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 or visit our social media page at and
