Elementary Student News Letters


Paterson Public Schools has partnered with Hackensack Meridian School of Medicine’s Community Health Project to promote healthy habits among elementary school students through a series of newsletters. The first issues were released earlier this month, one for students in grades two through five and another for students in six through eight. The newsletters are created by medical students who compile information about healthy food choices, the importance of getting exercise and other topics to encourage children’s healthy choices.

Student Immunization Records Requirement

New Jersey state law requires all public school students to have complete immunization records on file at their school.
A child who has an incomplete record of immunizations may not be permitted to attend public school. Also, all sixth grade students require two additional immunizations.
If you have received notification that your child’s immunization records are incomplete, or if your child will enter the sixth grade in September, please contact your family doctor or clinic so your child may receive the needed immunizations.
If you do not have a family doctor or clinic, please contact the Paterson Board of Health at 973-321-1277 or the Paterson Community Health Center at 973-278-2600. They are ready to assist families needing vaccinations for their children. Flyer with details

Please review this important presentation from the district's Director of Instructional Technology, Jose Correa, to help you understand what your children are doing online and to learn how to make smart choices to keep them safe when using the internet.
