From Kathy Christoph, MS Principal


We’ve got kids!

It was wonderful to fling open our school doors on Tuesday and greet the students as they came flocking in. The day was jam-packed with all sorts of orientation activities designed to establish strong relationships and feelings of comfort among the students and with the teachers.

Here are some photos from our first day of school.

Reminder from the School Nurse

Reminder, all students must complete their Health Disclosure, Authorizations & Immunizations Forms along with the State of NJ PreParticipation Physical Evaluation. If your student will be participating in a team sport more than 90 days after the physical exam, the Health Update Questionnaire must be completed before the start of practice. Forms are available at www.d-e.org/start. For more information contact Sara Schulman at 201-227-3163  or email Ms. Schulman at schuls@d-e.org if you have further questions.
