Fort Lee Community Letter 10/4

October 4, 2021

Dear Fort Lee Community:

Fort Lee is the “Place to Be.” That was the phrase I used as the principal of School #3. That phrase alone meant so much to me. It was a place that I called home. I am happy to return home after spending the last nine years as Superintendent in Englewood Cliffs and Englewood. Over the last six days, I have had the opportunity to reunite with a lot of great people and meet a group of new employees, some of which were actually my former students.

The schools look great, the teaching and learning is happening, and most importantly, as I walked through the schools, people were smiling. I firmly believe that a happy place is conducive to learning. We want to build on our success and strive every day to continue the great tradition and bring it to even greater heights.

I look forward to meeting more of the Fort Lee community in the coming weeks and learning the expectations of the community for our schools. Until that time, please know that we are working hard for all of the children to make Fort Lee the place to be!


Robert L. Kravitz
Superintendent of Schools
