As we begin the 2019-2020 school year, I wanted to take the opportunity to send a reminder about our facilities access protocols. We implemented these procedures for Nutley High School, JHWMS, and events in the Oval during the 2018-2019 school year. These procedures will be implemented for all Open Houses at all district schools in September 2019.
Last month, Governor Phil Murphy signed a law that requires all schools to publicly post the Department of Children and Families’ Child Abuse Hotline number – also called the State Central Registry (SCR) – so that students as well as teachers and administrators are made aware that it exists and can easily call, if needed.
- As part of the Nutley Public Schools' ongoing district-wide, long-term technology plan, all sixth grade students were issued a Hewlett Packard 14" G4 Chromebook starting in January 2017. Starting in September of 2018, all students in grades six through twelve were issued their own Chromebooks
All K-12 students attending the Nutley Public Schools during the 2019-2020 school year will have the opportunity to select books that they are interested in and motivated to read during the summer. By providing students with an element of choice, we believe that the students will be more engaged and committed to read this summer.
The New Jersey Department of Education has released school and district HIB grades as per the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights (ABR) Act. The Nutley Public Schools has posted its Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act grades for the 2017-2018 school year to the district's homepage, the HIB webpage, and to each individual school's webpage. These grades were determined by a district self-assessment released by the New Jersey Department of Education Commissioner. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Joseph Cappello, the Anti-Bullying Coordinator, at 973-661-8989.
Dear Nutley Parents, Staff and Community Members,
Tonight, we will watch as our Nutley High School Class of 2019 graduates walk out onto the Oval for the last time as our students. When they next return, it will be as alumni.
We are so proud of their individual and class accomplishments; academically, athletically, artistically and as members of the community. In addition to these achievements, the Nutley Public School district has much to celebrate this year as well.
