Also view our NEW Virtual Learning Link for information about our Distance Learning Plan and available resources as we move forward.
With the current events at the Capitol unfolding please know that our school counselors are available to provide support to your children, if needed and requested. These events may contribute to a sense of uncertainty and stress so please know that we are here to help. If you would like to have your child receive this support, please reach out directly to your building Principal.
We hope that you and your families enjoyed a happy and healthy winter break. This is a reminder that the District’s in-person/Hybrid Learning model will resume in our schools on Monday, January 4. Beginning on Monday, Cohort A will attend school on Monday and Tuesday; Cohort B will attend on Wednesday through Friday. Regular menu and meal service for students will resume at the High School Cafeteria for Virtual students and at each individual building for in-person/Hybrid students.
Parents are reminded to complete the Screening Form before sending their children to school. The screening form has been changed to meet new and more rigorous health and safety requirements established by the CDC and the Bergen County Health Department. Please make sure that all questions are reviewed carefully and answered accurately. If you have any additional questions, please contact your child’s school Administration.
As you know, conditions for our re-opening plan on January 4 can change at a moment’s notice, so that we ask for your patience and understanding, and your preparedness should we need to revert to an all-virtual model. The district is closely following guidelines established by the NJ Department of Education including requiring everyone to wear a face covering, promoting social distancing to the maximum extent possible, utilizing a daily pre-screening form, and disinfecting buildings each and every night. In the event that there is ever a staff shortage due to conditions related to medical restrictions and other personnel issues, the district will consider combining classes and re-assigning staff if possible. This may impact the scheduling of classes and how instruction may be delivered. While this situation is not ideal, the district remains committed to providing both its in person and virtual only students with the best instructional program possible under these most trying conditions.
We look forward to welcoming our students and staff back for the new year. Stay safe, wear a face covering, social distance when possible, and wash your hands frequently.
"High Performing" District
I am pleased to inform the educational community that on June 14, 2019 we received notification from the Assistant Commissioner, Robert Bumpus, indicating that the Dumont School District has been designated as "High Performing" for the fourth consecutive three year cycle. Dumont scored well above the 80% minimum passing level on the Quality Single Accounting Continuum (QSAC) review in each of the following areas: Instruction and Programs, Fiscal Management, Operations and Personnel, and Governance. Another proud moment for Dumont.

DHS Incident Update
On Wednesday, November 25, 2020, an incident occurred during “virtual” classroom instruction. Because the incident involved District teachers, the Dumont School District is legally prohibited from making any public or private comment about the incident and the District’s investigation thereof. Rest assured that this matter is being thoroughly investigated and the District will take all appropriate actions once that investigation has been completed. The views expressed by Dumont staff during this incident were inappropriate and in no way constitute the sentiments of the Dumont Board of Education, Administration, staff or students.
While this is of course a regrettable and hurtful situation, the Dumont School District is and will continue to respond appropriately to the situation and will take appropriate disciplinary and preventive actions once its investigation into the incident has been concluded.
As this investigation moves forward, the District is in the process of putting schedule and instructional changes in place, which have been impacted by this unacceptable and inexcusable incident. The District is also looking into partnering with outside organizations to provide the necessary targeted training for students and staff.
