Dear Newell Elementary School Families,
I hope this letter finds you in better circumstances this week compared to the state of the community last week with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. This morning I had an opportunity to visit each class to speak to the children first-hand about the conditions in their neighborhoods and homes. I heard from several children that they are still without power. Some families are fortunate to be running heat, water, and partial lighting off of a generator while others are not as fortunate. Please know that NES and the District of Upper Freehold are here to help you and your family in any way we can. Currently Stone Bridge Middle School is offering families the use of their warm showers and their heated library space between the hours of 4:00 PM and 9:00 PM for those families in need. If there is anything else we can do to support you and your family during this difficult time, please let your child’s classroom teacher know and we are more than happy to help. In addition, our school counselor, Mr. Michael Rowley is available to meet with any child who may be having a difficult time coping with the current conditions.
We are fortunate to live in a community where people are always willing to lend a helping hand to those in need. So if you are in need, please reach out and let us know.
Take care and well.
