Dear Nutley Community,


As the district takes a pause for spring, we wish you a restful and relaxing break spending time with family and friends. If you are traveling, please be safe as we look forward to a return that includes all of the end-of-school year activities and events in traditional Nutley fashion. 


School will reopen on Monday, April 8th. There will also be an almost total solar eclipse on this day, which will be visible in our area, during school dismissal times (2pm - 5pm). While events like solar eclipses are part of our curriculum and will be discussed in school, we ask that parents speak to their children about the eclipse, especially pertaining to safe viewing.  We have included some educational materials that parents can use to discuss the eclipse with their children:

How to Explain April’s Total Solar Eclipse to Kids


Parents may also want to consider protective eyewear for their children on this day. 


As per the 2023-24 published academic calendar, the use of remaining snow days and end-of-year schedule will be confirmed on April 15th via an email to parents and posted on our district website. 


Since this past Monday’s Board meeting, there is no additional information to share regarding district finances, but we are working on a daily basis with county and state officials to identify action steps towards a resolution. As shareable information becomes available, the district commits to communicate. Please know that the district has created a dedicated section on the website called, “Statements” where you can find important district information.


As the warm weather of spring brings a beautiful transformation outside, we are working hard to cultivate our schools to support our students, families, and community.  Please enjoy this well deserved break.



Kent Bania, Superintendent of Schools
