    Dear Forest Avenue School Families:                                                                                                      


    Forest Avenue School is looking forward to welcoming children back to school on September 3rd, 2019!  We have been working hard to prepare for the first day of school.  I hope your family has been able to spend some time together this summer, both relaxing and enjoying the company of family and friends.  Before long, we will be on another exciting journey of learning and growing!


    As we head into the new school year, I urge all parents to closely review the important policies, procedures and practices addressed in our Forest Avenue School Parent/Student Handbooks, which are posted on the school website.  While our Main Office is always happy to provide information and answer parent questions, many frequently asked questions and other important information will be covered within our handbooks.  I would especially like to call your attention to information pertaining to life-threatening food allergies.  Families new to Forest Avenue School may be surprised by our school’s policies and practices regarding food in school.  We strive to uphold NJ’s nutritional policies and allergy guidelines, which serve to ensure the safety of the increasing numbers of youngsters with very serious life-threatening food allergies.


    As always, please contact the Main Office at any time with questions.  Ms. Cathy Ciccone, our Forest School Secretary, and I are more than happy to speak with you.  Continue to be on the look-out for further information and notices throughout the school year!
