Old Bridge Families: In January of 2022, the New Jersey State Legislature passed a law restricting law enforcement personnel from within 100 feet of a polling place. Because public schools are polling locations in Old Bridge and we rely upon uniformed law enforcement at every school to secure our facilities, this legislation severely interferes with our community-based plan to safeguard our schools keeping our students and staff safe. Please keep in mind that polling places require no identification or screening of those entering a facility to cast a ballot. These practices are counter-intuitive to those committed to keeping schools safe. Subsequently, the district administration has requested to have elections removed from schools, without success. Therefore, future school calendars will schedule election and primary days accordingly without classes in session. June 7, 2022 is a primary day in which 10 Old Bridge Schools are utilized polling places. Because this new legislation impedes our ability to secure schools in a manner you have become accustomed to and trust, OBTPS will utilize our second scheduled emergency closure day on June 7, 2022 with no classes in session. The last day of school will not be affected by this modification and will remain Tuesday, June 21, 2022 in accordance with the district approved calendar. Please use this information to make any childcare arrangements accordingly and I apologize for any inconvenience. As always, safe learning environments remain our primary goal. Be well, be kind, and believe in Old Bridge David Cittadino Superintendent of Schools
