Dear Parents/Guardians,

As you may be aware, there have been several incidents of "swatting" in Bergen County schools this morning. These incidents involve an anonymous call coming into a school from a computer or smart device. The "caller" advises the school that there is a dangerous situation at the school, either a gunman, bomb or something else considered very serious. The schools must respond to the call as a credible threat and go into lockdown. The threat is investigated by law enforcement and schools do not come out of a shelter-in-place or lockdown until completely cleared by emergency management.

The reason for this notification is to let you know that while we do not expect to be in this situation, our schools prepare routinely through drills and student and staff education. Should either of our high schools receive one of these calls, we will respond according to protocol. The school will go into shelter-in-place immediately and local law enforcement will be contacted.

Please understand that with situations of this type, parents and guardians must be aware of the following:

  • Information will be sent out to parents as soon as it is safe to do so
  • School office phones will not be answered
  • Parents/guardians will not be permitted near the school premises
  • School officials and police will do everything possible to maintain the safety and security of our students and staff

Thank you for your support of our high schools.

Best regards,

Beverly MacKay

Superintendent of Schools

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we close out 2015, I would like to wish each of you all best wishes for good health and happiness in the coming year. It is hard to believe that the holiday recess is already upon us and we are four months into the school year. Our freshmen are into the full swing of high school life and most likely feel like it was ages ago that they were in middle school. Many of our seniors have decided upon his/her plans for next year. We are very proud of the outstanding colleges and universities at which many of our students have already been accepted and we continue to discuss future plans for seniors who are still undecided about post secondary life. It is important to remember that there are options for everyone and if students or parents have questions, reach out to us at any time.

I would like to thank all of our parents and families for the support you provide to our schools through involvement in PTSO, APTS, PAA, Music Parents, PAC, Boosters and the many other organizations helping our student programs. Through your attendance at games, meets, matches, concerts, plays, and all of the other student activities, we continue to grow stronger as a school family as together we network with school staff, parents and families. Thank you for your ongoing commitment and support.

It is a privilege to serve this school community. We are fortunate to have amazing teachers, administrators and support staff helping our students grow to recognize the importance of generosity, dedication, commitment, and kindness.

As you celebrate the holiday season, I encourage each of you to take the time to appreciate your family, friends, neighbors and community. Give your children an extra hug this holiday season as you count your blessings and give thanks.

Wishing you a wonderful week with family and friends.

Best regards,

Beverly MacKay

Superintendent of Schools
