Dear Parents and Guardians,

Based on Governor Murphy's press conference earlier this afternoon and the issuance of Executive Order #107, urging all residents to stay at home, the Berlin Township School District will be extending REMOTE LEARNING through April 9.  Spring break begins on April 10 through April 19.  A GRAB and GO breakfast lunch will continue to be available for all eligible students on Mondays, from 8:30 -10:30 am at DDE Middle School. Learning packets and activities for March 31 through April 9 will be available on the district website and at each school.  Additional information will be sent out from each school notifying you when the work will be available online or to be picked up.  Thank you for your continued patience and assistance during this time. 

Best wishes for all of you to stay safe and healthy. 


Edythe B. Austermuhl, Ed. D.

Welcome Back!

Dear J.F.K. Parents & Guardians,

It is with much excitement and great anticipation to welcome you to the 2019 – 2020 school year as Principal of the John F. Kennedy Elementary School. I trust that all of you have enjoyed the change of pace that the summer brings to refresh and rejuvenate.  We are looking forward to working together with you to ensure another productive and successful school year at the John F. Kennedy School.

Student Arrival and Dismissal Procedures – If you are dropping off/picking up, please park on Mount Vernon Avenue. If you plan on using the front loop, please do not park your car inside the loop as this impedes our arrival/dismissal process and is dangerous to other families dropping off/picking up. Additionally, once your student(s) have safely exited on the curb side, please pull away from the curb to allow space for other families still arriving.

Note: Please remember to bring photo ID when picking up your student(s).

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at mmurphy@btwpschools.org or the Main Office Secretary; Janett Masterson at jmasterson@btwpschools.org or via phone (856) 767-9480 ext. 1310.
