RED BANK, NJ: We hope everyone is doing well and holding up under the circumstances. Thank you for another successful week of remote learning and for the enthusiastic response to our Virtual Learning Spirit Week!

Governor Murphy's Executive Order requires all New Jersey schools to be closed indefinitely and we anticipate his next update on Friday, April 17. After several weeks of intense efforts by our students, families and staff to support continuity of instruction, the #RBBisBIA attitude is shining brightly! We are set to enjoy a much-deserved Spring Break beginning on Friday, April 10 and ending on Sunday, April 19.

You can expect our next update on Wednesday, April 22 and as always, it will be communicated via our website, marquee, phone blast, social media, etc. This update will include details about assessing student work for the third trimester and any plans we have developed moving forward. As we progress through this unprecedented journey, we expect to improve each week in all areas including communication, food services and instruction. We are keenly aware that this is not a time for added stress or confusion, so we are committed to making every decision in the spirit of simplicity, compassion and assistance.
