• Dear Duzine and Lenape Families,


    We hope you are all safe and healthy. The children and families of Duzine and Lenape have been in our thoughts and hearts over the past two weeks. We miss you all terribly.


    This is an unprecedented time and we wanted to reach out to you with some information about the availability of counseling services. 


    Beginning this week, we will be reaching out via phone or email to those students who receive mandated counseling which is included on their IEP or 504 plan. We are hoping to stay in weekly contact. When we talk, we can set up a day and time for our phone calls/video chats/emails so we can be consistent and predictable—having a routine which is so important during this time.


    Please note that many of the Lenape students who have been receiving counseling will be contacted by MaryGrace Renalla who is replacing Meri Lederer as the counselor until the end of this academic year.  Meri has taken on the position of interim Coordinator of Student Support Services. 


    As school social workers, psychologists and counselors, we are here for all students. We are available to provide support to any child from Duzine and Lenape. Please do not hesitate to contact one of us if you have a concern about your child. 


    Also check out our webpages for information and resources. 


    Although we are apart right now, we are here for all of you! Again, please get in touch if you need support, have a question or want to connect. 


    Wishing you good health and happiness,
