Quick Questions and Answers
Are your school gymnasiums open in the evening for local residents to walk for exercise purposes? Thanks.
Because staffing is required to keep our buildings open after hours, the gymnasiums in our schools are not open to the public in the evening except for specific events.
Please provide an update on the ADA projects that were to be done this summer.
Assistant Superintendent/Board Secretary Mrs. Lynn Shugars will provide an update regarding these projects to the Board of Education at the Board Work Session on Tuesday, August 13, 2019 at 7 pm in the Malberg Administration Building Board Room. The meeting also will be live streamed. We will share information online about the projects after that meeting.
It appears there is a new company for the lunch account (PaySchools Central). I still have funds in the MySchoolBucks account from last year. Will the funds transfer?
Yes. The Cherry Hill Public Schools has changed the meal payment system from MySchoolBucks to PaySchools Central. Any money remaining in your MySchoolBucks account from last year will automatically transfer over to your new PaySchools Central account when you register for a PaySchools account. A step-by-step guide to signing up for PaySchools Central is available online. Please note that our District app, available for free on the App Store and on Google Play, has been updated to include PaySchools Central rather than MySchoolBucks.
When will the PARCC results from the 2018/2019 school year be added to Genesis?
We expect to post students' 2018-2019 PARCC results on Genesis by the end of September. Parents will be notified when the results are posted.
