Major Changes Coming to the Brick School District
School may be out for summer, but there are some big changes on way for the Brick district next year.
Brick Township is jam packed. We all know the struggles of navigating 70, Chambers Bridge, Cedar Bridge, 88, among others.
It's a great town that, despite it's huge population already, is continuing to grow.
We recently told you about the construction of new townhouses, apartments and retail stores in Brick on Chambersbridge Road.
Well, Brick School's Superintendent Walter Uszenski has announced that with the expected addition of new families to the housing and hundreds of new students, the district is turning The Primary Learning Center into a K-5 school.
The current facility which was previously pre-K will be renamed the Warren H. Wolf Elementary School effective June 30. As you may know, Mr. Wolf is the legendary former football coach of Brick Twp. HS and is very deserving of this honor.
So what does this mean for you and your family? According to Superintendent Uszenski, not much for current students.
Starting in September, the school will house kindergartners from the area, he said.
All other students, who live in other residential areas, will continue to attend their present home school. No child will be moved from their current school, Uszenski said. We have a survey for Birchwood Park residents and if there is a demand to add other grades we will, but as of now we are going to start with kindergarten.
