Free Youth Heart Screenings Offered At Cherry Hill East 4/21/18
Free Youth Heart Screenings Offered At Cherry Hill East 4/21/18

Simon's Fund is teaming up with the Cherry Hill School District to offer free heart screenings for any student aged 12-19. The screening will take place on April 21, 2018 at Cherry Hill East High School in the Library Annex located at 1750 Kresson Road. There is no cost for the screening. It has been underwritten by donations to Simon's Heart. A special thanks to the Heart House and Premier Pediatric Cardiology for donating their services.

The screening is intended for students who have never received an ECG exam or been examined by a cardiologist. The screening will look for undetected heart conditions that can lead to sudden cardiac arrest and death in the young, but is not a substitute for annual pediatric wellness visits.

To register, you will need to complete consent, medical and family history forms. You can register online.

We are in need of volunteers. Students, adults and parents who are nurses are asked to donate some time on this Saturday, April 21.

Volunteer Time Slots:

8:15-10 am

10-12 pm

12-2 pm

Please contact Eileen Reilly at High School East ereilly@chclc.org or (856) 424-2222 x 2524 if you are able to spare any time or if your children need community service hours.

Delays Expected on Haddonfield-Berlin Road through Mid-June 2018
Delays Expected on Haddonfield-Berlin Road through Mid-June 2018

Haddonfield-Berlin Road (Route 561) between Ashbrook Road and South Mansfield Blvd will be down to ONE LANE IN EACH DIRECTION daily from 9 am through 3 pm starting Tuesday, 4/17/18, and lasting for approximately two months, for underground PSE&G gas main replacement work.

This work means traffic will flow in both directions using the northbound lanes – one lane moving in each direction. The work will start at Ashbrook Rd/Haddontowne Ct and will slowly progress north toward Brace Rd, with the altered traffic lanes following the work crews as they move up the road. Police will be on location and will assist motorists with local detours or turning into/from intersections as the work progresses around and through them. Additional details and customer service inquiries/communications may be obtained through the PSE&G information line, 800-436-PSEG (7734).

This area experiences heavy traffic congestion during normal weekdays, and this change in traffic pattern will create additional congestion and delays. Please seek alternate routes around this area if at all possible, utilizing Route 70 or the White Horse Pike (Rt 30) for access to I-295 and crossing over the NJ Turnpike.

Board of Education Adopts Resolution on Underfunding in State Aid to Schools
Board of Education Adopts Resolution on Underfunding in State Aid to Schools
bwilson

The Board of Education on March 13, 2018 adopted a Resolution calling for New Jersey Commissioner of Education Dr. Lamont Repollet and New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy either to put forth a spending plan that fully funds the School Funding Reform Act (SFRA) or, in the event the SFRA cannot be fully funded, make sure the funds available for state aid to schools be fairly and proportionally divided per the SFRA. The resolution further resolved that if full redistribution is not possible this year, that sufficient additional monies be allocated to Underadequacy Aid to close the adequacy gap. A copy of the resolution has been present to the New Jersey Commissioner of Education, the Governor of New Jersey, the State Senator and the State Assemblypersons from Legislative District 6, and the Mayor and Council President of Cherry Hill.
