    Dear WH Community,

     

    The Warren Hills Regional School District, in consultation with all Warren County Schools, and the department of health, will be closing schools in an ”abundance of caution” beginning Monday, March 16, 2020 through and including Friday, March 27, 2020. The district will enact our Emergency Preparedness Plan (EPP) and our Remote Teaching and Learning plan, effective immediately. 

     

    Our faculty have worked to prepare lessons for two (2) weeks in case of a school closing. Equitable access to materials and resources will be provided to all students and instruction will be differentiated to meet the needs of all learners including:

    • ESL/ELL
    • Special Education/504
    • At-Risk
    • Gifted & Talented

    Students will be able to submit assignments for grading through our online Google Classroom platform or in person upon returning to school.

     

    The paragraphs below contain key information regarding Student/School Services as we move forward with our plans:

    Technology Questions:

    Should your child(ren) have technical issues with their Chromebooks, please contact the school district via email at technology@warrenhills.org or (908) 689-3050 ext 3008. 

    Please ensure that the Chromebooks are charged on a daily basis.

    Our Special Services Department will continue to monitor IEP’s and reschedule upcoming  meetings as necessary. Our teachers have prepared lessons that assure equitable access to materials and resources and instruction is differentiated in order to meet the needs of all of our students. Related Services will be accounted for, tracked  and scheduled upon our return. Please email your assigned case manager with any questions or concerns.
