HOPATCONG, NJ - The Hopatcong school district is uniting with the Municipal Alliance to galvanize their message about the dangers of drug and substance abuse. The Municipal Alliance provides a variety of community programs in conjunction with the Center For Prevention.

The first meeting of the Hopatcong Municipal Alliance took place Monday, Sept. 16 at the Hopatcong Senior Center and was well-attended by the parents, town council members, police officers, residents and school members.

Mayor Sylvia Petillo and Superintendent Cynthia Randina, along with Board President Clifford Lundin, Board Members Dolores Krowl, Judith Antonelli, Director of Guidance, Gina Cinotti, Student Assistance Coordinator (SAC) Jacqueline Tillson and Officer Robert Haffner, have all taken on a role in this mission. 

Randina reinstated a part-time SAC for the high school to support prevention and counseling students at-risk and is mandating new prevention activities, assemblies, guest speakers, and other relevant programs to become part of the educational experience at Hopatcong.  

For more information, or to schedule an interview with Cynthia Randina, Superintendent of Schools, call JoAnne Murray at (973) 398-8801 or email Murray at jmmurray@hopatcongschools.org.
