Dear Parent/Guardian:

It is with great pride that I write this letter of introduction as the newly appointed Principal of School 6 and Middle School. I would like to extend a warm welcome to a new school year! I want you all to know that I am energized and committed to ensuring that the School 6 and Middle School staff provide each child with a motivating and challenging academic program within a safe and supportive learning environment. Mrs. Kathleen Tortora, our elementary school secretary and Mrs. Ruthann Rodriguez, our middle school secretary, are available at 201-313-2360 should you have any

Parents are important members of our school team. During the course of the year, it is my hope we will work together to provide the students of School 6 and Middle School with a solid foundation to be successful in school and beyond. The valuable support we receive from our parents and the Cliffside Park community will ensure a successful school experience for our students. Our Parent Teacher Association (P.T.A.) has played a vital role in providing our children with special programs, class trips and school supplies throughout the year. Please support their efforts.

Listed below is the paperwork that will be distributed to students during the first week of school:
 Emergency Form - must be completed and returned to school as soon as possible. In order to be contacted by "Swift Reach", an automated telephone relay system, we must have all current telephone numbers. Continue to update your information whenever necessary. If you change your residency at any time during the school year please notify the main office so we are current with your information.
 Student Handbook (included inside the student planner) – please read and discuss the contents with your child. A separate signature page that includes picture-taking permission must be signed and returned to school.
 Acceptable Use Policy for computer access (included inside the student planner) – please read and discuss the contents with your child. A separate signature page must be returned to school.
 Lunch Eligibility Form – Return to school
 School Insurance - do not return to school. Insurance is purchased directly through the company

As a reminder, please mark your calendar and keep in mind the following dates as we prepare for the new school year:
 7th Grade Orientation (students only) = September 2nd at 12pm
 Kindergarten Orientation = Tuesday, September 2nd at 2pm
 Thursday, September 4th = Students return (middle school students report at 9am).

 K-6 - Back to School Night = Thursday, September 18th 7pm

I look forward to meeting you.

Kurt Ceresnak
