Dear Franklin Lakes Families,
I am so excited to share with you that I have officially assumed the position of Interim Superintendent for Franklin Lakes Public School District. I have spent my first few days learning about the 4 schools and acclimating myself to the workings of your fine school district. Everyone has been incredibly kind and supportive and I am enjoying learning about Franklin Lakes.
It was obvious to me from the moment I stepped into the district that everyone is dedicated and committed to excellence. I am energized to making a positive difference in the lives of your children. I hope that if you are in the area you will stop by and say hello. I am eager to get to know you and I am looking forward to a great school year working with you and your children. Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Dr. Gayle Strauss
