Old Bridge Township Public Schools will be receiving federal funds through the American Rescue Plan-Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief fund (ARP-ESSER). Districts receiving ESSER III funding are required to solicit public comment and input on a Safe Return to In-Person Instruction and Continuity of Services Plan. The plan will be continuously updated based on input and feedback from staff, parents/guardians, and community members. Please complete the following survey by October 12, 2021. Thank you for participating. https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=7bKCJrldMUOOD8M0xrkhaCRLjft40C1Np5M9iECYEoFURjAwT0tVT0o1NUlFNE5JQ1hZQ1k2WFpSWC4u

Good evening Shepard Families, Our Virtual Open House begins at 7:00pm this evening. ESL begins at 7:00 while all other sessions begin at 7:30 and 8:15. A link to my pre-recorded message will be posted for you to access via this live feed and will be emailed as well.
Dear Parents/Guardians: Shepard School will host its annual Open House on Wednesday, September 29, 2021. This year’s Open House will be conducted virtually utilizing Microsoft Teams and will provide an opportunity for you to meet your child’s teacher(s) and to learn about the grade level curriculum. Teachers will be emailing you and your child meeting links to the virtual presentations. The best way to view Open House is to use your child's district issued device. If you are using your own personal device, please note that you must join the virtual meeting through your browser (you can cut and paste the link directly into the address bar). Please see the attached infographic for assistance in joining the meeting. Two meeting periods have been scheduled to accommodate parents with more than one child attending Shepard School. Teachers will repeat the same information during both sessions. 7:30 pm –8:00 pm Session 1 8:15 pm – 8:45 pm Session 2 Please remember the purpose of this program is for you to become familiar with your child’s instructional program. Teachers will share classroom schedules, instructional materials, and classroom procedures. Time does not permit, nor are teachers prepared, for individual conferences. If you would like to discuss your child’s progress, I encourage you to contact your child’s teacher directly via email to make arrangements for a meeting at a later date. We value the opportunity to speak with you and forge a strong working relationship to benefit our students. Sincerely, Joseph Marinzoli
