Good Afternoon Secaucus Families,

I hope everyone is doing well and looking forward to the upcoming break!

As we enter the month of March, we look forward to planning for the 2023-2024 school year. We have adopted the district calendar for the 2023-2024 school year, which can be accessed here or on the website under “District”-> “Calendar”. As always, any school or district events will be displayed on the Google calendars located here, or under “Upcoming Events” toward the bottom of the home page. 

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, or would just like to leave a comment for the administration, 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 enjoy the time off!

Best Regards, 


Dr. Daniela Riser

Acting Superintendent

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: The libraries and media center are under utilized in all of the schools. How can the district address this to benefit our students who should be encouraged to visit the libraries/media center to take books out?


A: Although space is limited at each elementary school, our Media Specialists are working with the grade level instructors to set up “library” schedules, where classes can come to the libraries to take out books and read in small groups. At the middle/high school, we are working on repopulating our media center with newer books, while funding classroom libraries for our ELA instructors. 


Q: Can we as a district strengthen the Science curriculum at the elementary level so that when students enter middle school, they are well prepared to navigate the curriculum.


A: Our science teachers in the district utilize resources that are online based and consistently updated to reflect the latest information. Our teachers are meeting and exceeding the respective standards that are required of us as per the state of NJ. Parents that would like more information can visit:
