Dr. Meloche has released an important letter, sent in an email to all parents and staff, regarding Campus Police in our schools.
Simon's Fund is teaming up with the Cherry Hill School District to offer free heart screenings for any student aged 12-19. The screening will take place on April 21, 2018 at Cherry Hill East High School in the Library Annex located at 1750 Kresson Road. There is no cost for the screening. It has been underwritten by donations to Simon's Heart. A special thanks to the Heart House and Premier Pediatric Cardiology for donating their services.
The screening is intended for students who have never received an ECG exam or been examined by a cardiologist. The screening will look for undetected heart conditions that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death in the young, but is not a substitute for annual pediatric wellness visits. To register, you will need to complete consent, medical and family history forms. You can register online.
Haddonfield-Berlin Road (Route 561) between Ashbrook Road and South Mansfield Blvd will be down to ONE LANE IN EACH DIRECTION daily from 9 am through 3 pm starting Tuesday, 4/17/18, and lasting for approximately two months, for underground PSE&G gas main replacement work.
This work means traffic will flow in both directions using the northbound lanes – one lane moving in each direction. The work will start at Ashbrook Rd/Haddontowne Ct and will slowly progress north toward Brace Rd, with the altered traffic lanes following the work crews as they move up the road. Police will be on location and will assist motorists with local detours or turning into/from intersections as the work progresses around and through them. Additional details and customer service inquiries/communications may be obtained through the PSE&G information line, 800-436-PSEG (7734).
This area experiences heavy traffic congestion during normal weekdays, and this change in traffic pattern will create additional congestion and delays. Please seek alternate routes around this area if at all possible, utilizing Route 70 or the White Horse Pike (Rt 30) for access to I-295 and crossing over the NJ Turnpike.
Registration for CHPS School-Age Child Care (SACC) and Extended Day Child Care (EDCC) for the 2018-2019 school year is now open. Parents may register their children now online.
