Hoboken High School Weekly Update
As you all know, Hoboken High School will be closed for the week of March 16th and March 23rd upon the recommendation of the City of Hoboken. This is never what we want to happen, but in the interest of keeping our Hoboken students and families safe, the decision was made.
The faculty and staff at Hoboken High School worked tirelessly over the past week in anticipation of this and have created two weeks of remote learning lessons in English, History, Math, Science, and Physical Education. All of these plans have been made available on our district website or by clicking on the link below.
In addition, all teachers are uploading links to Google Classroom so students will be able to access the assignments there as well. For our families who requested hard copies, they were sent home with your child today. If your child was not in, they were mailed on Saturday, March 14th.
While there is no requirement for students to log on every day, the expectation is that all work will be completed when we return on March 30th.
While our teachers are not physically in the building, they are all available via email during our two week closure. They will be online throughout the day to answer any questions or concerns you may have. I, too, will be available via email or you can reach me at 201-356-3701.
The Student Center staff are also available over the next two weeks. Please take a moment to read a note below from Dr. D'Elia that provides valuable information.
Please eat well, drink fluids, and get plenty of sleep. We want our school community to stay healthy over the next few weeks. Be safe!
The Student Center (SBYSP) staff will be available during our remote learning period. To provide learning support, Mr. Lou Taglieri will be available by email and will be part of many Google classroom groups. He can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those of you who are working with our school-based counseling staff, Ms. Cangeloso, Dr. D’Elia and Ms. Hoo, you can have access to them by way of the following emails and links. Please keep in mind that in the case of a crisis such as threats of suicide, please go to the nearest emergency room or call 911.
Ms. Cangeloso: email@example.com
Dr. D’Elia: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ms. Hoo: email@example.com
In addition, this resource list can be helpful to students when counseling staff is not available. In times of high stress, I recommend that youth use the 2nd Floor helpline which is available for calls or text 1-888-222-2228. This is the information on the back of the student ID cards!
Parents, when your child or family need help with emotional and mental health issues,developmental disabilities, substance abuse, or challenging behaviors, the first step to finding help for youth ages 5-21, CALL PERFORMCARE (available 24/7) 877-652-7624.
This is an unusual time; our resilience will be put to good use, as it has in the past. We look forward to joining our Hoboken school community as we overcome this challenge.
