e-Communications

  • One Call Now Notification System

    The Board of Education subscribes to One Call Now, an automated notification system that allows the district to make telephone calls, send e-mails, or texts to families regarding essential school news. This system is used as the primary avenue of providing information and keeping parents/guardians in the loop. Every high school family will be enrolled into this system automatically.

    You can update your telephone number and email address in our notification messaging system by clciking on the link below:

    E-mail Blast Communications

    I communicate all school information to parents via electronic mail on Wednesday afternoon. I create an address book from the e-mail addresses that you provide when you update your contact information in Realtime. These e-mail message blasts will come from One Call Now. These messages are generated for your information only; please do not reply to messages from this sender, as they are not directed back to me. If you would like to correspond with me, please contact me at jpascale@mahwah.k12.nj.us .

    Occasionally, we are asked to send information via electronic mail to families about community events. In order for you to distinguish between school information and township information, these e-mails will have a subject line called “Community Events” and will be sent to you via e-mail on a Friday afternoon from the Superintendent of Schools, C. Lauren Schoen, Ed.D.

    If you are not receiving electronic mail from Mahwah High School, please contact Pamela Gervasi at pgervasi@mahwah.k12.nj.us . Please provide your child's name, grade level, and a parental e-mail address. If you have more than one student in our school, please indicate that information in your e-mail because the address books are created by grade levels (i.e., grade 9, grade 10, grade 11, and grade 12). If at any time you change your provider or change your e-mail address, kindly update the contact information in the Realtime Parent Portal so that our records are updated.

    Realtime Portal

    The Realtime Portal provides you access to school data such as emergency contact information, homework assignments, academic data, course pages, teacher contact info, attendance, standardized testing results, correspondence, documents, outstanding fines, etc. Each parent has their own portal access code. Each student has their own portal access codes. Do not share your code, as parents have greater access than studnets do in the system.

    Naviance

    This program is used by the guidance department to communicate all guidance information. Each student and parent has an account in which information is sent to you via the e-mail address you registered in the system when you initially signed into the program. Questions regarding Naviance should be directed to the guidance department or Dominick Gliatta, Director of Guidance, at dgliatta@mahwah.k12.nj.us

    High School Web Page  https://www.mahwah.k12.nj.us/hs

    High school information is posted and updated regularly on our school webpage. Please refer to it frequently for all information related to all facets (academic information, athletic and co-curricular activities, guidance services, college admissions information, calendar of events, parent and student resources, and booster club) of our high school program. As we add news to Headlines and Features you will receive notifications from Schoolwires website. In addition, we will post our school newsletter, quarterly, on our website instead of mailing home a copy. You will receive an email from me each time a new newsletter has been posted. Questions regarding website should be directed to our site webmaster- John P. Pascale, Principal, at jpascale@mahwah.k12.nj.us 

    Connect with us on social media

    In an effort to increase communication with parents and students on the “Thunderbird Happenings” at Mahwah High School, I am encouraging you to sign up to use Twitter. Twitter is a website that allows people to communicate through the exchange of quick and brief statements called “Tweets” (which are no longer than 140 characters).

    I have created a Mahwah High School account to disseminate useful information about MHS (i.e. accolades, reminders, dates of school events, etc.) and other valuable resources instantaneously. The best part is, once you have signed up to “Follow” the updates, you will receive these messages instantly to your Twitter page, as well as your cellular telephone (standard text rates apply) if you elect to receive messages on your cellular telephone.

    How do I create Twitter account?

    Signing up is easy. Go to www.twitter.com, create a user profile, and once you are registered perform a search for the school username (Mahwah HS). Then click on my profile and select “Follow.”

    How can I get update texts (tweets) on my cellular telephone?

    To receive updates via text to your cell phone, you must first add your cellular device. Go to the top right of the page and select the down arrow by the picture silhouette. Click settings. On the left side column select “Mobile.” Enter your cellular telephone number. Follow the prompts.

    How do I view the Mahwah High School updates from an Internet site?

    http://twitter.com/@MahwahHS

    If you do not wish to sign up for a Twitter account you can still view the profile and any updates by going to the site listed above by either book marking it or adding it to your favorite places list. Tweets can also be viewed on the high school homepage at https://www.mahwah.k12.nj.us/hs

    Student E-mail Addresses

    All students in grades 9-12 have a Mahwah Township Public School assigned e-mail address, much like colleges and universities provide students with a specific college email address. A student’s email address will remain the same for a student’s entire enrollment in the Mahwah Township Public Schools.  Mahwah High School students can find their assigned e-mail address listed under “Update E-mail Address” in the left side column menu on the Student Realtime Portal. 

    Teachers, advisors, coaches, and the administrative team will communicate pertinent information directed to students, regarding school matters, using students’ school email.  Students and staff are required to use their school email address when corresponding with one another. 

    English Language Arts teachers will be instructing students how to access school email and Office 365 this week.

    Where do students find their assigned e-mail address?

    ·         Log into the Realtime Student Portal

    ·         Click on “Update E-mail Address” to view your email address

    ·         Students are not allowed to change their assigned district email address in Realtime

    Where do students access and create e-mail?

    ·         Go to Mahwah High School web page

    ·         Click on  “Popular Links” (right side)

    ·         Select “Office 365 Portal Login”

    ·         Students will use their network login code to also access Office 365

    ·         Access email from outlook envelope tile

    Finally, access to Office 365 allows each Mahwah Township Public School student to work online in the cloud and to also download Microsoft 2013 to a maximum of five personal devices of their choice at home.
