Dear Parents/Guardians of Valley Road Students and Students,


We hope you had a great summer and look forward to seeing you and your child on Thursday, September 3rd. School homeroom starts at 8:40am. We open the doors at 8:25am for students to enter. Students have from 8:25 to 8:40am to enter the school before homeroom officially starts.  Parents may walk their child to the classroom on the first day of school. However, after the first day, we ask parents to leave the children off at the outer doors to keep the school safe. School ends at 2:55pm. You can find more detail in our student/parent handbook, which will be posted on our website in a few days. Check the web site at vrs.clarkschools.org.  Last year’s handbook is on the website at the present time, but we will add the updated version soon.  We encourage you to read over the arrival and dismissal procedures, especially if you are new to our school family. We will also send home a packet of information during the first week of school. 

Our school arrival and dismissal procedures which were implemented last year for the new driveway should be followed this year. These procedures will be in the handbook.


The school schedule will continue to run on a six day rotating basis. The days will rotate A-F so that the day of the week for classes will change each week by one day. This will keep us from missing a lot of time on a given day of the week. We will start on the next letter day after each closing and no day will be lost due to holidays or days off.  Using a six day schedule also allows us to make the schedule better for our Reading/Language Arts classes and Math classes. Come and hear more about your child’s class and the new school year at our Back to School Night on Tuesday, September 29th at 7:00pm.  You will receive more information about Back to School Night in a few weeks.


We hope to see you on September 29th at Back to School Night and to see your child on September 3rd for the first day of school.  Remember that the 29th of September will be a 12:40 dismissal with no lunch served.

Lost Bracelet:
Someone lost a bracelet in the school sidewalk area or on Liberty Street or Prospect Street. It has tremendous sentimental value. If you find it please call the school office at 732-388-7900 or e-mail Joe Beltramba at jbeltramba@clarkschools.org

Thank you.
