Our humanities supervisor, Grace Chun, was recently highlighted by News 12 for her work in learning about and promoting Asian American and Pacific Islander history. She is part of a special cohort in the state to ensure visibility and representation of AAIP in our classrooms and schools. In Cresskill, we believe our curriculum should contain "mirrors" where students can see themselves represented and "windows" that allow them to see the experiences of others. We are grateful for the work our entire curriculum department is doing to bring awareness of the diverse world we live in. Here is the article and video: https://newjersey.news12.com/educators-gather-at-fdu-for-program-to-learn-how-to-teach-asian-american-and-pacific-islander-history

Update - Power is restored but the building will remain closed tonight until fully inspected. We expect school to resume in the morning as usual. However, the AC will not be functioning. Students and staff should dress for comfort.

At 5 PM students will no longer be able to access the building and it will be closed until full power is restored. We anticipate this will be the case and school will resume normally tomorrow. However, students and staff are advised to dress comfortably tomorrow as the AC will not be operational in almost all of the building. Thank you again for your understanding and patience. Additionally, thank you again to our first responders and staff for keeping our students safe!

Thank you everyone for your patience. We do have an update on the fire. It was contained in the HVAC chiller on the roof of the high school. There was no additional damage to the roof or school. Our staff will be able to access the building after dismissal but not our students until an electrician is on site. Parents can pick up their children at the rec center.

Students are now being evacuated to the recreation center. We will set up the system for dismissal from there. Students and staff will not be permitted to return to the building until it is fully cleared. All belongings must remain until that time. We appreciate your patience as the situation evolves. Sincere thanks goes out to our emergency services. They have been organized, professional, and timely to ensure our building, students, and staff are safe. They are the best!

Thank you to Filco for a generous donation of $5,000. We plan to put the funds towards the repair and upgrade of the digital sign for the district. While more fundraising is needed, it's a great start for that project. Thank you Filco!
