A handful of students will move from Raritan High School to Holmdel High School.
A possible error in the Hazlet school district map is causing at least one student to transfer to Holmdel High School just one year before graduation. In a Patch blog entitled "Please Help," Hazlet father Nick Castella looked for an outlet to plead his case. Castella said his son, as well as a handful of other students from Hazlet, are being pushed over the border to Holmdel High School. Castella said his Garden Park Mobile Home Community residence is just inches from the Holmdel-Hazlet town line, and an error in the district map that was recently corrected is pushing his son Chris out of Raritan High School in his junior year. Holmdel Superindent Barbara Duncan said she was informed in late January that a group of Hazlet students actually…
