• COVID 19 Update June 26th

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 6/26/2020

    Dear Colleagues, Families, and Students,

     

    This update will be brief and address two items: In-person graduation plans for Thursday, July 16 and expectations for summer academic assignments. 

     

    In-Person Graduation on July 16: In order to comply with health and safety directives of the Governor, the program must be limited to seniors only.  Based on a student poll, our seniors indicated they wanted to be together as a whole class for the ceremony.  Since the Class of 2020 numbers approximately 320 graduates, we will not be able to accommodate guests because total attendance is restricted to 500 people.  We regret that guests cannot attend but we were very pleased that our families were able to fully participate in our senior day activities on June 12.   Here are the guidelines that all seniors must follow for the program:

     

    • Graduates should arrive at 9:30 AM and park in the east section of the faculty lot, closest to Hance Road.
    • Students will check-in at a station at the “Cannons.”  They will then be directed to line-up for the ceremony.
    • Students should wear their caps and gowns.
    • Masks must be worn at all times and social distancing rules will be strictly enforced.
    • The program will begin at approximately 10:00 AM and conclude around 11:00 AM.
    • Students will be required to leave immediately after the ceremony.  (We hope to hold a senior celebration picnic or barbecue at a later time.)
    • The rain date for the event will be Friday, July 17.

     

    Expectations for Summer Assignments: In a departure from past practice, summer work is being assigned only in those classes where it is essential to meet curriculum and program requirements (These assignments have already been posted).  For other courses, summer reading and enrichment activities will be posted on our website starting next week.  Summer reading work will not be graded when students return to school, nor will students be assessed on the reading when they return to school.  The focus, instead, will be on enrichment and individual growth.  Parents and guardians can support reading by setting time limits on phone and screen and setting a good example.  After this spring, we could all use a break!  (Please see my 12/5/18 BLOG for additional information about encouraging young people to enjoy reading.) 

     

    Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Louis Moore

    Superintendent

    June 18, 2020

    Dear Colleagues, Families, and Students,

     

    Today is the last official day of school for students and this will be the last weekly update. 

     

    Congratulations again to all our seniors and we hope that you enjoyed the “Buc Brigade” last night.  Thanks again to all the parents, cheering teachers and staff who made our wonderful Senior Celebration on June 12 such a success.  We are still planning to hold an in-person graduation program on July 16 and we will share more details next week.  Please remember that we must follow all state and local health and safety guidelines.

     

    Important updates:

    Final Grades/Summer Bridge Program:  Final grades will be posted on Wednesday, June 24. All students who receive an “Incomplete” grade in core classes will be required to enroll in our summer bridge program to finish their academic work.  A letter will be sent from Mr. Clark with details about the program.  

     

    Property Pick-up for grades 9-11: We will be sending details out next week.

     

    Fall Sports: School leadership is meeting on Tuesday, June 23 to review the latest guidelines for practices and facility use.  

     

    Supporting RBR Families: These local charities are assisting families who have been negatively impacted by the crisis.  Please reach out if you need support and also consider making a donation if you can.  We hope to be sharing plans to extend our meal assistance program this summer through our partnership with Red Bank Borough Schools.  

     

    Better days are sure to come and I look forward to seeing everyone so I can extend thanks in person.  For now, this note will have to suffice.  (Please accept my apologies in advance since there are bound to be omissions.)  Special shout-outs are due to my fellow administrators (Julius Clark, Rob Donohoe, Del Dal Pra, Lisa Boyle, Alan Choback, John Daniels, David Fusco, Tom McDonough, Debra Pappagallo, Carly Londrigan, Erin Pinto, Suzanne Keller, Manny Pabon, and Jessica Verdiglione), the central office staff (Madeline Ciancio, Lisa McCoy, Rosanna Ferrugio, Debbie Cittadino, Karen Bradley, Maureen Byrne) and the Board of Education.  Senior class advisors Frank O’Shea and Eric Melone and senior parents Jessica Borriello, Ciara Kelly, and Corinne Thygeson all made great contributions to our efforts to celebrate the Class of 2020.  Thanks also to our Police Chiefs Darren McConnell, Robert Turner, and Daniel Shaffery and our SRO Andrew Smith for all they did to coordinate the Buc Brigade.  The fire trucks and vehicles were all driven by the extraordinary volunteers from Little Silver, Red Bank, and Shrewsbury.  

     

    RBR’s administrators, teachers, support staff, case managers, and counselors are heroes.  Their efforts allowed our instructional program to continue and they provided essential support to our students and families.  Immense thanks are due to the tech department for all that was done to ensure everyone had reliable access to the tools they needed and RBR maintenance and administrative assistants who kept the essential services operating.  Finally, bravo to our students and families for keeping up with their school work and demonstrating maturity and courage under difficult circumstances.  We are proud of you!

     

    I will continue to provide periodic updates during the summer as we prepare for resuming our school program in September.  Final guidelines are still being developed by the NJ DOE and I will share the news as it becomes available.  

     

    Right now I want to again thank the entire RBR community and with everyone a restful and safe summer.  Please do not hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or concerns.

     

    Sincerely,

     

    Louis Moore

    Dear Colleagues, Students, and  Families,

     

    Please review the following update:  

     

    #1.  Keep it up BUCs!  We are very proud of everyone for all their efforts during this difficult time.  Make sure you finish strong by completing all your assignments and submitting your work.  We are committed to your success and will not let you enroll in new courses until you have finished your work for this academic year.

     

    #2. Thanks to all those students and staff who participated in the discussion on race, equality, and justice hosted by Mr. Clark on Thursday.   Many perspectives and insights were shared and it was a great session.  We will continue this conversation and also continue to share ideas on how we can improve our school and society.  

     

    #3. Three important events are planned for seniors next week: Caps and Gowns will be distributed on Tuesday, June 9 after 2:30 PM and our senior awards program will be shared remotely on June 10.  Most important is our Senior Day/Photo Day on Friday June 12.  Information was sent to all senior families earlier this week and has also been posted on our website.  Seniors also need to complete their post high school survey in Naviance. Clarification: The link for the virtual graduation will be released on June 17.  No events are planned for June 18.

     

    #4. The NJ DOE is requesting that all parents complete a survey by June 8 on efforts to plan for the reopening of schools.  Here is the survey link: https://es.surveymonkey.com/r/V8HZ2MQ.  If you have any questions, please contact the Department’s Office of Civic and Social Engagement at civicandsocial@doe.nj.gov<mailto:civicandsocial@doe.nj.gov>.

  • COVID 19 Update May 29th

    Posted by Dr. Louis Moore on 5/29/2020

    Dear Colleagues, Students, and Families,

     

     

    We want to start with an update on graduation plans.  As promised, Gov. Murphy and the NJ Department of Education released new guidelines for conducting graduation ceremonies, including modified in-person programs after July 6.  Unfortunately even with these new guidelines, an in-person program remains impractical for RBR.  As the situation evolves, we hope to schedule an in-person program for later in July if new guidelines make this possible.

     

     

    In light of this, it makes sense to continue with our previously announced plan to develop a virtual ceremony in which all our graduates will be represented.  The program will feature important aspects of our traditional ceremony, including music and student speeches.  We will also record the program for all families.  

     

     

    As we gear up for commencement, please be aware of these upcoming dates:

     

     

    Friday, June 5: The second summative assignment for Seniors is due.

     

     

    Monday, June 8, and Tuesday, June 9: Last check-in for Seniors in good academic standing.

     

     

    Tuesday, June 9: Graduation gowns will be delivered to each senior.  (Details will be sent next week.)

     

     

    Friday, June 12: Seniors and two guests will be scheduled to come to RBR in their caps and gowns for their graduation photograph.  This photo will also be incorporated into our virtual commencement program.  A detailed schedule will be sent to families next week with specific times for each graduate to arrive at the high school but please save the date!

     

     

    Other senior reminders: 

     

     

    Yearbooks: Yearbooks will be delivered to RBR in early June.  A distribution plan will be shared with seniors.

     

     

    Senior Awards: The program will be presented on-line on June 10.  

     

     

    Senior Celebration: If allowed, we are also planning to hold a senior picnic or barbecue later this summer. If this is not possible, an alternative event will be planned for the fall.

     

     

    Questions: If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Clark or Dr. Moore. (JClark@rbrhs.org or LMoore@rbrhs.org.)

     

     

    Sincerely,

     

     

    John Garofalo, President, RBR Board of Education

    Louis Moore, Superintendent

    Julius Clark, Principal

    May 15, 2020

     

    Dear Colleagues, Students, and Families,

     

    Most of this week’s update addresses issues related to our Senior class but we wanted to share it with everyone because we are all thinking of our soon-to-be graduates at this time of year.

     

    Although in-person events are restricted, we are determined to make our Senior celebrations memorable for the class of 2020.  Today over 60 RBR staff-members and parents distributed lawn signs and blankets to all of our rising graduates.  Every town was covered, from Union Beach to Belmar to Millstone as well as Little Silver, Red Bank, and Shrewsbury!  Thanks again to everyone who helped to make this possible, especially Corinne Thygeson, Jessica Borriello, Ciara Kelly, Mr. O’Shea, Mr. Melone, and Mr. Donohoe for all their contributions.

     

    We continue to explore options and ideas about graduation, yearbook distribution, and an alternative event for the prom and the senior picnic.  

     

    Regardless of what is put in place, we know that virtual plans are not a substitute for the loss of our traditional senior programs and we want you to know we share in your disappointment.  That said, we wanted to update everyone on our current plans.

     

    Graduation: Final arrangements will be shared as soon as the NJ DOE and NJ State Police finalize their guidelines. At present, we are envisioning two ceremonies.  The first will be held on June 18, 2020, as scheduled, and will be a virtual ceremony in which all our graduates will be represented.  The program will include important aspects of our traditional ceremony, including music and student speeches.  We will also record the program for all families.  We also hope to schedule a second in-person program for late July.  Planning and scheduling will not be possible until we receive further directives and guidelines from Governor Murphy.

     

    Yearbooks: Yearbooks will be delivered to RBR in early June.  A distribution plan is being developed and will be shared with seniors.

     

    Senior Awards: The program will be presented on-line on June 10.  Recipients will receive notice of their award and directions to access the program soon.

     

    Early Dismissal: The last day for senior students in good academic standing (those who have enough credits to graduate) will be on Friday, June 12.  The last week will be reserved for students to submit assignments or extra work if not in good academic standing.

     

    Senior Montage: Thanks to everyone for submitting your photos.  Mr. Grillo has been hard at work putting the montage together.  Be on the lookout for the final product on Wednesday, May 20.

     

    Senior Celebration: If allowed, we are also planning to hold a senior picnic or barbecue in August. If this is not possible, an alternative event will be planned for the fall.

     

    Questions: If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Clark or Dr. Moore. (JClark@rbrhs.org or LMoore@rbrhs.org.)

     

    We know the current crisis has hit our seniors and their families especially hard.  We also know that we will come together and provide the Class of 2020 with a proper send-off.  All the best everyone and stay safe,

     

    Sincerely,

    We are very proud of our wonderful students who have responded to a challenging and unprecedented crisis with great courage and maturity.  As we enter the closing weeks of school, we want to urge everyone to keep their spirits up and to keep up with their school work.  Finish the year strong everyone and keep reading and don’t forget to get some fresh air.

     

    Planning for senior celebrations:  Thanks to Corinne Thygeson, Jessica Borriello, Ciara Kelly, Mr. O’Shea, Mr. Melone, and Mr. Donohoe for all their contributions.  We also had a great meeting with the senior class council and appreciate their input.  All seniors and their families are advised to be on the look-out Friday for an important delivery to kick-off graduation season.  More details will be released on Monday so stay tuned. 

     

    Fundraiser for LunchBreak: Students in our VPA program have organized a “virtual” concert at 7 PM on Friday, May 15 to raise funds for LunchBreak, a local charity providing food, clothing, and other resources to assist families.  Thanks to Ms. Boyle, Chris Hall, and Catherine Creed for their efforts to pull this together.  The program flyer is posted on the RBR website.

    May 5, 2020

     

    Dear Colleagues, Families, and Students,

     

    Yesterday Gov. Murphy announced that New Jersey schools will remain closed for the rest of the academic year.  While we would have all liked to return for the rest of the year, the health and safety of our community mandates the continued closure.  As we have done since March 10, we will continue to respond to the challenges posed by the emergency with courage, compassion, and clear thinking.

     

    While all of us are impacted, the news hits our seniors and their families especially hard.  We will continue planning to celebrate graduation and other milestones that honor this exceptional class.  The school administration will be meeting with class advisors and student representatives this week to hear their perspective and I will be sending an update soon.

     

    On behalf of the Board of Education, the school administration, and the entire staff, we share in your disappointment but we are also confident that we will emerge from the challenge stronger than ever. Stay strong and safe everyone. 

     

    Go Bucs!

     

    Sincerely,

    Lou Moore

    Dear Colleagues, Families, and Students,

     

    As we complete our eighth week of remote instruction, we want to salute the efforts of the entire RBR family and all that’s been done to respond to the crisis over the previous weeks. Next week is teacher appreciation week and this is an appropriate time to extend special thanks to our teachers who have continued to go “beyond the call” in responding to an unprecedented set of challenges. 

     

    With the structured meeting times on Mondays and Tuesdays, students and teachers are benefiting from increased opportunities for interaction.  In addition to these changes, you should be aware of these features of the revised online instructional program:

     

    • Assignment due dates for each subject have been established and no assignments are due on Mondays.
    • Students are encouraged to utilize “office hours” on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday for extra help and support.
    • Students are required to check-in during the required meeting times on Monday and Tuesday.  Please do not be late. 

     

    Scheduling for 2020-21:  Information on the scheduling process for next year’s freshmen has been sent out and is also available on our website under the school counseling tab.  At this time, current students should have submitted all their course requests. 

     

    Senior Celebrations: Regardless of whether or not we re-open this spring, we will find ways to salute our graduates and we will be sharing updates next week.  In the meantime, please see the message below from Buc Backers.

     

    Calling All Senior Buc Parents! 

     

    Your senior has worked so hard and it is now almost time for him/her to enter into the next chapter of their life!  Mr. Grillo from the RBR VPA will be putting together a picture montage featuring one picture of each senior that will highlight this. The picture should be representative of next steps, best memory at RRB, or anything else that is important to him or her!  If you have already submitted a photo and would like to change based on these expanded guidelines- no problem!

     

    Please submit your photo by May 8th including full name to RBRSENIORPICS@GMAIL.COMThe format should be JPEG.  Please also use the landscape format.  Let's make this unusual year end as special as it should be for our seniors! 

     

    In addition, lawn signs for senior families will be arriving soon to kick-off the graduation season.  Please contact Jessica Borriello at 732-921-6323 for further information and if you would like to volunteer with the distribution effort.

    Dear Colleagues, Families, and Students,

     

    Welcome to the final marking period of our academic year!  Continue to do your best to keep up with your work and make it a strong finish.  Please note that Governor Murphy has extended his school closure directive to May 15. By that date, we will be advised on whether we need to continue the closure.

     

    Here are a some updates:

     

    Marking Period 3 Grades: The Genesis Portal is open and grades have been posted.   In this unprecedented situation, the following guidelines apply to MP 3:  65% is the minimum grade all students can receive and work assigned during the remote learning portion of the marking period will only be factored in if it produces a higher final grade.

     

     

    Scheduling for 2020-21: At this time, current students should have submitted all their course requests. Please reach out to your guidance counselor next week if you have not done so.  Information on the scheduling process for next year’s freshmen will be sent out next week.

     

     

    Modifications to Virtual School Plan for Marking Period 4: All students must be completing the required check-in on Mondays (A-Day Classes) and Tuesdays (B-Day Classes) for the Marking Period 4.  Students who neglect to do so may be subject to academic consequences, including loss of credit for classes missed and you may receive a check-in from local police.  Everyone should review the more detailed explanation of the virtual school plan that is posted on the RBR website.

     

     

    Senior Celebrations: Lawn signs for senior families will be arriving soon to kick-off graduation season.  Please contact Jessica Borriello at 732-921-6323 for further information.  Regardless of whether or not we re-open this spring, we will find a way to salute our graduates.  Mr. Clark, Mr. Donohoe, and I will be reaching out to students soon to discuss options and gather ideas; we’ve already had some good discussions with advisors and parents.  We appreciate those of you who have shared ideas already.
