Each student (200) will receive 1 Flower and 1 Herb at the beginning of camp. They will learn how to prepare the soil for planting and then plant their flower and herb in a plot (6 ft apart; to ensure social distancing) to maintain and grow. Each instructor will have a plot designated for their group (10) to also promote social distancing and cohorts.

Curriculum will cover the Next Gen Science Standards. At the end of camp students will be able to take their plant and herb home.

A few slots are still available. For more information, call community Liaison Anna Faone at 732-228-2955.

“The Board and Superintendent, once again, stepped up to the plate when the Township was not sure whether they would continue the recreation program,” said District Attorney Michael Inzelbuch. “Granted, this program is not legally required, but – our kids need it.”

    How are the kid going to be put on buses and do thay need mask on

  • Thomas Paine says:

    Thank you, Pat, for bringing up such a common-sense and extremely important question for our times.

    Your question invites other questions.

    How will these grades K – 5 children be congregating at their respective stops, with whom will they be waiting, and will they be wearing masks while waiting?

    And will their temperatures be taken just prior to boarding to ensure no child already has a significant fever before arriving at the school? Who will take their temperatures? And what happens if a child is left at the bus stop without their parent’s staying with is often the case with the upper grades..? If that child cannot board the bus because of a significant fever or whatever other possible Covid symptom the child may exhibit, does the bus just leave the child behind (no pun intended)?

    I, as I am sure is Pat’s intention, just want to ensure safety for all, as well as to be reassured with some direct responses,maybe from our superintendent Winters.

    I do see this “open -school” idea as a positive step forward, and hopefully all goes smoothly for everyone’s sake. But, please some more planning information that answer the questions posed above can really assist in alleviating those common sense concerns.

    Thank you. Pat and I, as I am sure all those reading this, would welcome..and need..a speedy response from the person in charge of, and responsible for the summer school outdoor program.
