Dear Students,

To encourage everyone to concentrate on their preparations for quarterlies, the following will be in effect:

  1. Homework will not be assigned from October 29-November 4.
  2. Evaluations (including tests, quizzes) will not be administered except for the scheduled quarterly tests.
  3. Any student who has four or more quarterly tests on one day will have the option to take one of the tests during a make-up session.

Make-up procedures:

  1. Teachers have the option to administer make-up tests on their own.
  2. Make-ups may also be administered in the library classroom on:
    • Tuesday, November 11
    • Wednesday, November 12
    • Thursday, November 13

Teachers selecting this option should bring test to the library at 2:45 and stay with their student to start the test and address questions. Building administration will complete monitoring the tests after 3:15.

3. No student should take a make-up quarterly before the assigned testing period.

Good luck on your tests.

Sincerely,
Dr. Moore

Dear Parents, Guardians and Students:

I write to you because we need your help. Over the last two weekends, we have had three students taken by ambulance from our football games, intoxicated to the point of needing emergency medical attention.Unfortunately, this culture of drinking and partying prior to school events is not just a problem facing our school district, but a problem facing school districts all over the county, state and nation.However, my primary concern is OUR district and the safety of OUR students, parents and community members who attend OUR games and other school events and activities.

Underage student drinking is against the law.Any student found to be under the influence of alcohol or other illegal substances will be subject to both school and legal consequences.While these penalties may hurt, they are minimal when compared to the more serious consequences of alcohol use and abuse by minors.As a community, we must be vigilant about the dangerous behaviors in which our children are taking part.

As a reminder, alcohol consumption on school property by anyone of any age is also against the law (Title 2C:33-16.)Parents and friends may not engage in any type of tailgating or partying on school property, including our parking lots, if there is alcohol being consumed and/or served.Under no circumstance may any individual or community group consume or serve alcohol on school premises.

Effective immediately, our local police departments will be actively enforcing the law to ensure that our campuses are drug and alcohol free.We must all do our part in providing for a healthy and safe environment for our students.Parents and families are encouraged to attend our athletic competitions, enjoy socializing with friends and the community while they model a healthy lifestyle for our students.

For the health and safety of our students, please join with our high school administrators, teachers and coaches to help promote a culture where athletic competitions are about the game and not about the pre-game party.

Your anticipated support is much appreciated.

Best regards,

Beverly MacKay

Superintendent of Schools

Dear Families and Students:

 

The first weeks of school have gone by quickly but I hope everyone has had some time to enjoy the beautiful fall season. Good luck to everyone in completing their work in the first marking period. I would like to remind students to take advantage of the extra-help sessions with their teachers every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in preparation for quarterly tests. In addition, the library is open on these days until 4 PM.

 

Here is a summary of some of the great things happening at our school:

 

A Call to Support Wyckoff 6-Year Old Fighting Leukemia: Monday, November 10, 2-00-8:00PM

Fitness Together Wyckoff, located at 386 Franklin Ave., Suite 102, is hosting a blood drive for 6-year-old Rebecca Salmins, who is battling Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  Every unit of blood that is donated will ensure that Rebecca can do the things in life that we take for granted, like going to school or playing in the snow. See the attached flyer for more details.

Please come show your support! Rebecca's sister, Jasmine Salmins, is a Ramapo sophomore.

 

Honors for FLOW Relay for Life Student Leaders!

The American Cancer Society has selected students Isabel Bayer, Isabella Voglino, and Sophia Voglino to participate in the 2015 Relay for Life Leadership Summit next month. The Summit will serve as the launching point for the 2015 Relay season and participants will share their ideas and experiences to build on past successes in the fight against cancer.

 

Community Service Fair At Ramapo

Fourteen organizations met with Ramapo students during lunch periods on October 10 to discuss their activities and encourage students participate. Everyone is encouraged to find an organization and do their best to lend their support and volunteer.

 

FLOW I and R&S Summit held at RHS

Over 40 representatives from the FLOW-area public schools, grades K-12, met in the Ramapo library with Gary Vermeire, a NJ DOE expert on Intervention and Referral Services procedures and student support services. The full-day workshop was designed to promote teamwork among FLOW educators, keep everyone up to date on procedures, and to share best practices. Claudia Dargento and Dan Sutherland planned the event and will be working this year to continue this important effort.
