Cranford Police Department “School Route Plan”

The Cranford Police Department has established a “School Route Plan” for prescribing all elementary school children a recommended route to and from school. The “School Route Plan” maps include locations of existing guards and signalized intersections. We would like the school s to encourage their students to use the approved school routes and to disseminate this material to their parents. It will be the responsibility of the parents to instruct their children to follow the routes so they will benefit from the protection which is provided.

Summer Reading List and Math Packets 2014

As you prepare for your summer schedule, please take a few minutes to schedule time for math and reading activities.  Research is clear, students can experience “summer loss” that can be equivalent to three months of learning if they don’t read throughout the summer.
The purpose of these resources is to encourage students to become lifelong readers and mathematicians and to provide them fun and engaging ways to practice their reading and math skills. Elementary school children should read, or be read to, each and every day.  If this is hard with your busy schedule, please set goals for your children in grades K-2 to read (or be read to) 60 minutes a week and children in grades 3-8 should be reading at least 120 minutes per week.  Math packets have been included to provide students the opportunity to reinforce math skills and concepts.  Please click on link below:
