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! https://docs.google.com/document/d/1fjXpUERpHZAX5Tk6h1PakeviHWo6__QmYMu7hmNEjbU/edit?usp=drive_web

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

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!
