  • 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

Joseph A. DeCorso

Assistant Superintendent 


I currently reside locally in Essex County where I live with my wife Sara and my sons, Joseph and Michael. I am extremely excited to be in now my eleventh year as an administrator in the Lyndhurst Public Schools. I am committed to the success of all academic endeavors within our schools as well as the Lyndhurst Township as a whole.

Professional Background

Before becoming the Assistant Superintendent I was the Director of Curriculum and Instruction. Prior to that I served as the principal of Roosevelt School here in Lyndhurst for four years. I however started my career in Lyndhurst as the principal of Franklin School. Before becoming an administrator I started my career in education as a fifth grade classroom teacher. From there I went back to school to get my certification in special education and became a special education teacher in Newark, NJ. After working for several years as a special education teacher I decided to pursue my Masters of Arts degree in school administration. Since enrolling in and completing the graduate program I have had the opportunity to work in several leadership roles in public schools. I was first the coordinator of special education for a building servicing over 250 special needs students, with classifications ranging from Specific Learning Disabled to Autistic. From this position I transitioned into becoming a building vice principal where I was a member of the administrative team responsible for over 900 pre-kindergarten to eighth grade students.


As a former vice principal and resource coordinator of special education, I believe all children have the ability to learn and have the right to an appropriate education. This belief has driven me throughout my career and motivated me to become an instructional leader compassionate to every learner. This philosophy is rooted in my special education experiences as both a teacher and coordinator. As educators we must believe every student has the ability to achieve greatness and must work to ensure they are afforded all opportunities to do so.

Home/ School Connection

As a husband and father I know the importance of family and want to ensure every student in The Lyndhurst Public Schools is welcomed into our learning community. My goal is to make sure there is a seamless bridge between the home and school. All stakeholders must be involved in a child’s education and it is our duty as teachers, parents, and administrators to make sure this happens.


The town of Lyndhurst offers many great programs and supports the schools in a variety of ways. I believe it is our responsibility as the Lyndhurst Learning Community to give back and contribute to the town of Lyndhurst. Our district will always support and welcome visitors from the town and will assist the community by providing additional resources whenever possible.
