Nutley Community,

In light of the recent events in the Middle East, we thought it was important to reach out to the Nutley community.

First and foremost, the District condemns all acts of terrorism, violence and hatred. We know that students may be affected by the current conflict and the graphic images and content on social media and news outlets. Please know that each district school has a counselor available should a student feel shaken or have the need to speak to a staff member.

In addition, teaching resources have been provided to our district staff should conversations develop in class about this topic.

As always, the District considers the safety and wellbeing of our staff and students to be our top priority. Our thoughts are with all the families impacted by these attacks.
