District Announcements

    Dear LPS Community:
    We are pleased to share the Equity Audit Report provided to us from a2z Consulting.  The report includes both qualitative and quantitative data from their equity audit of Livingston Public Schools.  The audit was commissioned last spring in order to gather feedback from an outside third-party regarding the impact of our efforts to foster inclusivity and equity in our district.   The report is attached to this email. 
    Please remember that, in order to draw conclusions from the report, we will need to systematically unpack the information contained in the document  so that we can truly understand what it tells us.  That process will begin very soon.  
    If you are interested in hearing directly from the consultant who oversaw the audit, Dr. Shelly Zion, she will be presenting the results of the audit and specifics of the report at the Board of Education Meeting on December 5, 2023 at 7:00pm in the Heritage Middle School Cafeteria.  There will be an opportunity for the consultant to answer questions from the audience at that time as well.  
    Thank you,
    Matt Block

    BUILDING EXCELLENCE LOGOAs we head into the middle of the 21st Century with record high enrollment, Livingston Public Schools is faced with some important questions. What are the district's future facility needs? What building repairs, improvements and replacements are needed moving forward to provide our students with the best possible education? Livingston Public Schools remains committed to maintaining the legacy of excellence that attracts residents who place a high value on education and who wish to live in a community that exceeds expectations in all areas.

    The district has been pro-actively planning for the future in many ways, including closely monitoring enrollment, commissioning a demographic study, working collaboratively with Township of Livingston officials, and establishing a Long Range Facility Planning Committee.


    Visit the district's Long Range Facility Planning webpage to learn more about the committee, and view related presentations and press releases.

    Dear Harrison Families, 

    I am sure you have all looked at the calendar and have been shocked with how fast the year has gone so far! We are looking at a short week that starts with a 12:00 dismissal on Wednesday and then Thursday and Friday off for celebration of the Thanksgiving Holiday! Please enjoy this precious time with family and friends relaxing. 

    The book fair was amazing! I want to thank the PTA for organizing a fun event with Scholastic to make this happen! It took A LOT of organization on the part of our PTA co-chairs who ran the event and the volunteers who donated their time. The event benefited our kids getting excited about seeing new books while also supporting the school!

    Picture retakes are tomorrow, Monday, November 20th!  Any student who was absent on Picture Day will have their picture taken. If your child is getting a retake, please have them return the original to school.

    The Livingston High School's International Thespian Society is running a fundraising event on Saturday, December 1st that was communicated through the LPS Spotlight this past week. The event will give local elementary students an opportunity to create a short piece of theatre with current LHS students, in addition to performing on the LHS stage! All proceeds go to the theatre program! Essentially, it's an evening of childcare for elementary schoolers, where our high school students lead small groups through theatricalizing a fairytale. There will be a small performance for you when you pick up your kids! See the attached
    link for more information. 


    If you would like to help support decorating the school during the Winter Holidays, please contact Suchita Godhia at harrisoncelebrations@gmail.com. They are looking for parent support in decorating and  providing a small luncheon and would like to know who is interested. Please reach out if you would like to get involved.

    Tomorrow, the PTA meeting will be on Zoom at 7:00 pm! Please see the attached
    Zoom link if you would like to join.
