Dr. Hughes shared the following topics in the BOE meeting last evening: Cresskill in the News, positive events in the schools, translation programs for families, and enrollment trends. Here is the presentation: https://shorturl.at/knqI9
Please be advised that we are constructing the flood barriers to protect the building out of a preponderance of caution for the anticipated rain tomorrow.

Next Monday, November 6th, Dr. Hughes and Dr. Amato will be hosting a special event for TRAUMA INFORMED PARENTING in person at 8:30 am at EHB and virtually at 8:00 pm to discuss ways to support children through times of trauma.
These sessions will focus in particular on helping our children with resilience, provide helpful insight into their needs and how to provide a supportive environment at home and school. We will also discuss the importance of self-care for parents. All are invited, but especially those impacted by the war.
Some great protections are being put into place as we fix our front drainage and install new flood barriers. This will work to greatly enhance the protection of our high school from any threats of water.
