Dear Penns Grove-Carneys Point RSD Parents, Guardians and Staff Members,
The Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District welcomes everyone back for the 2017-2018 school year! Our district will be open for staff on September 5 and 6, 2017, providing full days of professional development. Students will begin with a full day of school on September 7, 2017.
The third and final phase of the referendum has continued with the ventilation and air conditioning (HV AC) system installation in the designated classroom areas after renovating doors and windows in the schools making them more energy efficient. The renovations of the restroom facilities in the Paul W. Carleton and Penns Grove Middle Schools are nearing completion. An improved district website, easily accessible to our staff, students and community and more user-friendly, is available this year. With the new website, an App is in the process of being developed that will allow students, staff and parents to retrieve information on cell phones about the schools, events and activities. The Genesis Parent Portal now has an email address that parents can use to send messages to the portal administrator when updating and troubleshooting information for their child. The wireless infrastructure is almost completed which will expand the access points providing better connectivity to staff and students for educational purposes.
The Penns Grove-Carneys Point Regional School District recognizes the importance of strong parent and community partnerships for our children's education. As partners, we share the responsibility of supporting and guiding the children to come to school prepared to learn. With our mission of "Building a School Community of Leaders and Achievers" in mind, I encourage you to communicate effectively with the administration, teachers and staff members in your child's school to establish a strong foundation that will ensure our students and our community thrive.
My best for the coming year,
Dr. Zenaida Cobian
Superintendent of Schools
