Inclement Weather Days 2017-18 School Year:
This is a message from David C. Mango, Superintendent of Schools. While we brace for the impact of the upcoming weather pattern, please be aware that the district has already used four of the six allotted Board of Education approved inclement weather days. If more than 6 inclement weather days are necessary, they will be made up during the spring holiday break in April beginning with April 6, April 5, and so on. Please refer to the 2017-2018 Great Meadows Board of Education approved calendar on the district website for more details.
Road Closure Notice:
Please be advised while the district recognizes the many challenges and obstacles presented in the aftermath of last Friday's Nor’easter storm, we ask that you partner with us in all temporary change of locations for transportation routes at drop-off and pick-up times. The district has been informed that the main areas of concern are Shades of Death Road, Danville Mountain Road, Townsbury Road, and the intersection of Free Union and Quenby Mountain Roads. During this disruption to our transportation services to affected households, the district encourages you to transport your children to all temporary stops as a best practice measure. The district has and will remain in communication with First Student Transportation, JCP&L Services and our local DPWs.

Hackettstown Public Schools and the Great Meadows Regional District are pleased to offer an array of programs and services for students with special needs ages three to twenty-one. As public school districts serving students with ever-growing diverse needs and challenges, we strive to build programs that breed success. Our District staff are committed to providing specialized academic and behavioral supports and services to students with exceptional needs while maintaining inclusion with typically developing peers. We are excited to make those programs available to students in neighboring districts.
It is important that all parents and guardians login to the new system to update their phone numbers and email addresses to prevent their missing important alerts from the school.
The County has a new program called Swift911. Residents of Warren County and those of us who commute to Warren County, can register our cellphones, work phones, home phones, e-mail addresses, etc. to the Swift 911 program so we will be notified of any emergency situations going on in our immediate area. It's a great tool for emergency management personnel to get the word out about public safety alerts. For example say a perpetrator is in the area or a hostage situation is taking place. They can zone in on that immediate area and notify people in those neighborhoods of the situation and to inform them to remain in their homes. People can only be notified if there phone numbers and/or email addresses are registered with the system. If people already have a listed phone number (as appose to a private number) they will already be registered into the system automatically.
The GMRSD will provide quality educational opportunities that ensure the individual success of all students within a safe and supportive environment and to build life-long learners who will meet society’s challenges into and beyond the 21st century. To that end, it is anticipated that all students will achieve the New Jersey Core Curriculum Content Standards (NJCCCS) at all grade levels.
