Superintendent's Message

Dr. George Solter - Superintendent

North Bergen School District - June Message

We have reached the last week of school for the 2020 – 2021 school year.  Here are some important points of information as we close out this school year and get ready for the next school year.
First, we will be having all of our graduation ceremonies at Bruins Stadium in Braddock Park.  Our elementary schools will graduate on Wednesday, June 23rd and the High School will graduate on Friday, June 25th.   You will receive information on the graduation time from each school.  Each graduate will be on the field with 2 parents or guardians.  Any additional guest will be seated in the stands.  I congratulate each graduate on this achievement.
Second, our summer school will start on June 30th and end on August 4th.  Grades K to six will be in Kennedy School, Franklin School, or Horace Mann School.  Grades seven to twelve will be at North Bergen High School.  The summer school program will be for enrichment and closing the achievement gap for students who did not demonstrate a satisfactory understanding of the curriculum.  If you need more information please contact your child’s school.
Lastly, we are preparing for the opening of school in September.  Please review the Plan for the Safe return to In-person Education.  It is located on our website.  We are looking forward to a return where we can serve the children of North Bergen. 
Please enjoy the summer vacation and I will be sending more information out as we get closer to September.
To all of the Dads out there have a Happy Father’s Day.

Dr. George J. Solter Jr.
