Welcome Greeting From Our Superintendent

Greetings East Orange School District Parents/Guardians and Caretakers,

Welcome to the 2020–2021 school year! The East Orange School District is looking forward to welcoming your child back to school remotely on September 8, 2020. As parents/guardians and caregivers, I commend you for your patience and resilience as we navigate these challenging times as a school district. As penned in my letter to you a few weeks ago, on August 12, 2020, Governor Murphy issued Executive Order No. 175 (EO 175) permitting school districts to provide remote-only instruction in the fall. Towards that end, the East Orange School District will open the September 2020 school year fully remote as part of phase one. Students will begin in-person instruction, pending an assessment of the pandemic conditions at that time, during phase two which will begin on November 16, 2020. It is important to note that this plan may be subject to change due to changing pandemic landscape.

This year will require a great deal of flexibility and adaptability as we navigate our new normal by overcoming odds and achieving success. To that end, your role as parent/guardian/caregiver is critical as it lays the groundwork and foundation for improving outcomes for your child. 

Please take a moment to read Superintendent AbdulSaleem R. Hasan's complete welcome letter.
