Dear SOMSD Middle School Families:
If you have not yet picked up your child’s belongings from their middle school, we are providing a final opportunity for pick up on Thursday, July 23, 2020.
Any family/student who did not retrieve their belongings can pick them up at their respective school. Any unretrieved items after this date will be discarded as the District needs to clear out all areas for summer cleaning. Please see below for middle school, pick-up information:
- MMS: 9 am-12 pm, MMS gym - enter at the parking rear lot on Baker St., across from Maplewood Public Library)
- SOMS: 9 am – 12 pm - Enter into the school driveway in the rear of the building where representatives from the school will take your last name
Please note: Please remember to wear your mask

Dear SOMSD Pre-K Parents/Guardians:
We hope that you and your family are well. Thank you for your patience and understanding as the District finalizes plans for the 2020-2021 school year. In an effort to keep all lines of communication open with our families and community, please see below for an update of the District’s Preschool Education program and registration for the 2020-2021 school year.
While the district is eager to move forward with the placement of more students from our lottery waitlist, we are currently still awaiting final budgetary decisions from the New Jersey Department of Education, in addition to updated guidance from the federal, state and local levels as a result of the impact of Covid-19. We remain hopeful that we will be able to place the more than 100+ students on our waitlist, and the Preschool Department will provide another placement update in late July.
We thank you for your patience during this unprecedented time. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. Be safe and well.
Melody Alegria, Ed.D

2020 – 2021 Kindergarten Supply Kit Orders
Every year, our elementary school PTAs offer families the ability to order school supply kits. The list for supplies comes straight from our teachers, so you won’t have to worry about shopping in the fall!
You can follow the links below for your school. Enter your school code and choose the kindergarten box. Unless noted otherwise, school kits will be shipped to your address.
We’re also including the web address for your school PTAs. We encourage you to check yours and sign up for the regular eblasts. It’s a great way to know what’s going on at school and how to get involved!
It’s good to note that in addition to these school supplies, it is recommended that your child has a backpack or other bag for school (big enough to hold standard folders and books), a reusable water bottle, and a lunchbox or bag if they will be bringing lunch.
