Superintendent's Message

March 2019,

SLH Community,

As we approach the Spring season with hopes the groundhog was accurate, I wanted to take a moment to update you on our referendum projects. As you've seen, the addition is well on it's way to completion. We anticipate moving Mrs. Wojcik and Mr. Forbes into their new classrooms either over the Spring Recess or shortly thereafter. By the end of March the interior lighting replacement should be completed. All lights were replaced with LED lights. The majority of lights are equipped with both occupancy sensors as well as daylight harvesting sensors. Site work has been completed connecting a previously installed dry well to our Borough sewer system. We hope that this will address the flooding issues that we used to have in the school yard near the playground. Speaking of playgrounds, we anticipate both the new Preschool playground and the regular playground to be completed over the summer. As you may have already heard the school itself will be inaccessible to community groups over the summer. As soon as the students leave, all of the rooftop HVAC units will begin being removed from the roof and the roof will come off. The new roof will be installed and NEW HVAC units will be installed. Our parking lot will be milled and repaved as well this summer. All classroom doors and interior renovations to our NEW music, preschool, and Multimedia/STEAM room will also be completed for September. The last phase of the project will take place in the Fall with the installation of the Solar Array on the roof. We appreciate everyone's patience during this process.

If I can be of assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me directly. My email address is and my phone number is 732-449-6149 extension 200.
