Soda Tabs to Support the RMH

Please join us in support of the Ronald McDonald House of Southern New Jersey. From September until June we will be collecting soda tabs. Please bring them into the AES main office at any time throughout the year. Collecting aluminum can tabs is a great way to teach kids about service and the importance of recycling while raising funds to support the daily operations of the House. If you have any questions please contact Kim Hoffman at khoffman@lumberton.k12.nj.us.

Scheduled Network Maintenance on Friday, September 22

Please be aware that our school district network will be taken offline at 6:30pm on Friday, September 22nd for maintenance. We anticipate the maintenance to take between 4 – 6 hours.

During this time you will not have access to Genesis – Parent Access. Student Chromebooks will still be able to access Google Classroom/Documents/Etc.

Staff will be able to access their e-mail, so e-mail communication will be unaffected by this network maintenance.

Our website will be fully functional and we will post updates on the homepage with the progress of our network maintenance efforts.

Thanks,
