Valley View's second news broadcast, "It's Raining Respect" Kicked off the first #OneMontville meeting on November 4. Fifty volunteers from across the entire Montville Township community have joined Superintendent Dr. René Rovtar to foster a climate of respect and acceptance. Everyone is encouraged to begin reporting random #OneMontville acts of kindness at OneMontville and @OneMontvilleNJ. To learn more see Latest News below.
Students at Valley View Elementary School created a news program that reported on a world where a down pour of respect brought kindness to everyone in the world. The #OneMontville team of volunteers includes clergy, faculty, administrators, politicians, parents, students and others.
We were recently notified by the Township that the latest milling and paving projects are scheduled to start on October 19, 2015. Woodmont Road will be resurfaced between Changebridge and Rutledge Roads and is projected to be completed in four weeks. As we understand it, Changebridge Road will then be resurfaced between Woodmont Road and the Community Center and is projected to finish by the end of November.
Because Changebridge Road is a main artery, delays are anticipated on many of our school districts transportation bus routes. The Montville Township Public Schools utilizes a three tiered bus system which means that one school bus vehicle and driver are used to transport a group of students on a high school route then a second group of students on an elementary school route then one last group of students on a middle school route. A school bus that experiences a holdup on the first high school route for example may very well be delayed in reaching and beginning its elementary school route which in turn will more than likely be delayed in reaching and beginning its last middle school route.
We ask for your understanding during the next few months and suggest that you consider a contingency for the drop off/pickup of your child should their school bus be impacted by these road resurfacing projects.
