Dear Parents,


By now you have received the most important word about how this school year has begun – the informal reports given to you by your son or daughter.  The faculty and staff in Franklin Lakes Public Schools hope those reports are positive and we hope you feel the school year has begun well for your children.


From my perspective, the school year in Franklin Lakes is off to a terrific start.  All classes began smoothly and these first few days have been a fine beginning of what should be a productive school year. The students are adjusting to their new schedules and their changed surroundings are a friendly presence in the school.   The boys' and girls' energy and smiling faces show us we are looking at a fabulous school year ahead.


If you have any concerns about any aspect of your son’s or daughter’s schooling, feel free to contact the teacher concerned, his or her guidance counselor, principal or me.  We welcome your inquiries.


I look forward to meeting many of you at the Back-To-School Nights.


Educationally Yours,


Dr. Gayle Strauss
