Hello Woodbridge Families, I hope this finds you well. We encountered a problem with Central Registration and we are aware that some students have not had their registrations confirmed. We are working throughout this holiday weekend to resolve this issue and parents will receive an email once registration has been confirmed. If you have already submitted the necessary information, you do not have to do anything further. If we need information, we will contact you. On behalf of our district, I apologize for the frustration this has caused. Please know we will be working every day from now to the first day of school to get the situation fixed. Thank you.
Due to the excessive rain and flooding from the tropical storm, all Woodbridge Township School District schools and offices are closed on 9/2/21. All scheduled activities are canceled. Please stay safe.
