CONGRATULATIONS!!

Congratulations to Senior Jake Kazanowsky for being honored recently by the Maxwell Football Club. The organization picked 93 players from New Jersey schools based on nominations from their coaches. Players were evaluated on football performance, academics and community service. A total of 12 Shore Conference football players have been selected by the Maxwell Football Club as 2020 Mini Max High School Award winners.


Congratulations to Mrs. Carolyn Little, who was recently named the New Jersey Educator of the Year by the Educational Theatre Association. Carolyn was nominated by senior Michael Tresvalles and was honored during the closing ceremony of the New Jersey Thespian Festival.

Insurance Information for Device Distribution

We are in the process of making final preparations for the distribution of district chromebooks to all students, devices that will remain in our students' hands until they graduate from Toms River schools. We are asking for all families to review the student device handbook, which can be accessed both on the district website Parents page at https://www.trschools.com/Parents and on the Parent Portal.


We are offering optional insurance coverage that parents will have an opportunity to waive in lieu of acceptance of a fee schedule that is outlined within the handbook. Please visit the Parent Portal at your earliest convenience to review the district policies and procedures. All parents are required to either waive or accept the optional insurance before a student can retrieve a device from the school. The optional insurance coverage must be paid by January 30th or the family will be considered as having waived the insurance and will be responsible for the fees as outlined in the handbook.


Distribution at High School North will coincide with Underclass Photos on January 25 -28. If a student is currently in possession of a district device, he/she will be asked to return that device before receiving a new one.


All students are encouraged to sign out the device. Once we return to the classroom, students without devices will be at a disadvantage.
