On Monday May 15, 2017 we received notification from our Water Testing Laboratory that the routine testing of the well water at JM Tawes Technology & Career Center had indicated the presence of coliforms (bacteria). The level of contamination was minimal, however, we are required to take corrective action to address this concern. We immediately notified staff and students via e-mail and
posted signage that the water from sinks and drinking fountains was not to be consumed. We are currently providing bottled water for consumption and for cooking. Click on the title and then on the attachment to read the complete memo regarding the above.
On May 16, 2017 at its monthly meeting, the Somerset County Board of Education approved a calendar adjustment that will only impact students at Princess Anne Elementary School and Greenwood Elementary School. The re-alignment of grade spans for the upcoming school year warrants the need for time to allow teachers and staff at both schools to move and relocate between and within these schools. Therefore, students attending Princess Anne and Greenwood Elementary Schools will be dismissed early on Monday June 12 and Tuesday June 13. These two days will be half days only for PAES and GES.
