  • Reporting an Absence 

    Please be sure to call if your child is absent and will not be in school.  You can call 908-709-6969 to reach the main office or 908-709-6973 to reach the nurse.  If an absence is due to illness, it is important to share that information with the nurse.  Also,  if there are any changes in your child’s health needs, please contact Mrs. Lazo, School Nurse, at 908-709-6973 or lazo@cranfordschools.org.

  • Kindergarten Registration

    Registration dates for both half-day and full-day kindergarten, as well as anyone who will be new to the Cranford Public Schools (i.e., grade 1, SNAPPY, READY, and incoming freshmen), will be announced in mid-January with registration taking place mid-February. If you have neighbors with children who will be entering the school system, please share with them that registration information will be emailed to parents and posted on the Cranford Board of Education website, TV35, and TAPintoCranford.  (Please note that the full-day kindergarten program involved a tuition-based  lottery.)   If you have any questions, please contact Michele Cammarata at 908-709-6202.

    DROP OFF PROCEDURES:

     

    ALBANY AVE. DROP OFF ( 1C, 1F , 2K, 2LA, 2M 2O)

    • A drop off zone has been created so that parents can pull up and let their child out of the car quickly and safely, WITHOUT PARKING.  A BAS staff member will be at the door at 8:20 AM, monitoring students as they enter the building.  There will be no parking in the coned drop off zone.  
    • If you would like to walk your child to the door, please find parking outside the drop off zone.  I suggest parking on the side streets.
    • The Albany Street doors (side door Grade 1 and backdoor Grade 2) will remain open from 8:20-8:25 AM.  Any child arriving after 8:25 AM must enter through the main entrance.
    • After dropping off your child, it is highly recommended that cars continue on Albany Ave., make a left onto Roselle Ave., and a left onto Cherrywood Ave.  This route will lead right back to Bloomingdale Ave.  We hope that this will reduce the safety hazard of people doing K-turns and U-turns during drop off.   ***

    PARKING LOT DROP OFF (KAMZ, KAMBA, FDK and KPMZ)

    • Kindergarten students will line up at the parking lot entrance.  The doors will be open from 8:20-8:25 AM and 12:00 PM. Any child arriving after 8:25 AM/12:00 PM must enter through the main entrance. 
    • When parking, please park on Bloomingdale Ave. or utilize the parking spaces behind the school.  The spaces alongside the school are reserved for teachers/staff.   

    BLOOMINGDALE AVE. FRONT DOOR DROP OFF (1K, 1T)

    • 1K and 1T students will line up at the front door entrance.  The doors will be open from 8:20-8:25 AM. Any child arriving after 8:25 AM must enter through the main entrance.
    • When parking, please park on Bloomingdale Ave. or utilize the parking spaces behind the school.  The spaces alongside the school are reserved for teachers/staff.
