As we approach the new school year, the Superintendent has a new message for students, parents and staff. Part of the message reads, "It is no secret that Somerset County has a long-standing reputation for quality instruction and high expectations for all students. This is a direct reflection of the efforts of dedicated staff and administration, supportive parents that value education, students that strive for success and a community that cares about its school system" On our homepage, click on About Us and then on the Superintendent's Message to read Dr. Gaddis' complete remarks.

An examination of the reconfiguration of grades at Princess Anne Elementary School and Greenwood Elementary School uncovered that "special permission" requests for student transfers was a factor contributing to capacity concerns. Therefore, it was necessary to re-examine the criteria for "special permission" approval. Parents and guardians are reminded that any and all requests for their child to transfer schools must be submitted in writing to the Superintendent by July 10, 2015. Hard copies of this letter can be picked up at the office of the student's home school. Due to the roof construction at Greenwood Elementary School, those parents can pick up a hard copy of the letter at the front office of Princess Anne Elementary School.
