A memorial for Robbinsville school superintendent Dr. Steven Mayer is scheduled for Friday, as students return to class on Thursday for the first time since Mayer was struck and killed by a car driven by a 17-year-old student.

The memorial for the 52-year-old father of three, which will be public, takes place at 2 p.m. Friday at Princeton Alliance Church in Plainsboro, according to his obituary. The church website said parking there is limited; attendees are asked to carpool and arrive early. Overflow parking will be available at the Plainsboro Village Shopping Plaza. Robbinsville schools were already scheduled to be closed for Passover on Friday.

A video stream will be provided at Robbinsville High School, Queenship of Mary Catholic Church in Princeton and St. David the King in Princeton Junction. The church's website will also stream the service.

According to his obituary, Mayer began his education career teaching in Howell before being named assistant principal of Applegarth Middle School in Monroe Township and then principal at James Madison Intermediate School in Edison. He moved on to become principal at Thomas Grover Middle School in West Windsor-Plainsboro, and then served as that district's assistant superintendent before coming to Robbinsville.

Mayer was fatally struck early Tuesday while jogging along Route 526, near his home and Robbinsville High School. Mercer County Prosecutor's Office spokeswoman Casey DeBlasio told NJ Advance Media that the 17-year-old female high school student whose car hit Mayer drove to nearby Pond Road Middle School and called police to report that she thought she might have hit someone. Police have not disclosed the girl's identity and no charges have yet been filed.

Robbinsville Mayor David Fried told the news organization he had spoken to the girl's family.

"This is not a story of a good guy and a victim. This is a tragedy for both families," Fried said.
