Minisink Valley bus drivers are meeting with the district's kindergarten and first grade students to teach lessons designed to give students a solid foundation in school bus safety.  Students will watch a short video then board a bus.  On the bus, students will review proper riding behavior and learn how to safely board and exit a bus.   Safety is a priority for everyone and parents are encouraged to discuss bus safety with their children.

Students are most successful when parents are actively involved in their education.  Open House is an opportunity for parents to learn about their child's daily educational experience.  Parents are invited to attend their child's open house.

Summer break offers us an opportunity to experience a different perspective in our daily living during the months of July and August.  For this reason, summer is regarded by many as a period where we can pause, reflect and re-group.   We hope that these past two months have afforded you the chance to do so and that you find yourself ready to head into the Fall season and the re-opening of school for our children. 

On behalf of the Board of Education and the entire faculty, staff and administration of our school district, it is a pleasure to send you welcome back greetings as we prepare for the start of a new school year. 

We are anxious to have our two campuses come alive once again.  The first day of school for our students is Wednesday, September 3, 2014  Welcome to a new and exciting school year.
