“We get asked all the time, ‘Are you closed?’ No, we’re just the opposite. This is when all the work gets done for September 1st in anticipation of the kids coming back. It’s a very active place. If you need anything over the summer, we’re here. Give a call,” said Thomas Eldridge, Lawrence Township Public Schools Business Administrator/Board Secretary.
