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.

Delayed Opening (Thursday, February 21, 2019)

Due to the icy condition of walkways and school parking lots, the West Orange Public Schools will operate on a delayed opening schedule today, Thursday, February 21, 2019.

From the Principal: Important Message from Mr. Kochis

PDF Letter to Families

February 13, 2019

Hazel Ave Families,

Over the past three years, it has been an honor and privilege to be the principal of Hazel Avenue School. After careful thought and consideration, I have accepted a new position as Superintendent of Stillwater Township School as of July 1, 2019. I will work closely with Mrs. de Mendez to make sure the transition to a new administrator is a smooth one, with minimal impact on the students and families in the Hazel Community.

It has been a pleasure to work with dedicated faculty and staff, supportive families, amazing PTA, and wonderful students at Hazel Ave School. As I move on to my new position, I will take with me all the experiences and memories from my time at Hazel Ave. If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out.
