Chartwells Pizza Update

From Jessica Walker, Director of Chartwells

We had issues with Domino's delivering the quantity of pizzas we needed to the schools on time. I discovered Domino's was under new management and having staffing issues. It became clear after 3 weeks of late deliveries and missed deliveries, they could not meet our needs for the district.

After discussing with the BA we decided to change the pizza to a product supplied by Schwan's food group, that we currently use in our Middle schools. We bake the pizzas at the high schools and our driver delivers the fresh baked pizza to the schools.

The product meets the USDA guidelines and is well received by the students. The slices are a little larger than the Domino's slice.

This will be noted on the online menu. Also, we will test out a few different varieties of pizza to see which the kids like best. Next week we will offer French bread pizza, alsoa USDA approved product.

Kindergarten Registration & Enrollment/ Orientation Process for 2018-2019

Dear Parents/Guardians:

We are excited to announce that Kindergarten registration for the 2018-2019 school year will begin January 8th. Kindergarten is an exciting and important year for students and their parents. We are anxious to meet your child and welcome him/her to school.

The registration process, which consists of two steps, is as follows:

Step 1: Registration/Residency Verification through the Community School

The initial step of the process requires you to go online to and pre-register.

Please follow the directions @ to determine what additional forms and documents are required during registration.

Registration takes place at the Community School located at the corner of Burbank Street and Norma Avenue (behind Fair Lawn High School) and is by appointment only.

  • Appointments are Monday-Thursday (8:45am-11:45am &

1:45pm-3:45pm) during your neighborhood school’s assigned week (see below).

  • All students subject to the district’s “soft border” policy who register prior to

March 30th will be notified of the child’s school placement by the end of May.

  • Appointments should take no longer than 15 minutes provided all requested documents are presented and completed.

Please note missed appointments will have to be rescheduled.

  • If you don’t have access to a computer or printer, there are several kiosks available for your use at the Community School prior to your appointment.
