We are moving the Coffee with the Superintendent to next Thursday, March 7th at 7 PM in the CHS Student Center so it does not conflict with the championship basketball game and Merritt Game Night. The focus of the evening next week will be on helping parents with multilingual communication and supports. All are invited, but especially our multilingual parents will find the evening helpful. The language liaisons will meet at 6 PM to prepare.
Tonight's Coffee with the Superintendent scheduled for 7 PM has been moved to Thursday, February 29th at 7 PM in the high school student center. The night will focus on translation tools and supports for our multilingual families and be supported in multiple languages.
Cresskill School District will be closed on Tuesday, February 13, due to the anticipated snowfall.
We have inclement weather approaching that may impact the school day tomorrow. I highly recommend that the entire community download the Cresskill Schools App onto your phone and set your phone to allow for notifications. While we will update the website, send text messages, emails, and voice messages, those messages usually arrive after the notifications on the APP. If you want to know right away, the app is the best way!

Lunar New Year is this Saturday, February 10th. As part of honoring the day, I asked our town DEIB committee to share some resources with our teachers, and they did such a great job that I want to also extend their compiled resources to the larger community for families to use. We are grateful for the DEIB Committee's mission of ensuring that all residents of Cresskill feel belonging and celebrated!
Black History Month is in full swing in Cresskill, and we are so grateful to our educators and students that have been planning the month of activities and lessons. This gem of a bulletin board says it all!

Exciting news! Our bill in the NJ Senate, S1892, was passed by the State Senate and signed into law by Governor Murphy. School districts going forward that are impacted by natural disasters will no longer have to wait to borrow funds to rebuild. They can instead get approval by the Commissioner of Education to begin rebuilding sooner. We will be sending thank you letters to the politicians that helped pass this important legislation. You can read our thank you letter here: https://shorturl.at/gtXY1

This is a reminder that we have a board of education meeting tomorrow, January 22nd at 7 pm. Additionally, the board will be touring the high school facility at 6 pm. The public is welcome to join us at both events.
Cresskill will have a NORMAL school day today. The anticipated snow seems to be consistent this afternoon, indicating that an early dismissal would not ensure greater safety. However, please take your time this afternoon and watch for students as you approach the schools due to the potential for reduced visibility. Let's have a safe day!
We are currently on a full day schedule for tomorrow, Friday, January 19th. We will be evaluating weather in the morning and send any notification after 6 am. Please be reminded that our voice messaging may be delayed and we recommend downloading and installing the phone app and setting your notifications to be on.
