Bylaws Review

The Hazel Ave PTA bylaws help govern how the PTA runs each year. While majority of the bylaws are set by NJPTA, some customization is allowed to account for local PTA needs. 

These bylaws need to be renewed every three years, and the Hazel Ave PTA bylaws are due for renewal. The bylaws have been updated for 2019, and will be voted on for adoption at the upcoming General PTA session on September 11, 2019.

If you wish to review the bylaws in advance of the meeting, they are available for public review:

There was one change to the prior set of bylaws (as voted for during a prior general session):

  • Quorum changed from 17 to 11

Request to support a Hazel family after a house fire

On the morning of June 20, Zohar, Peter, Tzippy and Baby Ossie woke up to find an electrical fire racing through the top floors of their house. Thankfully everyone made it out safely, and thanks to the quick work of the West Orange Fire Department, the fire was contained. Sadly, the damage was extensive enough that they will need temporary housing for several months while their home is being repaired. While some things were salvageable, nearly all of the baby items were destroyed by smoke and water damage, as well as all of the adult clothes and many more household possessions.

A GoFundMe has been set up to offer monetary support to the family, if you are so inclined.

o “Alyssa’s Law” (A764) was recently signed by Governor Murphy and requires all New Jersey public schools to install silent panic alarms that will alert law enforcement during emergencies such as an active shooter. The New Jersey Schools Development Authority has been tasked with funding and managing the installation of these silent panic alarms in partnership with the New Jersey Department of Education. The purpose of the public survey is to elicit general feedback, comments and concerns from the public on school security and the school security bond.
