Dear Piscataway Families:

We are now two weeks into the 2020-2021 school year. Our Back-to-School Nights conclude this week. I hope you had a chance to meet your child’s teachers online, and that you continue to keep in touch with these teachers throughout the year. This is very important – especially while we are adjusting to remote learning. When a teacher is better informed about how a student is handling learning remotely, we can do a better job formulating a plan to best assist that student.

District-Issued Devices
Students who did not yet receive their district device should expect it soon. And please remember, students who in the meantime do not have access to a personal device, should contact their building principal as soon as possible. We will provide a loaner device to use until the ordered devices arrive in District, late this month.

Meal Delivery
We have two announcements about our meal delivery.

  1. As of this week, Thursday meal pick-ups will include meals for the weekend.
  2. For next week only, due to Yom Kippur, meal pick-up will be scheduled for Tuesday, September 29, rather than Monday.

“Grab and Go” meals are available to all Piscataway students for pickup on Mondays and Thursdays between 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. Please bring your child’s ID card to the pickup location to collect meal(s). Grab and go breakfast and lunch packages at the following locations:

•          Administration Building, 1515 Stelton Road
•          Arbor School, 1717 Lester Place
•          Children’s Corner by the River, 2300 Cooper Street
•          Eisenhower School, 360 Stelton Road
•          M.L. King School, 5205 Ludlow Street
•          T. Schor School, 243 North Randolphville Road

Counseling
Your school counselors are here for students and families. While we may be operating remotely, our counselors and mental health professionals are here to support our students’ academic and social emotional needs. Please do not hesitate to reach out to them via Email or phone. The Haven, Piscataway's mental health program based at PHS, is also available to assist students and families. The Haven can be reached at 732-981-0700, ext. 2250 or via email at Haven@pway.orgAs always, if you are experiencing a true emergency call 911 or if you need immediate mental health assistance call UBHC at (800) 969-5300.

Finally, I want you to know our entire staff is dedicated to creating the best possible outcome for all students. I appreciate and consider all questions and comments regarding our remote learning plan and will continue to keep you apprised of any and all updates as we move forward through the year.

Very sincerely,


Dr Frank Ranelli
