Please see the following memos regarding our district's assessments:
- The first memo should be read by all families with students in the district. It outlines important dates on the district's assessment calendar.
- The second memo is specific to families with high school students who must satisfy a testing requirement for graduation.
Pursuant to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection’s (NJDEP) Administrative Requirements for the Remediation of Contaminated Sites (N.J.A.C. 7:26C-1.7), a notification sign is required to be posted as public notification and outreach that an environmental investigation is currently in progress.
Former heating oil underground storage tanks (USTs) were located at the Clarendon and Huber schools and previous soil investigations conducted at the schools indicated that impacted historic fill material may have been used to backfill the former UST excavations during the closure and removal of the USTs. Environmental investigations have been conducted at both schools to evaluate soil conditions as a result of the impacted historic fill material; therefore, signs have been posted at the Clarendon and Huber schools to notify the public of these ongoing remedial investigations in compliance with the NJDEP requirements. Engineered caps (i.e. asphalt) have been installed at the schools to eliminate potential contact with the historic fill material (i.e. soil beneath the asphalt) used to backfill the former UST excavations. The engineered caps serve as remedial actions and act as protective measures to ensure there is no exposure to the historic fill material.
If you have any questions regarding the environmental investigations at either school, please contact Carrie Berry, the Licensed Site Remediation Professional (LSRP) retained for the investigations at both properties, at 732-380-1700 ext. 1414.

In December of 2013 a referendum was passed by the voters of the Town of Secaucus to renovate and expand the Secaucus High School/Middle School building.
On June 22, 2015 construction will finally begin. Construction hours will be Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the possibility of some Saturdays.
To construct the additions to the buildings, we must excavate and install foundations. We want to advise the residents in the surrounding area that this work is quite noisy. Unfortunately, this is unavoidable and we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Thank you for your understanding.
