Richard E. Byrd School has been participating in the OurSCHOOL online student survey in order to hear directly and anonymously from students in fourth and fifth grades and all of the teachers. We ask their views on things that matter to them such as student engagement, student wellness, and the school’s learning climate in order to help us in the planning process.
Now we would like to hear from the parent(s)/guardian(s) of all of our students to help us understand the views of the parent(s)/guardian(s) and provide us with information on how we can work together to provide the best possible educational experience for your child(ren).

Kindergarten Orientation set for June 2 - Please save the date
Orientation for all children registered to enter Glen Rock Public Schools kindergarten in the fall of 2016 will be held on Thursday, June 2. Two sessions are planned – from 8:45-9:45 a.m. and 10-11 a.m. – when parents/guardians and children will meet simultaneously but in different locations of the school. Families are asked to please plan ahead to attend these important introductory events.
Letters from the elementary principals will be sent to all registered families on or about Monday, May 2, noting the child’s school building and orientation session assignments. Any incoming kindergartner who is registered on or before June 1 will be included in orientation.
Families who register their child after that date will receive placement notification in mid- to late August. Registration packets for all students needing to register with the district may be downloaded from the district’s website at www.glenrocknj.org under the Parents/Students tab. Completed packets should be delivered to the Glen Rock Board of Education Office, located at the rear of the Glen Rock High School/Middle School campus.
