Franklin Lakes Curfew Ordinance
The Borough of Franklin Lakes has adopted a "Curfew Ordinance", which will be in effect each year on October 30th and October 31st. The purpose of the ordinance is to assist the Franklin Lakes Police Department in minimizing the amount of residential property damage sustained by borough residents, and businesses, during this time of the year.
The Franklin Lakes Police Department is asking for your assistance by ensuring that your children abide by the provisions of the ordinance, as follows:

A. No juvenile, under the age of 18 years, shall be present on any public street or in any public place between the hours of 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM on October 30th and October 31st unless accompanied by the juvenile's parent or guardian, or unless engaged in, or traveling to or from, an activity or occupation which the laws of the State of New Jersey authorize a juvenile to perform.

B. No parent or guardian shall allow an unaccompanied juvenile to be on any public street or in any public place between the hours of 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM on October 30th and October 31st.

C. Notwithstanding the preceding provisions, a juvenile, during the stated curfew hours may engage in errands involving medical emergencies, attend extracurricular school activities, or participate in other cultural, educational, and social events, which are sponsored by a religious or community-based organization.

All students in Grade 10 will be required to take the PSAT as part of the District testing program. There will be no cost for 10th grade students.

For 11th graders and interested 9th graders, registration will take place online beginning Thursday, September 10th. The cost of the test is $15. This registration will take a few minutes and can be completed from any computer with internet access. Our District is excited to offer families the convenience of paying exam fees online at the time of registration. Please be sure to have a debit or credit card available before beginning registration. Paying online is a great way to make sure that payment has been made while avoiding mailing payment.

Indian Hills High School recommends that students take the PSAT/NMSQT in order to receive feed back about strengths and weaknesses, enter the competition for National Merit Scholar scholarships (11th graders) and to help prepare for the SAT.

The school schedule for test day will be made available during the first week of October.
