Dear Parents and School Community Members,

As we move into the routines of a new school year, I want to let you know our plans for Back-to-School Night. Again this year, for everyone's safety, our program will be virtual, which will allow you to watch teacher-recorded video presentations at your convenience, beginning September 28. Families will receive a message from their child’s principal with more information.

I also want to bring to your attention that our annual testing schedule is now on our website. The schedule includes dates for the required state tests. You may recall that the annual NJSLA was canceled in 2020 and 2021, because of the pandemic. It will return this spring, and in the meantime, the state has developed an abbreviated version of the standards-based test in the form of the Start Strong assessments, which will be administered in October. You also will see the iReady diagnostic tests, which we implemented last year, listed on the schedule. The principals will send additional information about the upcoming assessments.  

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Very truly yours,

George P. Alexis
Superintendent
