THE PATH FORWARD:
A PLAN TO REOPEN OUR SCHOOLS
OBTPS Weekly Update - November 25, 2020
As we return to our fully remote learning platform, we recognize that our students, staff, and families will need a little extra motivation to get through these next few months. With Thanksgiving approaching we hope that each of your families can find things to be grateful for despite the challenges we face. Old Bridge Township has rallied before and succeeded in overcoming challenges, and our students continue to learn from their adult role models as well as their peers. We strive to maintain engagement, motivation and positivity and we are confident we can do so working together.
One step in maintaining student engagement is requiring students to turn their cameras on. In order for our staff and students to connect, we feel strongly that students need to be more than icon on a screen. We want to make eye contact, see cheery faces, and be connected. Please review carefully the Cameras on for Instruction memo related to student cameras.
