• Dear Charles Olbon School Families,

    Welcome back to our returning students and to our newest members of the CO Family! I am excited to begin the 2021-2022 school year! Our Charles Olbon School teachers have been working hard to prepare warm and inviting classrooms for your children! September here we come! 

    I would like to welcome our youngest community members to the newly expanded Preschool program at Charles Olbon School. We have added 5 addtional classroom designed to support our 3 year old and 4 year old learners. We are very excited to have the Preschool Puppies join the CO Chipmunks! 

    Our first day of school will be on Tuesday, September 7, 2021. Please be advised of the following procedures for Charles Olbon School:

    PRESCHOOL- 8:40AM-2:40PM:

    Our Preschool students will arrive at 8:40AM and will enter the building through the lower preschool doors marked Exit 3. Preschool parents must park their cars on side streets and walk their children to the doors. Preschool will dismiss at 2:40PM through the same doors marked Exit 3. Again, preschool parents must park their cars on side streets and walk to pick up their children. 

    KINDERGARTEN, GRADE 1, and GRADE 2- 8:52AM-3:28PM:

    Kindergarten students will arrive at 8:52AM and enter the building through the upper doors marked Exit 11. Kindergarten parents can park their cars on side streets and walk their children to the doors, or they can utilize the car line. If parents use the car line, they do not have to exit the car. There will be staff members outside directing students to the correct doors at arrival. Kindergarten will dismiss at 3:28PM through the same doors they entered marked exit 11. Parents can park and walk to the doors to pick up their kindergarten students, or utilize the car line for dismissal.

    First and Second grade students will arrive at 8:52AM and enter the building through the main office doors marked Exit 1. Parents are strongly encouraged to utilize the car line for both arrival and dismissal.  First and second grade will dismiss at 3:28PM. First grade students will exit through the main door marked Exit 1, and second grade will exit the gym doors marked Exit 3.

    We are aware of the possibility of traffic at Charles Olbon School during both arrival and dismissal. We ask for your patience and thank you in advance as we continue to navigate this situation.  

    Please be sure to check Charles Olbon School’s web page to stay up-to-date on current information throughout the school year. Since we also communicate information via text and email blasts through our Parent Portal, it is very important that you update your contact information on the portal so that we have access to your most current information. You can also access information such as your child’s report cards, grades, schedules, homeroom assignment, and absences in the portal as well.

    As always, if you have any questions or concerns, you can reach the main office at 973-317-7732.

    I look forward to a wonderful school year together!

    Sincerely,

    Mrs. Barreto
