March 13 Early Dismissal & Community Update

This evening, the Bergen County Executive held a press conference to inform the public that effective 3 p.m. Friday, March 13, all Bergen County Schools will be closed for two weeks at a minimum. The school closure includes all after-school activities and events.

Therefore, tomorrow, Friday, March 13, we will be implementing our early dismissal schedule for students so that they may collect any final resources needed during our remote instructional period. Staff will remain until the end of the school day in order to finalize their instructional plans. 

The early dismissal schedule for tomorrow is as follows:

  • Pre-School will be dismissed at 12:05 p.m.
  • Grades K-5 will be dismissed at 12:45 p.m.
  • Middle School will be dismissed at 12:36 p.m.
  • All Jr./Sr. High School students will be dismissed at 12:16 p.m.
  • NOTE: Lunch will not be served in any building

AFTERCARE:Champions will stay open for 1 hour after dismissal at each school to allow additional time for families to pick up. No Before/Aftercare services will be available while schools are closed.

TECHNOLOGY: For families who expressed a need for a district-supplied Chromebook via the Technology Needs Survey, devices and chargers will be sent home with students tomorrow. 

FREE / REDUCED MEALS: Students who qualify for free/reduced breakfast/lunch will be contacted by the district to coordinate the continuation of this service

More information with be forthcoming with additional updates. In the meantime, reach out to your child's teacher or the school administration if you have any questions about the remote instruction plans.
