**** Principal’s Read Alouds ****

Read Aloud

Our school is currently on hiatus due to the Coronavirus. In order to try to make the best of a bad situation the HPS administrative team will be uploading Read-Aloud recording so that our Wildcats can hear an adult read to them every day during the break. This is our first time every trying this so we hope that the video quality will improve once we get the hang of this! Go Wildcats!

**** HPS Contingency Protocols ****

Dear HPS Parents and Guardians,

This is Mr. Wacha, the Principal of the Haledon Public School. As I am sure you have heard, we will be closing our building for students starting on Monday, March 16th until further notice.

This is undoubtedly sad news, however it is believed that this decision is ultimately in the best interest of the safety of our students and their families. With that said, we are certainly empathetic to the child care impact that this will have on all of our HPS families. There are a few important points that I need to bring to your attention regarding our contingency protocols during this time.

Please Click to see entire text of Mr. Wacha's message.

*** School Closing Due to Health Concerns of Covid-19 ***

March 13, 2020

To All Parents/Guardians and Students:

The Haledon Public School will be closed beginning March 16, 2020 and will be closed until further notice.

The closure is due to the health concerns of the CORONAVIRUS (Covid – 19). The
school district is committed to providing a “thorough and efficient” education for our students. Therefore, we will provide continuity of services remotely by transitioning to online and remote instruction.

Teachers will provide instruction during this time. Students will be expected to log onto google classroom and complete assigned work. Teachers will be available during regularly scheduled school hours to assist students.

All co-curricular and athletic activities are postponed until further notice including aftercare.

Starting Monday, March 16, 2020, the Board of Education will provide access to “Grab and Go” breakfast and lunch packages. District employees will facilitate distribution of breakfast bags from 9:00 am – 10:00 am and lunch bags from 12:00 -1:00 pm in the small gym.

Furthermore, we will be in constant contact with all families via social media, robo-call, and email updating you on the district status moving forward.
If you have any questions or concerns please contact your child’s guidance counselor, case manager, or administrator during regular school hours.

Sincerely,

Miguel Hernandez, Ed.D.
Superintendent

Dr. Hernandez
Dear Parents, Students, Staff and Community Members,
 
Welcome to the 2019 – 2020 school year.  Here’s hoping that everyone enjoyed a relaxing summer break with family and friends.  I am excited about the start of this school year!  We have wonderful opportunities ahead to make a difference in the lives of children.  Achieving student success continues to be our goal which will take a commitment to continuous learning on the part of talented motivated staff, informed parents and communities that are involved and values education.  I am committed to making sure our students receive the best possible education at HPS. 
 
We’ve had a busy summer, getting ready for students to return.  We have painted classrooms, and we have replaced furniture and re-polished floors along with our routine summer projects to ensure a smooth start to the school year. 
 
The Haledon Public School is a district that strives for excellence and realizes that we all need to work together to provide the best education possible.  I encourage all parents to stay involved in your child’s education.  When your child succeeds, we all succeed because of the contributions young minds can make to our society and the communities in which we live. 
 
I thank you for your continued support of the school district. For more information concerning all HPS activities and programs, please check the district website at www.haledon.org or visit our social media page at and www.facebook.com/HaledonPublic
