School opening day letter

On behalf of the staff at the North Hanover Township School District, I am happy to welcome you to the 2021-22 school year!  Within the next few weeks, we will open our school doors to welcome you and your children to an exciting new school year.  We look forward to a positive and productive year together!

Below is information about some school opening logistics.


HOMEROOM ASSIGNMENTS:

Homeroom assignments will be available in the Parent Portal on Wednesday, September 1, 2021 at 3:00 p.m.

SCHOOL HANDBOOK:    

Each school has a handbook of important information that parents must review prior to the opening of school. These handbooks answer important questions about school hours, contact information, student drop off and pick up and other day to day practices specific to the school your child attends. The links to those handbooks are here.

C.B. Lamb School Handbook

Endeavour School Handbook

U.E.S. Handbook

Once you have reviewed the handbook(s), you should complete the form in the parent portal that affirms you have done so.  The next section outlines when you will receive parent portal access.

PARENT PORTAL:

If you are new to the district, you will receive an email on Wednesday, September 1st prior to 3:00 p.m. that contains Parent Portal login information and instructions.  Returning families will be able to log in to the Parent Portal at 3:00 p.m. on 9/1 with your existing credentials.  If you do not remember your password, please use the "Forgot My Password" link on the login page.  If you have any technical difficulties with the Parent Portal, please email Lisa Quackenboss at lquackenboss@nhanover.com.

There are several electronic forms that we would like you to complete in the Parent Portal.  Some of the forms are required; therefore, you will not have full portal access until the required forms are submitted.

BUS PASSES:

Our district does not mail out paper bus passes. Your child’s busing information will be visible in the parent portal when it opens on September 1st.   Please contact Danielle Wood at dwood@nhanover.com, if you have any questions regarding student transportation.
If you plan to transport your child daily, instead of using bus transportation, please complete this form ASAP.

MEET YOUR TEACHER:

All parents and students are invited to “Meet Your Teacher” on Friday, September 3, 2021. CB Lamb and Endeavour's event will run from 8:30 am- 11:30 am, and UES's event will run from 9:30 am - 11:30 am. In order to allow for better physical distancing in our buildings, we ask that families with last names beginning with A-G attend from 8:30 a.m. – 9:30 a.m., H-O attend from 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m., and P-Z attend from 10:30  a.m. - 11:30 a.m.  If you have children in multiple buildings and cannot honor those times, we understand.  Our teachers and staff look forward to greeting you!

FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL:

Tuesday, September 7, 2021 is the first day of school for all students.  Lunch will be served in all schools.  Click here to navigate to our food menus web page where the September 2021 menus will be posted prior to the start of school.

Health and safety protocols related to COVID19 will be communicated separately, and closer to the time that school starts. The NJDOH guidance for schools is not expected until later in August. 

We look forward to seeing you on Meet Your Teacher Day and throughout the school year. Please enjoy the remaining days of the summer, as we eagerly anticipate another fulfilling year of meaningful learning experiences for our students.


Sincerely,

Helen Payne
