• Joint Statement From District Schools Regarding Response Plan to COVID19

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 3/11/2020

    This afternoon there was a joint meeting including the Monmouth County Regional Health Commission (MCRHC), personnel from Riverview Medical Center, Little Silver, Shrewsbury, Red Bank Borough, and Red Bank Charter as well as town officials, OEM, police, and a legislative representative.  The purpose of the meeting was to discuss the newly discovered “presumptive positive” case of COVID-19 at RBR and the proactive plans for our communities for moving forward.


    While RBR has shifted to a virtual school plan to continue its instructional program, the PreK - 8 schools will remain open until further notice.  The Monmouth County Regional Health Commision will lead a proactive effort to identify “close contacts” of the “presumed positive” RBR student. We are working in conjunction with the local school districts, the MCRHC, and local hospitals who are working directly with local physicians. We expect to have mitigation discussions on a daily basis. 


    Limiting the impact of COVID-19 will require a shared response from everyone.  We will continue to provide updates and information. Families should continue to consult these resources for information and advice.


    As this issue is both uncharted and developing, we will continue to provide information as it becomes available.

  • Updated Drop Off Procedures

    Posted by Louis Moore on 1/17/2020

    Dear Students and Families,


    The morning drop off continues to be a challenge, both for logistics and safety.  Please be advised of these new procedures that will be in place starting on Tuesday, January 21 to improve conditions.


    • Please make use of the Media Center drop off.  Students will have to walk to the main area entrance but this will reduce congestion on both Ridge Road and on campus.
    • Vehicles will not be able to exit via the main entrance.  All cars will be directed to the eastern entrance closest to Hance Avenue.  Police will be here to guide you.
    • Remember that Red Bank Regional staff and students will be crossing in the drop-off zones. New Jersey Traffic Laws mandate that you must stop for all pedestrians.



    Traffic congestion during arrival and dismissal times poses a potential danger to our school community, it is stressful, and has a negative impact on our environment.  You can help us to alleviate this problem by taking the following steps:


    • If you must drive your student to school, please utilize both the main entrance curve and the Media Center curve for drop off.
    • Try to reduce trips by car and carpool
    • Utilize bus service if you are eligible
    • If appropriate, consider walking or biking to school



    In the afternoon, please pick up your student after 2:50 PM.  By this time the buses have usually departed and most of the senior lot is also empty.  By arriving a little later, parents will help to reduce congestion, improve traffic flow, and greatly enhance everyone’s safety.  Students are welcome to wait in the commons and they may also study in the library until 3:00 PM and until 4:15 on homework help days.


    Thanks everyone.

  • Important Staff Updates

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 12/7/2019

    Dear Families and Students,


    I am pleased to report that Mrs. Debra Pappgallo has joined Red Bank Regional as the new business administrator and board secretary.  Mrs. Pappagallo began her educational career at Red Bank Regional, first as an accountant and then as the assistant business administrator.  In her most recent role, she served as the business administrator for the Red Bank Borough School District since 2012. 


    Debra replaces Christina Galvao, who recently retired to pursue new adventures and spend more time with her family, including twin grandchildren who arrived in October.  Ms. Galvao’s careful oversight of the business office kept our fiscal position strong and ensured that we could support the people and programs that are the heart of our school. 


    On December 4, the Board of Education accepted my recommendation to appoint Ms. Barbara Correnti interim supervisor of school counseling.  Ms. Correnti served as a teacher and counselor at Kearny High School.  In 2009, she was appointed District Director of Student Personnel Services with the Belleville School District, where she worked until her retirement in July 2019.  Ms. Correnti was the 2018 Ambassador Award recipient of the New Jersey Governor's Council on Mental Health Stigma and was recognized by former Governor Richard Codey for her efforts to promote a stigma-free school environment.


    Ms. Correnti replaces Jason Sabino, who has started a new position at Watchung Hills High School.  Mr. Sabino’s time with us was relatively short but his leadership was essential to the success of a number of initiatives as well as expanding efforts to ensure all our students are ready for college and career. 


    I know everyone will join me in welcoming Mrs. Pappagallo and Ms. Correnti to the RBR team.
