April 2, 2020

Good afternoon, Holmdel Families!

Congratulations to all on the end of our third marking period!  I hope this communication finds you in good health and a positive mindset. 

Over the last few years, I have relished the opportunity to wish you all a wonderful Spring Break. While we need a break more than ever this year, I recognize that for most, this Spring Break will be vastly different from those of the past and I am sure that this is disappointing for many. Rather than dwelling on what may be missing or different, I encourage you to continue to focus on the positives with your children and to seek out the silver lining in each day.      

I am so proud of the way our community has supported one another during this difficult time. The perseverance, patience, empathy, and creativity demonstrated by our students, staff and families throughout this public health emergency has been truly inspirational.

As a thank you to all of our staff members, many of whom have not stopped working since Friday, March 13th, Spring Break will begin at 11:00 a.m. tomorrow.  If you or your children have questions for teachers or counselors, please note that as per our school calendar, tomorrow is an “early dismissal” day. 

Again, thank you for all of your feedback and positive support during this time. Please look for a brief survey about our remote learning program in your inbox tomorrow.  I hope that when we return to remote learning on Monday, April 13th, the worst of the pandemic will be over so we can all begin to plan to see one another again in person. 

Yours in Education, 

Robert A. McGarry, Ed.D.

Superintendent of Schools
