We invite artists, families and support coordinators to join us for a Virtual Open House to introduce MAM’s new Access Program: Private Studio Instruction. We strive for full inclusion in our Yard School of Art classes, but also understand that there are times when students may be interested in private lessons. Taught by trained educators and designed to meet the unique goals of each student, the classes are accessible to all audiences including people with physical disabilities, intellectual and learning disabilities, sight loss or hearing loss, chronic illness, memory loss, or mental illness. MAM is an approved Goods and Services provider through the New Jersey Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD). Closed captioning will be provided.
The Bloomfield Board of Education broadcast their Board Meeting last night, (Oct. 13, 2020.) Superintendent Goncalves and Assistant Superintendent Joseph Fleres gave very comprehensive details on the current Plans to reopen Schools for In-Person Classes on Nov.30, 2020 and on maintaining Virtual Classes for Parents who choose to do so; including schedules, safety measures and Staffing.
They fielded numerous questions from Bloomfield Parents as did the B.O.E, Members. Thus far, over 2,000 have viewed this video. This allowed for many more Bloomfielders to “attend” the Meeting and they took time to answer many more questions than could have been answered under regular conditions.
