Office Policy and Procedures

For more of this and other School Information, click here to see the Triangle School Handbook.

Visitors: All visitors must immediately report to the school office. Failure to do so may result in violation of the NJC 2C: 18-3 trespassing law. We have been tested on our adherence to this procedure by the local police department. Please assist us with this important requirement.

Visitor Stickers: Located on the counter, they must be worn while visiting school property. These may be obtained from the office after signing in. Parents may not visit the classroom unannounced for any reason. Our goal is to have as few interruptions to the school day as possible.

Early Dismissal or Pick Up: For a doctor's appointment, please send in a note to the classroom teacher the day of the event so they can assure your child is prepared with homework/assignments and ready to leave when requested. Children will be called down when parents arrive.

Late/Tardy Arrivals: When arriving to school after the 7:50 am bell, students must be accompanied by a parent to the office for a LATE PASS. We will obtain lunch information at this time.

After School Program: Please remember to advise the after-school program if your child will not be attending for any reason, including class trips, illnesses, etc.

Emergency Information: If your phone numbers (work, home, cell), contacts, and / or emergency procedures change, please remember to notify the office as soon as possible.

Emergency/Early Dismissal: If there is an emergency/early dismissal, it is imperative your child understands and knows your family's emergency plan and where he / she needs to go at dismissal. If weather is a factor, we want to be sure all our children arrive at their destinations safely. Please be sure the information provided on the first day of school is kept current.

Lost and Found: Please check for missing belongings!  Please remember to LABEL your children's backpack, lunch boxes, and, particularly, OUTER WEAR, so we can easily return items to their owners. During warm days, children tend to start out with their jackets on and discard them outside during lunch or recess.

Lunch: We are no longer lending money to children who forget their lunch money. Please make sure your child has emergency funds on their POS account in the event of an emergency. For information on the POS account, please refer to the Triangle Lunch Policy page.
Other Notes:  Please remember to keep your child's teacher and the main office informed of changes to your child's daily schedule by writing a note. Please include in the note the child's name, teacher, and the reason for the change to schedule or departure/pick up changes. All notes, after being reviewed by the classroom teacher, are sent to the office and are held until the end of the day.  If your child attends the After School Program, Catholic Charities must also be kept informed of any changes to their schedule, either in writing or by calling them directly. Thank you for this assistance.
