Hoboken Public School District
Superintendent's Daily Message (Day 1) - March 16, 2020
I hope that you and your families are doing well and following the guidelines set forth by the the City of Hoboken's Office of Emergency Management and Department of Health.
Today at 2:00 p.m. Governor Murphy required all schools, colleges and universities must close and will remain closed indefinitely. As a result, we are continuing to develop remote learning lessons. We are doing so, two weeks at a time. We will absolutely be ready to roll out an extended remote learning plan when the one that is in place, expires. The next set of remote learning plans will rely more heavily on work that will be pushed and linked into Google Classroom. Directions will be provided for all families that are not familiar with Google Classroom. We will also be focusing on including additional work to challenge students.
At the end of last week, I had to submit our remote learning plan to the County Office. I did so and it was accepted. Over the weekend, I had to submit a presentation of our Preparedness Plan to the County Office. I included it below for your reference.
Today, I received a number of emails from families regarding Stories with Staff. Many of our students seemed to really enjoy them. If you would like to access our YouTube Channel, please do the following:

I have posted some additional stories, as well as a "Rainbow Meditation for Inner Strength" from from Ms. Carris Ellis. Remember, it's critical to have your children get up and move around. There are many exercises that can be done at home. Who knows, maybe even daily yoga sessions may be coming your way!
I encourage you to take time to review The Herald. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook too. I will be sending regular updates and resources for all families.
Stay well. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at your convenience.
'Everything starts with us
Everything starts with us
all we have to do is trust
make the right decisions and plan
it can happen if you think it can.
when it’s time to move, don’t hesitate
try to be early, we don’t make them wait
be honest, don’t try to over inflate
by sticking together, our lives will be great.
and we have the option to choose'
And we have the option to choose
by listening to others we’re bound to lose
life is about using common sense
we don’t have to run and jump high fence.
Only takes teamwork to get the win
you’re one of the best that ever been
if not helping, tell ‘em to get on bus
cause everything starts with us.

Johns Hopkins CTY
The Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth online courses will remain active throughout the entirety of the district’s remote learning plan for grades 2 - 8. Therefore, there will still be 3 - 5 hours of required coursework to complete per week in order to meet the course ending deadlines for both the three-month and six-month course options.
You will continue to receive email communications on assignment completion, feedback and grades from your child’s Johns Hopkins CTY online course instructor. If you have any questions at all, he or she will remain the first point of contact in regards to CTY curriculum and coursework completion.
Ms. Tara Donnelly will continue to monitor all Johns Hopkins CTY emails at the Middle School level. If students or parents have questions, please reach out to her at Tara.Donnelly@hoboken.k12.nj.us. For all Grades 2 through 5 questions, please contact your building principal or Assistant Superintendent, Ms. Rodriguez-Gomez at email@example.com.
