ABR (Anti-Bullying Bill Of Rights) District and School Grade Report
December 22, 2015
In compliance with N.J.S.A. 18A:37-17a and the annual review of the Board of Education’s HIB policy as required in N.J.S.A. 18A:37-15c, the Glen Rock School District has completed a self-assessment in determining the district’s status in complying with the ABR Act. The district is required to report to the BOE and the public the exact grade reports issued by the NJDOE. The purpose is to provide the board and the public the opportunity to learn about the district’s implementation of the ABR. Glen Rock will use this information in its annual review of its HIB prevention programs, approaches and other initiatives. In completing the self-assessment, the use of the reference to “HIB” is intended to be broader than the terms “harassment, intimidation and bullying;” it includes initiatives aimed at addressing anti-bullying and the improvement of school climates, school cultures and other conditions that negatively affect student learning and growth.

Parking Reminder
January 13, 2012
This is a reminder that parents picking up Kindergarteners must use parking spaces around the loop or on the street. Parking in the staff lot to pick up or drop off kindergarteners is prohibited. The Police Department has granted permission for parents to park adjacent to the yellow curb in the traffic loop at dismissal time to pick up morning kindergarteners; however, you may not leave your car unattended at any time.  This is a fire zone and you will be ticketed
 
Parking in front of the school, in the staff lot or in front of the angled spaces is prohibited at any time.  Do not drive through the parking lot at any time to pick up or drop off your child.  This is for staff access only.
 
Please be certain every caregiver who transports your child to and from school knows and understands the procedures.  They are in place for the safety of our entire school community. 
 
Reminder: Dogs are not allowed on school property at any time.
