New Progress Report Procedure

Haledon School is going green! In order to reduce the amount of paper we use, report cards and progress reports for grades 3-8 will now be viewed online through the Parent Portal. Students in preschool-grade 2 will continue to receive paper reports distributed as always.

Superintendent Dr. Miguel Hernandez Ed.D

                                             Welcome to the 2016 – 2017
                                                          School Year

Less than a year ago, I began my tenure as Superintendent for the Haledon Public School District.  My goals focused on building relationships with staff, students, and the community, developing a deeper understanding of the school district, and continuing to build on the many strengths of our school.

Due to remarkable people in our community, building positive relationships was thoroughly enjoyable.  We have a committed staff who enjoy serving the students.  Parents support their children, and I am appreciative of their confidence in our school.  It’s been deeply rewarding to work hand in hand with a supportive board that understands the needs of both students and the community.

I am proud to be the Superintendent for the Haledon Public School District and look forward to what lies ahead.
This year, as we do every year, we commit ourselves to providing our students the very best educational experience possible.  We will update you often through our newsletters, social media, and our school notification system.  Please take a moment to visit our district website.
Have a wonderful 2016 – 2017 school year!

October 2016


Hello Haledon Public School Family, 

September is gone and the fall is upon us.  The leaves are starting to change colors and soon there will be piles for the children to jump in.  Our first month of school went quickly.  As they say, time flies when you are having fun.  Our scholars are now used to being in the classroom and are learning so much. 

Hispanic heritage month occurs from September 15th through October 15th each year.  Our scholars learned about Hispanic heritage and created some wonderful assignments and projects.

Our soccer teams are both well into their seasons.  Each team plays two games per week.  The girls’ team has one victory and the boys’ team has two ties.  The schedule is posted on the school website.  Both teams are playing well and ready to jump into some more victories.  The winter sports will be starting soon.  Scholars must pass their first quarter classes in order to be eligible to play a winter sport.  The school doctor will also be providing sports physicals with a signed permission slip.  We are starting a new wrestling team for the boys and girls in grades 6-8.  Basketball will continue to be offered for the girls and boys as well.

The book fair was held by our PTA and it was a success.  The PTA works very hard for HPS.  Every single grade level had a scheduled time to go and buy some books.  This book drive and the spring drive generate a large amount of money for books for HPS.  Last year the PTA helped earn $15,000 worth of books for the school.

Parents will use the parent portal to view all progress reports and report cards. This is the same parent portal that has been used over the past few years. All access codes were sent home with the scholars if they were not picked up during the Back to School Night.  Haledon Public School will not be providing paper versions of grades any longer for grades 3-8. We have placed two computers in our main lobby for parents to use if needed during school hours. An email will be sent out notifying you that you can access the progress report or report card on the parent portal.

This next piece is so important that I will keep including this in my message.  At home, we ask that our scholars read for at least 20 minutes per day and practice solving problems for math fluency.  This will prepare them for Manchester Regional High School and allow them to have a variety of scholarships to different universities that they choose. Wildcat Pride!
