District implements new life-saving policiesAED

As of September 1, 2014 all Point Pleasant Borough Schools’ students, especially the district’s student-athletes, are a lot safer in the classroom and on the playing field thanks to two new State laws that went into effect for the current school year.

The first - the Scholastic Student-Athlete Safety Act - was enacted as a means of combating cardiomegaly, or enlarged heart. Typically an inherited condition, cardiomegaly causes the heart muscle to thicken, making it harder to pump blood efficiently. It is the most common cause of sudden death among young athletes but is easily treatable if detected. READ MORE >>

Ocean Road teachers take the plunge for ALSIce Bucket Challenge

For brand new kindergarten and first grade students the first day of school can be fraught with nervous anticipation and filled with wonder about what the new day will bring. In the days leading up to that first day, these young students likely envision multiple possible outcomes and potential scenarios for how their day might transpire, but it’s unlikely that even the most vivid imagination could conceive that their first day would end with their dumping a bucket of ice water over their teacher’s head.

Each year when summer break rolls around, Point Pleasant Borough School District personnel work tirelessly and determinedly to complete a year’s worth of capital improvements during the approximately 10 weeks that students are away from the schools.

“One of the most common misconceptions surrounding the education profession is that summer is a time of uninterrupted vacation and endless down-time, when nothing could be further from the truth,” said Superintendent of Schools Vincent S. Smith. “Perhaps it’s true that for some, summer break can bring a nice period of rest and relaxation, for our district’s staff, summer break means it’s time to get to work.”

“For the ten short weeks that schools are not in session, the district’s 12-month employees are working on projects and initiatives to prepare for the coming school year,” he said. “Our teaching staff also keeps busy engaged in regular professional development classes and participating in curriculum writing consortiums, while preparing for their return to their own classrooms.
