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

In Cresskill Schools, it is our goal to remain responsive to the unique needs of all of our students. This week begins the holy month of Ramadan, and Cresskill community is helping to observe this month by holding a crescent lantern event at the library this evening. The invite is attached and all are welcome. Additionally, it is important to be responsive to the needs of our students that observe this month. Ramadan sometimes includes fasting of not only food but also water. We encourage parents and students that are observing the month to reach out and partner with us in ensuring a fruitful observance. Sometimes minor adjustments can have a major positive impact for our students. We look forward to helping.
