Principal's Message

  • August, 2017

     Dear Halloran School Families, 

          I hope you are enjoying the long summer days and creating some wonderful new memories with your families. As we begin the month of August and the summer begins to wind down, we are preparing another exceptional school year ahead to continue the legacy of our Nationally Recognized Blue Ribbon School with challenging and engaging curriculum for all students. Most importantly, I am so delighted to share with you that William F. Halloran School No. 22 will relocate to a brand new building located at 612 Pulaski Street.

         Our current location at School No. 31 has served our school community very well over the last decade. There are so many wonderful memories here, and for that, we are extremely thankful. Our new location will continue to serve our students in a new and innovative state of the art building. It will allow us to build on all the incredible things we have begun and continue to expand on them for the coming years.

         One change that could impact your child is his or her eligibility for bussing. Some of you who currently receive transportation may no longer be eligible due to your proximity to the new school's location at 612 Pulaski Street. Letters will be mailed to your home by our Transportation department soon to inform you in regard to this matter. They can also be reached directly at 908-436-6840.

         The first day back to school for all students is Thursday, September 7, 2017 from 8:15 a.m. through 3:05 p.m. In the soon coming days, you will receive your 2017-2018 Welcome Packet in the mail. Your child's name, grade, and homeroom will be indicated on the label that is affixed on the envelope. This information will be necessary for the first day of school to know where your child reports.

    • Below are the documents that will be included in the Welcome Packet. They are also available on the website under "Announcements" but you will receive the packet shortly. Forms numbers 1-7 must be filled out and returned to school on the first day.
