In April, the school district, in collaboration with representatives from the Passaic County Department of Human Services, hosted a Community Panel Discussion on the topic, Emotional, Academic and Behavioral Challenges facing Children & Families in a Post-COVID World. The event offered parents and families a number of resources that are available to those in need. One outcome of this event was a request to provide some of these resources to those who were not able to attend. Please refer to the information below which provides an overview and access to a number of services that may be of use to you or a member of your family.
