  • 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

I would like to thank the Lyndhurst Board of Education for the great opportunity that has been provided to me.  The staff, parents, students, and community have welcomed me with open arms during the first few weeks of my tenure here.  WE ARE LYNDHURST! 

 

PERSONAL
I currently reside in Midland Park, NJ with my wife Johnna and three children (Carter, Callie, and Cade).  I grew up in Newark and Bloomfield, NJ.

 

EDUCATION
Monmouth University- 1999- Bachelor of Science in Special Education
Kean University- 2003- Master of Arts in Educational Administration
Liberty University- Anticipated 2021- Doctorate in Educational Leadership


PROFESSIONAL
My teaching career began in 1999.  I have four years of experience in a high school setting as a Teacher of the Handicapped (Replacement, In-Class Support and Behavioral Disabilities).  I am going into my sixteenth year as an administrator.  During the past fifteen years, I have been assigned the roles of High School Assistant Principal, Director of Special Services, Director of Athletics, Assistant Superintendent, Middle School Principal, and Superintendent of Schools.  Throughout my career, I have gained valuable knowledge and experience in many aspects of administrative operations, school law, curriculum, finance, facilities, code of conduct, and extracurricular activities/athletics.    

 

PHILOSOPHY
In thinking of my educational philosophy, I would like to think that it is a progressive one.  Classroom environments should be conducive to learning, with student-centered activities in place, and teachers acting as facilitators in the process.  Students need to understand how to collaborate with each other, while also being given the chance to be creative and unique.  It is our job as educators to keep students engaged and motivated.  Individualized instruction, tailor-made to each student, should be a priority of ours.  

Many educators have placed an emphasis on making children become lifelong learners, respecting and enjoying the opportunity at hand, while building their critical thinking and problem-solving skills.  Decisions made by teachers and administrators should also be data driven, based on assessment.  Last, but certainly not least, student/staff safety and security is of the utmost importance to our district.

I have been thoroughly impressed with the commitment and knowledge of our teaching, administrative, and support staff.
