June 1, 2020: Mealtime & Executive Functioning

Dear Families,

We are writing to update you on our plan for our student’s Mealtime accounts and to share some new resources related to time management for students that you may find helpful.

Mealtime

If your child has a balance in his / her Mealtime account, please note that these funds will automatically carryover to the 2020-2021 school year. Access your child’s balance in the Genesis portal under the Summary tab.  Refunds will be issued to those students in the Class of 2020 with no outstanding obligations unless otherwise directed.  If you would prefer to transfer your senior’s balance to a younger sibling’s account, please email Annette Deck at Deck@robbinsville.k12.nj.us and specify the name of the sibling to whom you wish to transfer the balance.  Additionally, if your family is planning to move from Robbinsville over the summer, please email Mrs. Deck to initiate a Mealtime refund.

 Executive Functioning and Helpful Resources

Over the past several years, the Department of Students Services has been working diligently with Special Education and General Education staff to infuse executive function training into their classrooms. Students throughout the district have been working on strengthening skills including organization, planning, think flexibly, prioritizing, and time management.

We know the transition to remote learning has been challenging for our students particularly in areas such as organization, time management, planning, and prioritizing. In order to support families and students in these areas our district Executive Function coaches, in collaboration with our partners at ResearchILD, have put together some quick videos for you to help your students who may be struggling with one of these executive functions. Our first video is focused on time management. You will find the links below to the appropriate grade level of your student. We hope you find these helpful during this time.
