North Bergen School District - April Message

Hello everyone this is Doctor George Solter, Superintendent of the North Bergen School District.  I hope everyone had a restful and enjoyable spring recess.  I would like to give you some important pieces of information as we look to return to in-person education.
First, we will start returning students to the classroom the week of April 26th.  A while ago we asked each family to complete a survey on whether you wanted to have your child remain on virtual instruction or attend in-person education.  At this time, we have the rosters set for each classroom.  We will be following a hybrid schedule where Group A students will be in on Monday and Tuesday, and Group B students will be in on Thursday and Friday.  Every Wednesday we will be learning remotely.  Each day we will be have an early dismissal schedule for in-person education.  Additionally, we will have small group sessions through virtual instruction from 2:25 PM to 3:00PM.  These sessions will be by an invitation from the teacher.
Second, our reopening plans for each school will be on the school webpage.  A message will be sent to you through an automated call, an email, and a text with links to the plan.  The plan includes entering the school, busing, classroom rules, recess, and dismissal. 
Third, we will still be giving out lunches and breakfast during the return to in-person education.  Students who are learning virtual can pick up the lunches and breakfasts on Monday and Thursday.  Students who are in-person will pick up lunch and breakfast as they leave school.
Fourth, we are in the process of planning for a summer learning program.  The summer program will be in-person and will be specific to the students learning gaps.  More information will be given next month on the registration process, locations, and the schedule.
Fifth, we will be having the graduations for all schools outdoors at Bruins Stadium.  We will follow the same process as last year.  A schedule of dates and times as well as the process will be sent to all parents in the near future.
Lastly, I truly appreciate all of your cooperation during these trying times.  Additionally, I would like to thank all of the staff members for their efforts as we transitioned to virtual learning and now transitioning back to in-person education.  If you have any questions please contact your school administrators or email me at  Please stay healthy and follow the CDC guidelines.

Dr. George J. Solter Jr.
