Dear Parents/Guardians

At last evening's Board meeting, Mr. Travis Smith was unanimously approved and welcomed to our District as the next Principal of Ramapo High School. Mr. Smith comes to us from Arthur. L. Johnson High School in Clark NJ, where he served as Assistant Principal for five years. He brings a wealth of experience including building management, school safety and security, best practices in teaching and evaluation, Intervention and Referral Services, cross curricular lesson design and High School Athletics. Prior to that, Travis spent eight years as an English teacher, football coach and track coach at North Plainfield High School.

I would like to extend a tremendous thanks to the Principal Search Committee, Dan Sutherland, Joe Collins, Ron Anello, Joe DelBuono, Jonathan Samarro, Staci Anson, Jen Perry, Greg Hudak, and Lisa Brefach (APTS President). This committee spent many long hours together reviewing resumes, interviewing candidates and discussing the strengths of all applicants. The time dedicated to this important process at this busy time of year is very much appreciated.

We all wish the best of luck to Travis Smith as he joins the Ramapo family.

Best regards,

Beverly MacKay

Superintendent of Schools

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.

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.

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
