Good Afternoon Secaucus Families,

I hope everyone is doing well and bundling up today!

As we enter the month of February, we look forward to Valentine's Day, celebrate Black History Month, and celebrate other events in all of our schools. It is hard to believe we are half-way through the school year and that Spring is almost around the corner. We ask all parents to please be conscious of any sicknesses your child may have, and keep them home if they are contagious so that we may continue to keep our schools safely open and fully functioning. 

The latest FAQ based on the “Parent Communication Form” questions that have been asked for the past two weeks is located just below this letter. If you have any questions to ask, the form is located here: There is also an easy-to-use button on the home page that you can click that will lead you right to the form. No question will be left unanswered!

Have a wonderful weekend and keep warm!

Best Regards, 

Dr. Daniela Riser

Acting Superintendent



Frequently Asked Questions - 2/03/2023


Our Parent Communication Form is still open! If there are any questions you would like to ask the district administration, please visit this link to ask:


Q: Is our district planning on ever having full day Pre-k?


A: Full-day Pre-K is one of our future plans for the district. Unfortunately, in order to offer this option to our families, we need to expand one or more of the current footprints of our current schools. We hope to have full-day Pre-K classes going before September 2027, which is when it will be mandatory by state law.


Q: Why do we have a truancy officer if he is not forcing my child to attend school?


A: Please know that it is a parents responsibility to make their children attend school in the state of NJ. As per state statute, “Parents who don’t make their children go to school may be referred to municipal court for “disorderly” conduct and fined $25 for a first offense and $100 for each offense after that. (N.J. Admin Code § 6A:16-7.6(a)(4)(iv); N.J. Rev. Stat. § 18A:38-31 (2019).)” If your child has a truancy issue, please contact the school directly and they will offer assistance and guidance on how to get your child to school on a regular basis. 


Q: Why am I being forced to go to court if my child is late by a few minutes each day?


A: When a student is marked late for school, that is recorded on their Realtime record. Over time, these 5 or 10 minute daily “lates” add up to hours of missed class time. Multiple, consistent lates will result in warning letters that will be sent to your house. If this persists, a court appearance may be necessary if the principal feels the tardiness is negatively impacting your child’s education.
