    Dear Parent/Guardian:


        On August 24, 2017 we will be mailing  your daughter's/son's 2017-2018 North Bergen High School schedule of courses selected by you and your child during the spring 2017 registration period.  If you note a change from the original schedule, it is because your child did not meet course prerequisites or did not attend summer school.


        If you believe that there is an error in this schedule, your daughter/son must report to North Bergen High School  between 9:00 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on  Tuesday, August 29, 2017 for Grades 11 and 12  and Wednesday, August 30, 2017 for Grades 9 and 10. The student must bring a copy of the schedule so that the error may be corrected.


    These are the only errors that will be addressed:


    1.    Incorrect course and/or course level;

    2.    Missing required courses for graduation;

    3.    Missing previously selected course;

    4.    No lunch period;

    5.    Obvious errors on the schedule, such as two classes scheduled for the same period and/or missing a period.  Please note:  Two study halls is not considered an error.


        In order to help make the transition from elementary school to high school easier, we invite parents of incoming freshmen along with the incoming freshmen to a "Parent/Freshman Orientation" meeting on Wednesday, August 30, 2017 at 7:30 P.M. in the high school auditorium.

        The vendors will have uniforms in stock starting at the end of June.  We encourage you to visit their stores at your earliest convenience to buy or order your child’s uniform.  This will avoid any delay in delivery prior to the start of the school year in September.

        Effective Thursday, September 7, 2017, any student in non-compliance with the mandatory school uniform policy will result in in-school detention for the day.  The parent/guardian will be notified by the school office.  If there is a delay due to manufacturing or shipping of the uniform, the student should be in possession of a copy of a receipt of purchase.  Newly enrolled students will be given five school days from the date of registration to be in compliance. After numerous offenses a Saturday Detention will be added to the in-school suspension.  More stringent discipline procedures will address continuous offenses.



                                Very truly yours,


                                Paschal H. Tennaro
