The New Year brings about an opportunity to start new in 2016. Here in the Matawan-Aberdeen Regional School District, our staff has worked diligently to focus on improving communications with the release of our new and improved website! We are very excited to release our new website. We hope that you enjoy your first glimpse at our new site.
You will notice the site is brighter, more appealing, and easier to navigate. Over the next few weeks we will be incorporating our content and placing it in a very logical sequence that will make it even more user friendly. We will finalize the process with training to help staff, students, parents, and the community to navigate more freely through the website. Please be patient with us, as we have some great changes in store for you!
