Special Announcements


The New Jersey Department of Education has randomly selected the Rumson School District to participate in the 2014 Partnership for Assessment of Readiness for College and Careers (PARCC) field test. The NJDOE has selected grades 3, 5 and 7 to field-test portions of the PARCC assessment.

It is important to know that the purpose of the field test is strictly to evaluate both the process and the test questions, as well as the technology of the assessment. The state is not assessing the students, and the district will not receive any student performance results associated with the field test.  However, our district will benefit by having students experience PARCC test elements and by measuring our technology capacity to ensure a smooth transition to the operational assessment in the spring of 2015.

No student will be administered the PARCC field test in its entirety, and not all students in the assigned grade levels will be tested. Approximately 50 grade seven students will field-test the English Language Arts (ELA) Performance Based Assessment (PBA), and 50 grade five students will test the mathematics portion of the Performance Based Assessment (PBA).

The PBA testing window extends from March 24– April 11, during which the grade seven students will participate in three testing sessions of ELA and grade five students will participate in two testing sessions of Mathematics.  Later this spring during the End-of-Year (EOY) testing window in May, approximately 50 grade three students will field-test the ELA portion of the EOY test.

All parents/guardians of children selected to take the PARCC field test will receive a letter notifying them of this event.

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.
