Dear Members of the Class of 2016, Parents, and Guardians:

The end of the academic year is quickly approaching. For seniors and their families, this marks an important milestone in their lives. It is a time for celebration and to honor the individual and collective achievements of the Class of 2016. Enclosed is information to help you and your family prepare for the end of the year. Please take the time to review the material below with care.

Participation in the graduation ceremony is a privilege. Please respect the fact that this is a proud and important moment for your families and friends who have come to honor you and your class. We expect that all students who choose to participate will respect the dignity of the event. We ask parents to support our efforts by not hosting, or condoning attendance at, parties before or after graduation at which alcohol or other illegal substances might be consumed. It is critical that all parents/guardians and students complete the Graduation Contract and return it to the main office before Tuesday, June 14th.

Thank you in advance for your cooperation and support. We have had a great year, due in large part to the leadership and good citizenship displayed by the senior class. I am looking forward to honoring your achievements as graduates and celebrating the end of your high school careers.

Sincerely,

Louis Moore

Principal

Dear Ramapo and Indian Hills High School Parents/Guardians:

On May 25 and May 26, 2016 all students at Ramapo and Indian Hills High Schools who are enrolled in a first-year Biology course are required by the New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE) to take the New Jersey Biology Competency Test (NJBCT). All high schools in New Jersey are required to have a 95% student participation rate for students enrolled in these courses. Therefore, the make-up dates for the Biology assessments will be on June 1 and 2, 2016. The participation rate is part of a high school's determination of Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) under the NCLB (No Child Left Behind) federal law. Therefore, it is most important that our students provide their best effort on this assessment.

Students enrolled in a first year Biology course (all levels) and UP SAT Biology H are required to take the test on May 25 and 26. All students involved in testing should be in school at the regular starting time each day of testing and report directly to their assigned rooms for the test administrations. Room assignments will be posted prior to May 25 at both high schools.

Those students who are not involved in the testing will have a delayed arrival to school for each of the test administration days (May 25 and 26). See the testing day bell schedule below:

Transportation Information:

A second run of bus routes will take place on each day of testing for delayed arrival students who are normally bused to school. Those students should be at their bus stops at the following times:

May 25 – 2 hours and 45 minutes after the regular bus pick up time

May 26 – 2 hours and 30 minutes after the regular bus pick up time

Body Image & the Media: When Did We Learn to Hate Our Bodies?

The Franklin Lakes Public Library has an important program coming up on Wednesday, May 18 at 7 p.m. Nancy B. Graham, LCSW is the Professional Relations Representative for The Renfrew Center in Ridgewood, New Jersey, will be speaking about body image issues, eating disorders, resources for recovery and how to choose a treatment center. Since its founding in 1985, The Renfrew Center has been a pioneer in eating disorder treatment and has been providing patients and their families with tools they need to succeed in recovery and in life. We believe this will be a particularly useful program for teens and their parents. The program is free and residents from all communities.

Parents/Guardians,

On Wednesday April 27th and Thursday April 28th Ramapo High School will be conducting their mandatory bus emergency evacuation drills in the front of the school from 7:00 AM – 7:30 AM. As such, we expect some impact on the morning traffic flow and student drop off area. Please plan accordingly and allow extra travel time on these two days.

As a general rule, parents and drivers need to practice courtesy, responsibility and patience. Please be mindful of pedestrians.

Ways to ease congestion:

  • Allow the buses access to the drop-off/pick-up lane first
  • Keep the traffic moving as much as possible
  • Please drive as far forward as you can in the drop off / pick up zone
  • Pull up close, but at a safe distance to the car in front of you
  • Do not cut in line or take short cuts
  • Do not leave your car in the drop off lane while you go into the school. If you need to go into the school, please park in a parking space
  • If you have to wait in a no parking zone, stay to the right, close to the yellow curb, and do not leave your car unattended
  • Please be patient

Thank you – Principal Dr. Louis Moore

Dear Parent/Guardian:

Your son's/daughter's course selections for the 2016-2017 school year are now available to view through the Genesis Parent Portal (click on the Scheduling tab). Please take notice, health is not reflected in these requests but will be implemented into all final schedules. Each student has met with their counselor to discuss teacher course recommendations and choose electives.

Please review them carefully. It is essential that the course selection process be considered with great care.

  • The order in which the subjects are placed does not have any relation to the period of the day that the course will be scheduled.

Every attempt will be made to include all selections into next year's schedule. Alternate courses will be used if an original request cannot be accommodated, however, electives or alternate courses are not guaranteed.

From these requests your child's schedule will be created and made available to you at a later date.
