Chain of Command (pdf)
To assist in working with parents and community members, and in accordance with Rumson Board of Education Policy #9130, a “chain of command” has been established to model where to begin the communication sequence regarding a problem or concern.

School Lunch Information
Information on our new food service is available now in each school tab and will be going home with students on the first day. Lunch prices remain the same, but the complete lunch will be a real value which will include entrée (hot, sandwich or bagel & yogurt), water or milk, fruit, veggie, simple salad and bonus treat daily - sometimes homemade soup! Please be sure to read the Menu Guide carefully, as the menu itself is quite different. The focus will be fresh ingredients, healthy choices and great taste. For FORRESTDALE Students, a bagel snack will be available for purchase the first two early dismissal days.
