Central Administration Building

December 4, 2019

Dear Teaneck Community,

We are making great progress on our renovations of the old “Eugene Field” building to become our district’s early childhood center – scheduled to open in September 2020.  Aside from temporarily relocating our Central Office to the Glenpointe in Teaneck, I would like to provide you with an update on where we are as of today, and also share some information regarding the process to officially name the new early childhood facility.

First, regarding the Eugene Field renovations:
• Demolition started on October 1 and was completed on October 11;
• Asbestos Abatement started on October 14 and is scheduled to be completed by December 5;
• Our architect and engineer are finalizing the construction drawings for the renovations; 
• NJ Department of Education approval on the project drawings is expected by the middle of December;
• Bid pick-up December 9 with bid award schedule for mid-January 2020; and
• All renovation work is scheduled to be completed by mid-July 2020.
Next, we are pleased to inform you that the Teaneck Board of Education will be accepting nominations for the official naming of this school building.  Per Board Policy 7250, “School buildings or separate school facilities shall be named only by formal action of the Board of Education.  In naming schools and facilities, the Board shall strive to honor the traditions and high ideals of this district and the community it serves.”  The full policy and naming criteria can be found on the district website:     https://www.straussesmay.com/seportal/Public/DistrictPolicy.aspx?policyid=7250&search=school+names&id=7da42070a501409683bdce41bdcbaaff.  Nomination forms are due by January 3, 2020.

Our Board of Education will have a specific committee designated to accept and review nominations.

If you are interested in submitting a name that meets the policy criteria, please go to the following link: https://forms.gle/xaWuhekTgdsWa4jZ7

Throughout this school year, I will continue to keep you updated on our renovation progress. If you have any questions about the renovations, please contact our Business Office at 201-833-5527. If you have any questions about the naming of the renovated school building, please contact my office at 201-833-5510.

Sincerely,
