Principal's Message

Good evening, East Rutherford Middle School students and families. 


I hope you had a wonderful Easter holiday and that you were able to enjoy time with your family.  Our faculty and staff are very excited to begin Plan A on Monday, April 12th. All students that are scheduled to have face-to-face instruction four days a week will report to school tomorrow. Wednesday will remain a Remote Day for all ERMS students. If you ride a bus please have your bus health form completed each morning and make sure you are looking for the bus at least 10 to 15 minutes before the scheduled bus time since all bus routes have been adjusted for Plan A. Our bus routes this week may be early or later due to more students riding. In Plan A students will continue to follow the 3 Ws: wear a mask covering the nose and mouth, wait six feet apart, and wash hands regularly. When we follow the 3 Ws we become ERMS strong! 


This week we will kick off our ERMS End of Year Sprit Weeks. 

Monday, April 12th- America Day & Black Out Day- America Day (wear red, white, and blue)/Black Out Day (wear all black). Tuesday, April 13th- C Day Character Day (dress like your favorite book, television, video game, or movie character). Thursday, April 15th- D Day Disney Day (dress in anything Disney-themed). Friday, April 16th- E Day East Rutherford Colors (wear red and black)

Don’t forget to check the ERMS 2020-2021 student Canvas page for important information. Mrs. Cox will send out daily messages regarding sports and reminders.

I hope everyone gets a good night’s sleep, and we will begin our final six weeks tomorrow morning. Have a great evening! 

Dr. Walker
