Superintendent - Mark Saalfield


Greetings to you all! The 2020-2021 school year will begin my 13th year at the helm of the Blairstown Elementary School District as Superintendent. It will also begin my 49th year as an educator having been a Special Education teacher, coach and Director of Athletics, High School Vice-Principal for Special Education students, Dean of Students, Elementary Vice-Principal, and Elementary Principal. As you can see, I have experience in several different areas of education and have loved them all. I currently reside in Frelinghuysen Township with my wife, five children, two dogs and two cats, so you may imagine I have a full schedule all year. I am blessed to be part of a superior administrative staff, with a hard working faculty and support personnel, a knowledgeable and active Board of Education and an involved and informed school community who all work together to provide the best possible educational learning environment. Please feel free to call the school with any questions or concerns you may have throughout the year. Working together, we can succeed for your children!
