Cresskill families are invited to Merritt Playground on August 1 at 4 PM (changed) to get to know our newest principal, Ms. Peguero. Popsicles will be served! I will also be hosting a Superintendent Coffee virtually at 7 PM that night for parents to meet and greet Ms. Peguero once the kids are winding down. This will be a moderated opportunity to learn more about our newest principal.

Dear Cresskill Community, It is with great pleasure that I announce our appointment of the new MMS principal, Ms. Jacqueline Peguero. I am very excited that she will be joining us on August 1, 2023. She was our top candidate from 63 applicants after completing an exhaustive interview process consisting of three rounds of interviews, multiple performance tasks, and being interviewed by committees consisting of teachers, building leadership, and district administrators. She was unanimously approved this evening by the board of education after attending the meeting and conducting a brief introduction about her values, beliefs, and reasons for coming to Cresskill. We are in the process of setting up "meet and greets" for the Merritt families beginning on August 1st that we will be sending out information on in the upcoming weeks. With Care & Service to Cresskill, Dr. Peter Hughes Superintendent of Schools

With current air condition being bad outside, I have received some questions about the safety of classroom air when air conditioners are off. Here I explain to some of my fourth graders how univents work to ensure students stay safe. https://youtu.be/-vrk65F8vr4

We are anticipating increased air pollution (particulates) over the next couple of days due to the wild fires in Canada. For those that are sensitive, we encourage mask use when outside - which can greatly reduce inhalation of particulates.
