Dear Parent/Guardian:

On behalf of the Board of Education, the administration, central office personnel, and the entire school staff-- we want to welcome you and your child to the 2019-2020 school year at Memorial. We are eagerly anticipating the opportunity to engage with your child and to offer a wealth of educationally enriching experiences. It is our mission to provide a safe and nurturing environment that challenges all students to achieve their highest potential while becoming responsible, productive, enthusiastic lifelong learners and citizens. This is most effectively accomplished when a supportive network involving the home, school, and community is in place. Please be certain to visit for district information-- including the student handbook, PTA calendar, lunch menu, school supply lists, faculty websites, contact information and more. We recommend you visit the website often to keep informed of school events.  

Students (K-8) should arrive to school between 8:00-8:30am.  Homeroom begins for Pre-K-8 students at 8:30am.  Students are marked late to school if they arrive after that time.  After the 8:30am bell rings, students must enter the main office door to receive a late pass.  Dismissal for all students is at 3:00pm. In an effort to reduce the number of students being dismissed between 2:30pm and 3:00pm, please refrain from picking your child up during those times unless there is an emergency.

The Union Beach School District offers a before and aftercare program.  If you require information about either, registration information and forms can be printed from the district website or picked-up in the main office.  You may call 732-264-5402 for more information on the Aftercare Program. We look forward to a rich, educational 2019-2020 school year! Enjoy the rest of your summer!
