Early school registration encouraged All new borough residents whose children will be attending Midland Park’s public schools are urged to make arrangements in the near future to register their children. Accurate student counts are important for proper planning for the year ahead. Registration packets for attendance in the Midland Park Public Schools can be picked up at any school building or at the board of education offices at 31 Highland Avenue. Call ahead to make sure a staff member will be available to secure a packet for you. To register a child, a parent/guardian needs to bring an original birth certificate for the child or children; an immunization record signed by a licensed physician; a physical examination dated within the last 365 days; proof of custody if the student is not living with both parents or guardian papers, if applicable; a notarized form if student is living with a friend or relative other than the parent; a current transcript, and withdrawal grades if the student is transferring from another school system. Also required at registration is proof of residency, which may include a deed or lease agreement, and one of the following documents: a current utility bill, driver’s license, or bank statement. Attending to this registration process in the near future will help a child have a smoother start when the doors open to receive the students on Sept. 2. (continued from page 3) The connection will replace the borough-owned pumping sub-station at the corner of Glen and Erie avenues, about 200 feet down the road into Ridgewood. The sewage is now force pumped from there to the NWBUA treatment plant in Waldwick. “The clock is ticking. The probability of a break goes up as time goes on, so it makes sense to abandon the station and pump down to Ridgewood,” Dugan said. “The existing station is a big headache; it’s a liability, and it is a great inconvenience to residents,” she added. Dugan explained that the sub-station requires constant monitoring and monthly servicing, all expensive undertakings to complicated mechanical equipment. Whenever there is a breakdown, emergency services are also high. The station was rebuilt more than a decade ago, and has a life expectancy of about 15 years. Another problem, Dugan said, is that the aging pipes that carry the flow under pressure sometimes spring leaks, creating havoc for residents. Dugan said each time there is a leak it costs the borough about $10,000 to locate the problem and fix it, and residents are further inconvenienced if the road needs to be dug up. The sanitary sewer system was installed in the 1970s. The borough will pay Ridgewood a yearly maintenance fee in addition to the connection fee for each of the houses. The village recently upgraded its system and can take the additional flow from Midland Park. Interest-free loan But STILL can’t lose that Tummy or Cellulite?
