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.

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.
