Principal's Message

  • Ms. Joseph Message from Our Principal

    Dear Parents/Guardians:

    Believe it or not, we are more than halfway through the 2020 – 2021 school year! I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your support as we continue our remote instruction. We hope to see your students for in-person instruction beginning Monday, April 12, 2021.

    If you have not already done so, please sign up for the FOCUS Parent Portal. The portal allows you to go into the system in real-time and review your student’s attendance, discipline record, and grades. It is also our method of sending home report cards, mid-quarter notices, and attendance notices.

    As a reminder, per the New Jersey Department of Education, the East Orange School District is mandated to monitor student attendance. Students are required to attend school virtually every day of the week. They must mark themselves present via FOCUS each weekday, participate in virtual Google Meet classes as per their student schedules on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. They must also participate in asynchronous tasks on Wednesdays.

    Also, if you have not met with your child’s teacher since our parent conference meetings in November, please schedule a conference if you have any questions regarding his/her school progress.

    If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, please feel free to contact me via email, ClassDojo, or Schoology.

    Thank you for your cooperation and support!


    Ms. Joseph, Principal
