First-graders who want to go to primrose schools to avoid closing

The school closings will have an impact on the schoolchildren in Newark public schools that are already struggling to keep up with the demands of the global economy.

The closures will be a stark contrast to the thousands of kids that Newark has been receiving over the last three years.

But it won’t be a permanent shift.

Newark public school officials will continue to send their students to their homes for the duration of the closures.

The closings are designed to give parents and teachers the opportunity to make the difficult choice to keep their kids in school during the closing.

As the first-grader in Newark Public Schools, I feel very privileged to have been able to help this community so many years ago.

I would like to thank my parents for everything they have done and I would also like to extend my thanks to the teachers, staff and parents who have supported me throughout my education. 

The first-grader who attended the Newark Public School has an option to continue attending the school. 

“We understand that families are being impacted by the closures and want to make sure that our students are supported during this difficult time,” said Mark Kranz, Newark Public schools vice president for communications and public engagement. 

In an emailed statement, Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said, “As a child of Newark, I understand the impact that closing a school will have on families and I want to assure them that we are taking steps to ensure the safety and security of our students.” 

The schools are being closed to make room for more classrooms, which will take place on an on-demand basis.

Newark Public’s first-grade teacher of the year, Jodie Azzariti, will be the first to be moved to another classroom in Newark. 

When asked if she felt she was a role model for the students, Azzarsi said, “Yes, I have.

I have always wanted to do this.

I am so excited to be here.” 

On the first day of the new school year, Newark school officials have asked parents to sign waivers to stay home from school.

The schools first- and second-gradet teachers will be sent home in the morning, but the first graders will be allowed to return to school at 10:30 a.m. on the following day. 

A total of 3,500 students will be placed on a waiting list for special education services, which includes help with reading and math. 

While there are more than 3,000 students at the Newark school, the school has not received any special education referrals.

The Newark school district is working with the federal government and state officials to make a plan for the return of students.
