Roxbury Virtual Backpack

  • virtualbackpack Welcome to the Roxbury Virtual Backpack for the Roxbury Township School District. Here we will feature events and programs of organizations, clubs, and teams throughout our communities that serve to enrich the lives of our students, families, and Roxbury community.
     
    The Roxbury Township Public Schools continues to move in a paperless direction with its home-school communications, launching the Virtual Backpack in 2012 to replace its weekly dispatches of flyers, notices, and other information of interest to parents, guardians, and the community.
     
    Announcements, upcoming events, documents and forms that were previously sent home via backpacks will now be included in the Virtual Backpack. (On occasion, some paper forms, and flyers and other important information, will come home with your student or be sent to you directly via email.)
     
    Contents will be added on an ongoing basis.  
     
    PLEASE NOTE: The Roxbury Township School District neither endorses nor sponsors the organization or activity represented in this material. The display of this material is provided as a community service. The Roxbury Township Board of Education is not responsible for the content or accuracy of these events and/or programs.
     
     
    Virtual Backpack Submissions


    Open-ended or ongoing events/programs will be posted under the Virtual Backpack Flyers section as either a PDF or JPG file. Date-specific events will be posted directly to the calendar.
