As the weather is getting colder here in Allamuchy, this is a good opportunity to remind our school community what steps the district takes to communicate school delays, early dismissals or closings due to inclement weather as well as the precautions taken to ensure student safety at bus stops.
When a decision is made, it is immediately posted on the school district website (http://www.aes.k12.nj.us) and distributed via our Honeywell Instant Alert system. It is also announced on WRNJ (1510 AM). Parents may check the “School Closing Information” option on the automated school telephone line (908-852-1894) by pressing option 6. As winter fast approaches, it is always a good idea for members of our school community to log-in to our Honeywell Instant Alert system to check your contact information. Bus Stop Pick-Up: Students should be standing at the bus stop a few minutes prior to the bus arrival to ensure timely pick-ups at each stop and prevent students from being in dangerous circumstances. Parents should stand with K-1 students until the bus arrives as well as be at the bus stop for student pick-up in the afternoon. Drop off at ATS: The bus lane is closed to through traffic during morning drop off and afternoon pick up hours. Please drop your students by the gym doors. Students in grades 2-5 may walk through the interior of the building to get to the cafeteria.
Our Allamuchy Cross Country team has been down a very long path with an impressive 13 students. They have put in a lot of work training hard every day. The team has shown that you can always improve, especially when you compete with passion, effort, and respect for the sport.
The week of October 6th was the New Jersey Week of Respect. Respect is defined as a feeling or attitude of admiration and deference towards somebody or something. This week was important for us all to remember the importance of respecting diversity and appreciating others.
