As many of you have already heard, the governor has closed schools for the remainder of the 19-20 school year. Our students will continue to complete their distance learning through the end of the year. We have seen a lot of success, with minimal issues, conducting school in this fashion. It is very important that our teachers and parents continue to work together to solve issues to provide the best possible education for our students.
May 4th through May 8th is Staff Appreciation Week. We’d like to send out a very heartfelt thank you to our Upper Pittsgrove educators. They have worked extremely hard and shown their resilience through these very difficult circumstances. Our educators continue to provide a caring and nurturing environment for our students. If you and your family have a few moments, please reach out to your teachers and tell them how much they are appreciated; I know this would mean a great deal to them!
As more information is released, we will keep you updated. The administration would like to thank everyone for working together to provide the best education and atmosphere possible.

We wanted to pass along a link to local food pantry options in our area. Use this link to locate a pantry near you if you are in need of food, or if you would like to donate items as well. We are all in this together, let's do what we can to help our neighbors during this time of crisis. Please share this link with anyone who may want to see what is available. There is an option to search the website by town as well, so if you don't see a location close to you, search nearby towns.
From the website:
"We not only provide listings of pantries, but we also provide information on: food closets, food banks, soup kitchens, congregate meal locations, food boxes, vouchers, etc. Our comprehensive list of food assistance programs provides full descriptions, pictures, hours, volunteer information, etc. Food locations provided are faith based, government and non profit.
