Important back to school information 9/12/22

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I would like to welcome all the returning students and new students to the start of a new year at Holmstead School.  As always, we are here to provide a safe, supportive, individualized education for your child and appreciate working together with you in this endeavor.  You can access your child’s progress at any time through the Realtime Parent Portal but feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns as well.

The following are some important announcements:

Start Strong:  The Start Strong NJ State assessment will be taking place in all NJ schools this fall.  You can access further information about this test at the following: 

We will be administering the test starting on September 20st.

Back to School Night:  For the first time since 2019 we will be having an in-person back to school night at Holmstead.  It will take place on Thursday, September 22 at 5:30pm.  The purpose of back-to-school night is to provide you with detailed information about the program and your child’s individual classes.  You will be following your child’s schedule throughout the evening.  This is not a time to discuss individual concerns that you might have about your child or their progress.  Please contact the office to set up a meeting for such concerns.

We look forward to a successful school year.


Stephen Kuwent, Psy.D.
