Dear Parents/Guardians:

On behalf of the Eatontown Board of Education and Administration, I would like to welcome our students, parents, and/or caregivers back as the new school year approaches. As a school district, we are committed to “Blending Tradition and Innovation to Drive Educational Excellence.” Providing a safe and nurturing learning environment for students to grow and excel is our primary mission.

At this time, I would like to share a few important updates. First, after the school year ended, the district was notified that it received additional, one-time funding from the state and federal governments enabling the Board of Education to restore our grades 3 – 6 teaching positions for the 2023-2024 school year. Second, our schools and offices have been cleaned and maintained this summer, including the replacement of the old heating system at Margaret L. Vetter School as well as the addition of two preschool bathrooms. Our preschool program now hosts 11 free, full-day classes. Last but not least, the implementation of the Energy Savings Improvement Plan (ESIP) is almost complete and the project is generating solar power at each of the schools to offset the costs of the building improvements. It has been a busy, but productive summer.

During the 2023-2024 school year, our school community will continue working to infuse social-emotional learning in the important educational work ahead. In order to provide a quality education for all students, Eatontown Public Schools is committed to meeting students where they are and providing the necessary support to take children where they deserve to go. Moving forward, our challenge is to ensure our students’ academic as well as social-emotional needs are met by providing an equitable and nurturing educational environment for students. This school year the district is defining educational equity as follows:

Raising the achievement of all students while

  • narrowing the gaps between the highest and lowest performing students; and

  • eliminating the predictability and disproportionality of which student groups occupy the highest and lowest achievement categories.

Research tells us that relationships matter. Continuing to enhance school culture and climate across the district are valued educational goals. Students need to feel a sense of belonging and engagement when they attend school.

All Eatontown Public Schools will open on Thursday, September 7, 2023 for a one-session day. The Breakfast Program will begin on Thursday, September 7, 2023. Friday, September 8th will be a one-session day as well. Our first full day of school will be Monday, September 11, 2023. Lunch service will begin Monday, September 11th. Additional information regarding the lunch program can be found on the district’s website. School hours are listed below.

I would like to wish you and your child a wonderful school year ahead. Working together, we can ensure our students receive a first-rate education and continue to grow academically and socially. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation as we embark upon another exciting school year and work to prepare all students to meet their full potential.
