District Announcements
A Message from Interim Superintendent Bruce Watson
Dear Glen Rock Public School families,
Following is the text of a letter that I sent out earlier this afternoon to the parents of our middle and high school students. It concerns an incident that occurred yesterday, Oct. 13, which impacted the school day for those students. I feel the particulars should be shared with all of you, the greater GRPS community.

Interim Superintendent of Schools

Dear Glen Rock Middle School and High School Parents,

Iím reaching out to you with regard to the situation on the GRMS/HS campus yesterday, Oct. 13.
Late yesterday morning, the high school administration became aware of a potential threat against the school building, stemming from a dispute between a Glen Rock student and an individual from another community.

Glen Rock Police were contacted and upon their arrival, the district was directed to issue an immediate on-site evacuation of the campus. Staff and students followed our normal protocol and evacuated to their assigned places on the perimeter of the campus.

As the police began their investigation, they determined that the threat of a bomb was unsubstantiated and therefore directed that the staff and students return to the building. Simultaneously, an interview with the Glen Rock student was arranged in the high school principalís office. Again under the direction of the police, the campus was placed in a Hold-in-Place while the interview was being conducted.

Because of the prolonged interview, it was decided that the students would remain in their classrooms until dismissal. It was also felt that in deference to the comfort level of the students, middle school students would be released at the high school dismissal time of 2:54 p.m., rather than hold them until 3:07 p.m. In addition, all afterschool clubs and on-site athletics were cancelled.

I am pleased to report that as of this morning, all school activities on campus have resumed. The police are continuing their investigation of the situation. I will share any further developments should that be necessary.
Bruce Watson
Interim Superintendent of Schools

Standardized Assessment Schedules
Pursuant to N.J.S.A. 18A:7C-6.6, school districts and charter schools must, by October 1 of each year, provide parents or guardians certain information on any State assessment or commercially-developed standardized assessment that will be administered in that school year.

The information provided in the attached chart is a tentative standardized assessment calendar.† The administration date indicates the window available for testing.† Each respective building will be creating testing windows that will provide for the least amount of disruption to the educational day.† If a student is permitted extra time or any other accommodations, the respective school administration and Special Services personnel will work together to schedule the appropriate accommodations.

Links to testing information, background data, and/or sample test problems where available for each of the specific tests are included in the chart. As each testing window nears, parents can expect a letter from their child's school detailing their specific protocols for that test administration.

If you have any questions, please contact your child's school.
