Re-opening of School Updates From Michael Romagnino, Superintendent of Schools

June 2020

Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,

Governor Murphy and the NJ Dept of Education have released their 104-page booklet, “The Road Back” which outlines guidelines and requirements for a limited but safe return to school in September 2020.

In the coming weeks, I will be working with my administrative team and a district-wide committee of staff, administrators, board members, parents and students to develop a plan for a September opening.   Our plan, while adhering to all state guidelines, will be specific to the instructional, social and emotional needs of our students and will include all safety measures that will protect our staff and students.

The NJ Department of Ed states that all school plans, “will allow for school buildings to open in some capacity for in-person instruction and operations in September.”  As a result, parents should keep in mind that child care may be necessary if we adopt staggered scheduling which may impact starting, ending and/or in-school times.

Once our plan is approved by the Cliffside Park Board of Education and the NJ Department of Ed it will be shared with parents, staff, students and community members.

Please continue to visit our website and/or download the Cliffside Park School District APP for notifications and updates regarding September’s opening.

Stay safe,

Sincerely,

Michael J. Romagnino

Superintendent of Schools
