Warren Township Schools just opened last Monday — and the district still is working on such issues as smoothing out bus routes and bus stops.
The routes were being made more efficient, and a greater number of bus stop changes than usual were put in place last week, school officials said. The hope was that all routes would be settled quickly
Parents who feel their student's bus stop is unsafe should call 908-753-5300, ext. 6, or email the transportation coordinator, Mrs. Donlay, at email@example.com.
Back to School nights
Meanwhile, two back to school night events are scheduled at the Warren Middle School for this week. The annual Back to School will be held on Tuesday for grade 6, and on Thursday for grade 7 and 8.
Watchung Hills Regional forum on Sept. 24 referendum question
A $12.5 million referendum vote for projects at Watchung Hills Regional High School is coming up on Sept. 24, and the high school is hosting a Community Forum about the referendum at 7 p.m. on Monday at the high school's Performing Arts Center.
The projects include a series of major repair projects board members have been trying to find funding to undertake for several years, including replacing the 57-year-old steam heating pipe system in the South Building, replacing the roof on the South and North buildings, replace non-functioning exhaust fans, and replace the leaking glass window wall.
The referendum question also will include funding for redesign of the school's two cafeterias for improved efficiency, install an emergency access roadway at the south end of the school, and repave the school's parking lots.
The state would be expected to reimburse the school district for 40 percent of costs under a current construction program.
