HAWTHORNE, NJ - On Saturday, Hawthorne Superintendent Richard Spirito released a statement regarding the high school track, following the reopening of New Jersey parks, including Goffle Brook Park which is owned and maintained by Passaic County.

"Beginning on Saturday, all NJ parks will reopen with the expectation that those in the park will continue to social distance," Spirito said.  "Based on the reopening of the park, the Hawthorne BOE’s Buildings and Grounds committee will meet on Tuesday, May 5th, to discuss if and when the HHS track will reopen for community use. Please remember that should the Board and Administration agree to reopen the track, we will also expect everyone to follow social distancing protocols. Thank you."

The Hawthorne High School track closed on Monday, April 6, and all state and county parks were closed by Governor Phil Murphy's executive order the following day.
