North Bergen School District Home

December Message

 
We are now in the month of December and have entered the second marking period.  We have had our open house in September and a parent’s night in November to discuss the classroom expectations and your child’s grades.  Additionally, there is 24/7 access to the parent portal to view your child’s academic status.  Each teacher has a page on the school website in addition to the many notification systems such as Remind or Classroom Dojo.  Remember that together you the parent with the teachers and administrators are here to make each child have the opportunity to be successful.
 
As we approach the winter season, please be mindful that the safety of students and staff is our utmost priority. As a result, there may be times when we must alter school schedules by a closing, delayed opening, or early dismissal. In order to make everyone aware of these schedule changes, we will contact you by an automated call, email and text to the address/cell phone number provided to Realtime, our student information system.  Also, the schedules are on our website for delayed openings and early dismissals.  More often than not the decision will be made the evening before to allow you to make alternate plans for your children during this alternate schedule.
 
One focus this year in the North Bergen School district is improving Social and Emotional Learning or SEL.  We look to go beyond the curriculum and work with each child to understand the world around him or her.  As we enter the holiday season we can take time to learn about the diversity of our community and how traditions are celebrated.  It is a time to seek peace and while we don’t always have to agree with each other we should respect others’ points of view. We need to show students how to view the world around them, and their role within it, and how they can play a major role in their future success.
 
On behalf of the members of the North Bergen Board of Education and the central administration staff, I wish everyone a peaceful, joyous holiday season. As we move to the New Year, we need to continue to work together to meet the challenges to make every child successful.
