2018-2019 Calendar

The 2018-2019 calendar was approved at last night’s Board of Education meeting and can be found HERE.


INCLEMENT WEATHER / EMERGENCY CLOSINGS

INCLEMENT WEATHER/EMERGENCY CLOSINGS: We are now into the winter season, and it is important for everyone to be prepared for emergency closings. These are most often caused by weather, but can also occur when a boiler breaks or similar mechanical failure happens. Please have a plan in place for your children should the need for an emergency/early closing occur.

In the event of the need for an emergency closing, the district utilizes an automated phone calling system, Blackboard Connect. For delayed openings and before-school closings, Blackboard Connect will call ONLY the HOME NUMBER listed in our database to confirm that school is closed or delayed.

Always verify closings through the Lumberton School District Website: www.lumberton.k12.nj.us or RVTV Comcast Channel 19/FiOS Channel 40. Emergency closings are also broadcast on standard news outlets between 6:30 and 8:30 a.m. Lumberton’s Emergency Closing Number is 702. In the event of an emergency early closure, Blackboard Connect will dial THREE numbers in the following order as applicable: home, mom’s cell, dad’s cell.

Important Parking Lot Safety Information

Dear Lumberton Parents and Guardians,

With school in session well into the first marking period, now is a good time to send a reminder about parking lot driving etiquette. Recently concerns have arisen about children’s safety in the school parking lots. Many vehicles that are dropping off and picking up students are not paying attention to basic safety, courtesy, and traffic laws. The district is working with the Lumberton Police Department to ensure that parents follow traffic laws and parking lot safety rules when driving on district property, especially during school arrival and dismissal times. During this school year, township police will be regularly stationing themselves in school parking lots to monitor drivers. They may issue warnings or citations to those who do not follow approved traffic patterns or who drive at excessive rates of speed. Each school has communicated the appropriate traffic pattern to follow when dropping off or picking up children; please follow these rules and be mindful of pedestrians and other vehicles at all times. The safety of our students, staff members, and visitors is everyone’s responsibility and only by working together can we ensure that those who come to our schools can do so without risk or harm.

Thank you,

Lumberton Township School District

No Place for Hate

Lumberton Schools have applied to become a No Place for Hate District for the 2017-2018 school year.  This includes: FLW, AES, BRS and LMS.  We are thrilled to have this opportunity to become a part of this organization.  These activities will promote respect through active learning projects that address bullying and hatred that will lead to a more positive school climate.
