Dear Travell Parents/Guardians: Summer is almost here! Medications for students may
not be stored at school over the summer. If your child has a medication in the health office, kindly pick it up at the end of the day on the last day of school June 22th at 12:45pm or on the following day, June 23rd.

Any medication not picked up for the summer will be discarded, including Epi-pens, inhalers or “as needed” medications. 


If you are unable to pick up your child’s medication during those times, please contact me prior to 6/22 to set up an appointment to do so. 


Have a wonderful, safe and healthy summer and I look forward to seeing you again in the fall!

Dear Travell Families,
We’re very excited to announce that the Travell HSA is once again supporting the One School, One Book initiative. This year’s book is Alvin Ho: Allergic to Girls, School and Other Scary Things by Lenore Look. Here is the Scholastic link to the book: Alvin Ho Scholastic
The program will begin on Monday, January 24, with distribution of books to the youngest child in each family and a special video shown in homerooms. On our One School, One Book website, we will have chapter discussion questions and fun activities. If you send photos of your family to Ms. DeNunzio or your classroom teacher, we’ll post those on the website, too! Finally, our website is the place you’ll be able to access chapter readings by special guests! As a school, we will read chapters each week, with a culminating activity in each grade on Friday, February 18.
A special thank you goes to our HSA and to our school media specialist, Ms. Mary DeNunzio, for putting together this amazing experience
Let’s get reading, Travell!

Sincerely,

Brian Ross

Dear Travell Families,

Preliminary International Expo planning is underway (participants should sign up at link below); however, we do not currently have enough volunteers to lead and coordinate the event.  

If you are interested in serving on the Expo Committee - or even learning a bit more about the role - please be in touch with Christina Morbelli:  [email protected]

If we are unable to fill the Expo Planning Committee, unfortunately, this cornerstone event will not be able to take place.  We know how beloved this event is within our community and are grateful for volunteers' willingness to assist with the coordination and execution.

Thank you,
Travell HSA

Students are considered fully vaccinated 2 weeks after the second dose is given.

If you would like to voluntarily provide your child's COVID-19 vaccination card for contact tracing purposes, please email vaccination cards (once both doses are completed) to: [email protected]

Hello, Travell Families,
Here are a few important updates:

Outdoor Lunch
--With temperatures frequently in the 40-degree range, tomorrow (Thursday, November 18) will be the final day of the outdoor lunch pilot. Beginning Friday, all students will eat in the Tiger’s Den.


Parking Reminders (Full Guidelines Below)
--Please do not park on the school side of Bogert Ave. from 8:00-9:00 on school days. Follow the signs for student drop-off.

--Only district personnel and those drivers with official handicapped credentials should use the Bogert cutout before, during, or after school.

Spirit Fridays -
-Remember to wear your Travell or Ridgewood gear or colors every Friday! 
Have a great day!

Sincerely,
Brian Ross

TRAVELL SAFETY: DROP-OFF & PARKING

DROP-OFF
Please have your child seated on the curb side of the car, drop them off and continue towards Meadowbrook. Teachers are posted at the door to make sure that every child that is dropped off enters the building.

There are two drop-off areas: One on Bogert Avenue and one on Fairfield Avenue

On Bogert Avenue - drop-off is in front of the school, after the island. Do not drop off at the island and do not block the driveway on either side of the island, as it must be accessible to school vans. During school hours, Bogert is one-way.

On Fairfield - drop-off is at the cut-out on the school side leading to the playground/ball field area. Fairfield is two-way at all times and parking is illegal on both sides of Fairfield north of Downs. Refer to the student drop-off may on the next page.

PARKING
If you plan to park your car to escort your child into school, you must leave the drop-off area and park beyond the school. Parked cars impede the flow of traffic and endanger the children. Handicapped parking is available on both sides of the school for those with official credentials.

Reminders for absence due to illness according the the New Jersey Department of Health Guidelines for Schools:


1. Provide specific symptoms.

When reporting an absence for your child, please list their specific symptoms. 

Please refrain from giving “cold” or “allergies” as a reason for absence unless this diagnosis has been given by a doctor. (A COVID-19 test may still be required.) 

If symptoms are not provided, the nurse will need to contact you in order to obtain this information.


If your child gets tested for COVID-19, please let the school nurse know and send the results to [email protected]


2. Keep siblings home.

If your child is staying home because of an illness (per your symptom checker email), all siblings must also remain home until the sick child receives a negative COVID-19 test result. (Likewise, if a parent or other household member is ill, all members of the household must remain home until the sick person receives a negative COVID-19 test result.)


3. Visit the COVID-19 Dashboard.

Visit the RPS COVID-19 Dashboard for more information such as local testing sites and travel recommendations from the CDC. Our region’s current activity level is Moderate or yellow.

Start Strong Testing - Week of October 4-October 8 - Grades 4-5: RPS elementary schools will administer the New Jersey Department of Education’s Start Strong assessments.

Travell students in grades 4 and 5 will test in the areas of English Language Arts and Mathematics on Wednesday, October 6 and Thursday, October 7. Each session will be 60 minutes long. Once the state releases assessment data, the district will share that information with families.

  • Every Friday is Spirit Day! Remind your child to wear Travell or Ridgewood colors!


Thank you!

Snack & Lunch Nut Policy Reminder

Snack:

Classrooms are peanut and tree nut free. Please send in a healthy snack that does not contain these food items. 

Using a dedicated "snack bag" is a great way to make sure your child knows which food is meant for snack time.

Lunch:

Any foods may be brought in to be eaten for lunch, including tree nut and peanut products. 

Your child may be asked to move so he or she is not sitting directly next to a student with a food allergy.
