Effective immediately, visitors to The Somerset Hills School District may be asked to show a photo ID upon arrival. Additionally, as a reminder, all visitors are required sign in at the main office, state the purpose of the visit, wear a visitor’s badge, sign out, and return the visitor’s badge when leaving.
I appreciate your cooperation as we work together to keep our school community safe.Pete Miller, Superintendent
This summer, the SCESC (Alternative School) will again offer our rising senior students the opportunity to complete their Life Skills/Physical Education 12 requirement over the summer. Rising seniors who take summer Physical Education and Health will be able to add a class or study hall to their list of requests in place of their Physical Education and Health requirement. They will only be permitted to enroll in the additional class if there is a seat available.
Interested students must complete the BHS Option Two Summer PE Application as well as the SCESC Registration Form. When the forms are completed and signed, please bring them to the Guidance Department along with a check made payable to “Somerset County Educational Services Commission” or fill in the credit card information on the SCESC registration form. Our Guidance Department will mail the registration/payment to the Alternative School.
If you have any questions regarding this process, feel free to call the Guidance Department at 908-630-3003.
Your child should have received an appointment for a Portrait sitting from Lifetouch. Please look for that information in the mail. Once you take your yearbook photo with Lifetouch, the company will send the proofs to your home which will include instructions on how to choose your portrait for submission for the yearbook. Once you have completed those steps, your job is done.
If you choose to use an outside photographer, here are some things to remember:
Deadline for submission is NOVEMBER 1, 2013. Any submissions after this date may not be included in the yearbook.
Background color should be a basic color (Blue/gray)
- If the portrait is a “location shot”, please be aware of the items in the background that might look odd in a yearbook layout.
- A “head and shoulders” shot is preferred. Full body pictures detract from the uniformity of the yearbook.
- Dress should be more formal (boys: jacket and tie girls: nice top/blouse/sweater)
- Format for submission should be CD or electronic format (email or flashdrive) and can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Information for creating new PowerSchool (Grades and Attendance) and SchoolFusion (Website) accounts was sent to the homes of all new students in the first week of school. If you have an existing PowerSchool Single Sign-On account or a SchoolFusion account, you can add students to that account rather than creating a new one. Click here for directions to add a student to your existing PowerSchool Single Sign-On account. Click here for directions to add a student to your exisiting SchoolFusion account.
