We are all concerned and a bit nervous about the Corona COVID-19 virus. Just as importantly, we wonder how long we have to be "socially distant." I am available online via my email: sstern@northbergen.k12.nj.us
If I do not answer right away, I may be working on a project with another student, or conducting a class or meeting, or training a teacher on an online platform. We will work together within a quick amount of time. I am on call online from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday through Friday. For those of you who are already STEM Academy students or STEM Academy incoming freshmen, I help out on many hours outside of that 9-3 window.
For Students in College Prep,
The May SAT has been postponed for now. Information and FAQs can be found here: https://pages.collegeboard.org/natural-disasters
The April 4th ACT has been postponed, but there is an alert on the front page of the ACT site: http://www.act.org
This means the May tests will be very crowded. Please make sure that if you are able, register for the May exam as soon as you are able. 
This also may be a good time to gather your certificates and write a list of your accomplishments for your brag sheets.
Sophomores and Freshmen,
You have an abundant amount of time at home to go through the classroom posts and look at the summer programs listed. If summer programs are being considered for closing, the sites listed will have information on their front pages. Summer is not long off and opportunities will go fast! Let me know if you need a STEM Academy digital transcript.
