Mr. Earle would like to remind MHS students to be good neighbors and to dispose of trash in the containers provided around MHS. Be respectful of private properties and to the residents surrounding the school, especially on your way to and from lunch.
We have been contacted by the Montclair Police Department regarding a safety issue concerning our students. There are reports of students walking in the middle of the streets surrounding MHS, especially James Street, during the lunch periods. The police have received numerous complaints from the public about the potential for serious injury to the students as well as the inconvenience and frustration to drivers navigating the area. With the start of school, officers of the Traffic Division will be out in the area concentrating on this issue. They will be giving warnings to the students as well as issuing summonses.
Under the NJ-Motor Vehicle Code Title 39 the following will be issued:
39:4-34-Failure to use sidewalks where provided.
The cost of this infraction is $54.00.There will also be a mandatory court appearance.
We are giving you advanced notice of this upcoming change and ask that you speak with your child and join us in encouraging them to follow the rules to avoid receiving a summons.
No Turns Map for Montclair High School
On Saturday, April 5, twenty-seven students joined us at the New Jersey Junior Classical League State Convention in which Latin students from all over the state participated in various Classical-themed competitions. These students got on a bus at 6:45 am and traveled for 2 hours to compete with their peers not only athletically, but also artistically and academically. Montclair High School students, levels 1-4, took 38 awards in areas such as art, poetry, grammar, and culture as well as athletic events such as the 200 meter run, and of course, the chariot race in which we took first place! Our students have been preparing for this day for months studying, planning, and even building a chariot which they raced (and won)! These students are to be commended for their enthusiasm and dedication to their study of the Classics.
