful, we all need to continue to work together. During these trying times I have seen our Nutley community shine, through acts of kindness and volunteerism. I couldn’t be prouder to call Nutley my home! Together, we can work through this and make Nutley a stronger community that will continue to thrive for years to come.
Hamlin 2020 Vision:
One Team, One Theme, NUTLEY!
God Bless you and God Bless Nutley
