From the Office of the Principal


Hello, Milnes Families!

We are excited to welcome both cohorts back on April 12th after our spring break. That being said, we have very important information to share below. We are welcoming back over 375 students. Please read the letter in the Milnes Memo from the Fair Lawn Police Department when we implemented the drop of and pick up on Van Duren Avenue last year. With many students returning, this is just a gentle reminder to please plan accordingly.

Also, Starting Monday, April 12, during the morning session, the ZOOM link will only be available to students who are 100% remote learners.

  • Your child’s teacher will allow only 100% remote learners to enter the daily Zoom morning session.

  • If your child is staying home due to illness, he/she should spend time recovering. Please do not attempt to log on; the teacher will not allow your child into the Zoom classroom.

  • If your family situation requires your child to quarantine, please contact the nurse's office - 201-794-5550, option 3.

  • In both instances, please enter your child's absence in the Genesis Parent Portal under the "attendance tab." You will be contacted for follow up.

  • Once your child’s teacher receives confirmation from the nurse’s office, he/she will be allowed to access remote learning during his/her quarantine period.

  • As has been the practice, remote and in-person students will log on for the afternoon Zoom sessions.


Stay safe and have a wonderful spring break!


Mrs. Stephanie Primavera

Principal, Milnes School
