Back to School Nights
Wayne Township Public Schools will be hosting Back-To-School Nights from September 9, 2014 through October 1, 2014. Take this opportunity to visit your child's school and to meet teachers, principals, administrators and Board Members. It's a great way to build that all-important home-school connection. The Back-to-School Night dates can be found on the Districtwide Event Calendar. Click here to view the calendar.
 
 
2014-2015 School Forms
The 2014-2015 school year has begun!  Click here to download and/or print forms, then sign and return them to your child’s school as required.
**  
There seems to be some confusion regarding one of the forms we are asking you to return as part of our back to school packet.  This year,  the Parental Consent to Survey and PPRA (Protection of Pupil Rights Amendment) Notice was included as part of this packet.  Please note that the Consent to Survey and PPRA Notice is intended only to notify you of your right to opt out of any “protected information surveys” as listed on the notice.   No student surveys are planned at this time.  If and when the District determines that a student survey is warranted, you will receive another notice specifically describing that survey and giving you an additional opportunity to opt out of the survey if you so wish.
 
Please contact Naomi Conklin, Coordinator of Student and Staff Relations, at 973-317-2165 or by e-mail at nconklin@wayneschools.com if you have any additional questions.

Business Office Receives Certificate of Excellence Award
We are pleased to announce that our district has received the Certificate of Excellence Award in Financial Reporting from the Association of School Business Officials International (ASBO).  The district was recognized for its Comprehensive Annual Financial Report for the fiscal year ending 2013.  Congratulations to Juanita Petty, Nicole Schoening, and the entire Business Office for achieving this distinction!
 
Operation Take Back
On Saturday, September 27th, 2014, the Wayne Police Department in conjunction with the D.E.A. will be holding “Operation Take Back.” This semi-annual event will take place in the lobby of Wayne Police headquarters between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. On hand to collect all unused prescriptions and to answer any questions will be Detective Sergeant Jay Celentano of the Special Operations Unit and Detective Sergeant Charles Ahearn of the Youth Bureau. We strongly urge parents in our community to take advantage of this program to discard any unused or expired prescriptions. The Wayne Police Department has identified the illegal use of prescription drugs as a rising trend among the younger people in our community. This program is a voluntary prescription pill collection that will allow parents an opportunity to protect their families. We will not be collecting over the counter medications, needles, or any medication in liquid form.
Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Grades
As per the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act (ABR) (P.L.2010, c.122), the Wayne Township Public Schools has posted its Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights Act grades to the district's HIB webpage, and to each individual school's webpage. Click here to view a copy. Please feel free to contact Mrs. Naomi Conklin, District Anti-Bullying Coordinator, nconklin@wayneschools.com, if you have any questions.
