Principal's Message

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!


Due to the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we are opening virtually. Every effort has been made to ensure that students have access to effective and meaningful instruction. Our teachers have attended multiple training sessions to support them with virtual instruction. Devices have been distributed to students, and textbooks and other materials are being scheduled at this moment for distribution as well. 


Although in person instruction is not taking place at this moment, connections may be created between students and their teachers via Google meet during live instructional sessions. Information on individual classrooms will be found on each teacher’s webpage which can be accessed through the district website under the Robert Fulton tab. Your child’s assigned homeroom teacher is found on the parent portal information page. 

Please know that preparations are in place for when students return to the building to maintain everyone safe and healthy.


Our office staff, administration staff, and instructional staff are all available for any questions or concerns that you may have. Please feel free to call the school at 201-295-2900 or contact individual staff members by email using their first initial, last name and the following:@northbergen.k12.nj.us. For example if you need to contact me via email use: tgarcia@northbergen.k12.nj.us


Although this year will present many challenges for our students, our teachers, and our parents, I am certain that with the dedication that has been shown by our entire staff and the support of the parents, our students will have a successful year, although recognizably a very different year. Communication will be key during these trying times as well as mutual support to maintain crucial home school connections. 


On behalf of the entire Robert Fulton staff, we wish all our students a successful and productive school year. Our hope is that we will see all our students very soon as we resume in-person instruction later this year. 


Good luck to all! 


Mrs. Garcia

Mr. Tetro
