Ronald L. Meinders Primary Learning Center

Building a Better World, One Student at a Time



    Cold and Flu season is officially here!

    It’s not too late to get vaccinated if you have not done so yet! Just a reminder that Flu vaccinations are required. The State of New Jersey requires that all children 6 months to 59 months of age receive at least one dose of influenza vaccine between September 1 and December 31 each year. Don't delay protecting your child, as the vaccine supply sometimes does run out. If you have gotten your child the flu vaccine, please remember to send in the proof to the nurse’s office.

    Under this mandate, if your child is not vacinated by December 31st, your child may be eligible for exclusion from school for the duration of the flu season, which is until March 31, if they do not have at least one dose of the influenza vaccine.

         To our PLC Parents/Guardians,
     I am very excited to be the Principal of the Ronald L Meinder's Primary Learning Center (PLC).
    This is the start of my 36th year in Stafford Township! I have had many job titles over the years, but being at
    the PLC is by far the most exciting! 
    The staff have fine tuned many Kindergarten experiences over the years, and I am confident that
    your child will grow, flourish and learn!.  
     I look forward to meeting all of you in the next few months.

      • Car Line Drop Off will begin promptly at 8:55 am - 9:05 a.m.
      • The driver of the vehicle must remain in the driver's seat and not attempt to get out of the vehicle.
      • Pull up to the designated markers (ex. Green men/Cones). Do not block cross walk.
      • Your child will be exiting from the back right-hand passenger side of your vehicle with the assistance of Stafford Township School District staff.
      • The staff members will open and shut your vehicle doors. Your vehicle MUST remain stopped.
      • Five/Six vehicles will be unloaded at the same time.
      • If the designated Car Line Drop Off area is full, please wait until you are signaled by a staff member to pull up.
      • After the children are safely unloaded and on the sidewalk, the two/three cars will be signaled by a staff member to SLOWLY pull away. The next five/six cars will be signaled to pull up to the drop off area and the existing procedures will continue until all cars are unloaded.
      • When exiting, continue to follow the road around the loop in front of the McKinley Avenue Elementary School.

      Late (After 9:05):

      You must park in the parking lot, and walk your child into the PLC main office, and buzz in – A staff member will open the door and let your child in.

       Daily Dismissal Procedures:

      • Parent(s)/Guardian(s) are reminded to park in the parking lot, not in front of the school
      • Students being picked up will report to designated area.
      • Parent(s)/Guardian(s) will-not be admitted into the building
      • You will be expected to come to the main entrance door, one by one, show your photo ID, and a staff member will dismiss your child to you.
      • If you have not indicated to us that your child is to be picked up every day, you MUST send a note to your child’s teacher the morning of the day you would like to pick your child up from school.
      • Parent(s)/Guardian(s) must notify the school by 2:45 p.m. if they are going to pick up their child, rather than take the bus home.
      • For safety purposes, if you are picking up your child at dismissal time, please anticipate approximately a ten to fifteen-minute delay. To assist in this process, we suggest students not be picked up between 3:00 p.m. and 3:35 p.m.
