Information from the state department of health.
Elementary teachers from Great Meadows Regional and Hackettstown School Districts will introduce Bedtime Math to families during parent-teacher conferences this month, reaching over 1,000 students. It is part of a new partnership to expand the reach of Bedtime Math’s innovative family engagement app.
The district has switched to a new database system as of the 2016-17 school year. This new system replaces many older systems including the Honeywell Instant Alert system. It is important that all parents and guardians login to the new system to update their phone numbers and email addresses to prevent their missing important alerts from the school . . including school closures or emergencies. Please click the title above to be taken to a webpage designed to help walk you through updating this information.
Fall is in the air, but the mosquitoes are still here! Protect yourself and your family from mosquito-borne viruses by practicing the 3 D’s of mosquito control: Drain, Dress, and Defend. DRAIN standing water from containers around your yard to eliminate mosquito breeding. DRESS to cover your skin by wearing long sleeves and pants when possible. DEFEND yourself by using EPA-approved insect repellent. If you are TRAVELING in the near future, learn where Zika is active before you go. If you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant, contact your physician. Protect you and your partner from Zika. For more information, visit the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention website at www.cdc.gov/zika, or the New Jersey Department of Health website at www.nj.gov/health/cd/zika, or call the New Jersey 24/7 Zika Call Center at 1-800-962-1253.
