Season's Greetings

On behalf of all of us here at Toms River High School North, I want to wish all of our families a healthy and happy holiday season. While 2020 has indeed been a difficult year for all of us, I remain proud of our students and school community for their efforts in transitioning to a new normal while finding ways to maintain our regular activities wherever possible. Please enjoy this time with your families as we look forward to the new year.


Happy Holidays!


See you all in 2021!

1 to 1 Chromebook Program

The Toms River school district is excited to implement a 1-to-1 Chromebook program for all students in grades 6-12 to take to and from school each day. The Chromebook will extend and enhance education both at school and home. Each student will receive a Dell 3100 Chromebook along with an always-on carrying case for protection. The district will be offering an optional $30 insurance policy which will cover up to 2 accidental damage incidents per year. Parents will be able to opt-in to the insurance via the Parent Portal and make payments online. Additional details on distribution plans, care of the devices and our insurance offering will be made available soon.
