Dear Parents, Guardians, and community Members

It is my pleasure to welcome our new students and their families to the Bergen County Special Services School District, and say hello again to our returning students and families. Our administration, faculty, and staff members are looking forward to providing an exciting and productive school year for all our students, from pre-kindergarten through high school and beyond.

I urge families to avail themselves of the many services and learning opportunities the district affords. Workshops and information sessions sponsored by our CAPE Resource Center assist parents/guardians as they navigate the system of services for people with disabilities throughout their lifespan. Parents/guardians are encouraged to become involved with active Parent/Teacher organizations and to participate in school events and celebrations that are held throughout the school year. Family involvement in a child’s academic endeavors and school activities is an invaluable contribution to every student’s success.

I look forward to visiting our programs during this school year to observe students actively engaged in their educational and vocational pursuits.
