Dear Parents and Guardians:

I would like to welcome you and your children to a new school year here in the Flemington-Raritan Regional School District!  Our greatest pride is in the work of our students, staff, administrators and Board.

The 2014-2015 school year will usher in, for the first time, a full-day kindergarten program for all of our kindergarten-age students. Our kindergarten teachers and related art teachers have been working throughout the spring and summer on preparing the classrooms, writing curriculum and planning meaningful, and developmentally appropriate lessons for the all-day program. We are very confident that this change will greatly enhance the educational experience of our youngest students.
 
Since I first arrived in July 2009, I have stated repeatedly that student and staff safety is my number one priority. Over the past two years we have been researching “best school safety practices” from experts from around the country. We have been installing additional safety equipment, reviewing and upgrading safety related protocols and policies and working with Hunterdon County officials so that our schools are some of the safest schools in the country.
 
One of the new procedures is our visitor registration system; Raptor. When you visit our schools and are allowed to come into the office, you will be asked to have your driver’s license scanned. The program will prepare a badge, with your picture, which must be worn the entire time you are in the building. The system will allow us to maintain an electronic roster of who is visiting our school and help us, if needed, at dismissal time. Finally the scan will immediately be reviewed by a national sex offender database in Houston Texas and alert school staff if a match is found.  Protocols have been developed to further support this new program.
 
Finally, the 2014-2015 school year will be a year of transitions. Our students will transition into a new state-wide testing program; Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC). The district will be bringing closure to the 2010-2015 Strategic Plan and transitioning into a new long range plan in 2015. We also have several changes in our administrative team with principals taking over the leadership responsibilities of different buildings. We also welcome our new Math and Science Supervisor Ms. Dana Collins. Finally, as a result of my retirement announcement last spring, our Board will be selecting a new superintendent. I have already begun to take steps that will help ensure that a smooth and seamless transition takes place in the summer of 2015.
 
We are here to provide our students with the most challenging and responsible education in the safest and cleanest classrooms possible. The changes I have outlined here will help us accomplish this goal at the highest standard. I wish you a wonderful and productive school year.

 

Respectfully,

Gregory T. Nolan
