    Dear Lyndhurst School District Staff and Families,


    As part of the grant development process for the latest Federal American Rescue Plan Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ARP ESSER) Fund, we are asking for your input on funding priorities.  


    Be advised that this grant has specific funding parameters, which include different areas in this survey.


    Thank you for your input.  (Your answers will remain anonymous).


    If you have any additional comments or questions regarding ARP ESSER, there is an opportunity for public comment at a public forum being held on June 17, 2021, at 5:00 PM, in the Middle School Auditorium.

  • Alert:

    On Monday, June 7th, Governor Phil Murphy stated that school districts have the discretion to allow students and staff to not wear face masks both indoors and outdoors while at school/school events, due to the heat our state is experiencing.

    Throughout my daily endeavors in the last week or so, I have entered many public places where patrons are not sure whether masks are required or not.  Similar to these instances that I have experienced, this new guidance for schools is not very detailed.  As an educator, I feel that I have an opportunity to clarify what I feel is in the best interest of students that I am entrusted to oversee.  

    I spent the last 24 hours trying to determine which rooms/schools in the district are cool and which ones are not, but I do not feel that will be sufficient in addressing this.  Therefore, and effective immediately, students and staff members may unmask outdoors and indoors during the school day/at school events, as well as for any extracurricular/co-curricular activities for the remainder of this current school year (2020-2021).

    if the NJDOE sends out more specific guidelines, I will be happy to enforce those guidelines, but at this time, I feel that this is the best course of action to take as we have been instructed to make a local decision for the remainder of the school year.

    Students and staff who feel that it is in their best interest to continue to use masks/face coverings can/should continue to do so.

    Thank you,

    Anthony Grieco

    Superintendent of Schools

What we do..

Throughout the course of the school year, certain health screening procedures are performed at varying grade levels by our Certified School Nurses and District Health Services staff in compliance with NJAC 6A:16-2.1-2.5 Among them are:

  • Vision Screening
  • Hearing Screening
  • Scoliosis (spinal curvature) screening
  • Health Screening (height, weight, blood pressure)
  • Any student may be excused from any part of the above procedures upon written request of the parent or legal guardian. If you choose to not have the above screenings, your child will be required to obtain a physical exam from their primary medical doctor. Please provide documentation to the nurse and this will become part of their permanent health record. 

Please complete and return all correspondence or request from you School Nurse promptly.

Please cooperate with the health rules and regulations as set forth by the district for the protection of your child and every child in our school system.

Remember we are a "Nut Free District", please comply with these regulations as our schools contain many students with life threatening allergies.
