North Bergen School District - February Message

 
I hope everyone is doing well with the large amount of snow we received this past week.  We were able to have two snow days to dig out and hopefully you were able to enjoy some outside activities.
 
We are now at the end of the second marking period and we will be producing report cards to demonstrate your child’s academic progress.  Please remember that you must log onto the Realtime parent portal to view the report card.  If you are having problems accessing the Realtime parent portal, call your child’s school for assistance.  Also, do not hesitate to call or email to speak with your child’s teacher on any concerns you may have based on the report card.  It is important that we are working together to ensure each child has the opportunity to demonstrate success. 
 
Additionally, February is designated as Black History Month.  We will be working in many areas to highlight achievements of African American inventors, athletes, statesmen and stateswomen, educators, scientist, astronauts, and innovators.  These people include, Thurgood Marshall, Jesse Owens, Frederick Douglas, Rosa Parks, Jackie Robinson, W.E.B. Du Bois, Mae Jemison, Booker T. Washington, and Harriet Tubman to name a few. We will read stories about individuals and historical literature, as well as create projects and reports for a deeper understanding of the many accomplishments.
 
Lastly, we are working on our road back to in-person education.  The plan created last month had to be altered because of the COVID vaccine delay.  Our preliminary plan is to return to Phase 2 with teachers teaching from the room and limited students in-person sometime in mid to late March.  We are also looking to move to Phase 3 after the Spring vacation which is the first week in April.  We are analyzing the data from our benchmark assessments and we will be developing programs for academic interventions.  The interventions will have after school activities, Saturday sessions, and a summer program.  More information on these programs will be released at a later date.
As always please stay safe and follow all of the CDC guidelines.  Thank you to the staff for all you are doing.
 

Dr. George J. Solter Jr.
