Welcome to William Mason School

Welcome to the William Mason Elementary School! Our building is one of five elementary facilities that service Montville Township. We currently house a student population of just under 300 children, K-5, and approximately 60 faculty and support personnel.

 

Our educational belief embraces the notion that all children can learn and have that right. Here at Mason, we continue to work hard in creating and maintaining an educational environment that is both meaningful and exciting and that addresses the individual and collective needs of all of our students.

 

We are delighted that you have chosen to login to your school’s website. As you begin to navigate through the many options offered, you’ll be afforded access to an array of information, materials, and resources. From time to time, you may click on an area that is under construction. It is our way of updating and expanding the opportunity to better service you.  

 

WILLIAM MASON MISSION STATEMENT

William Mason School aims to provide its students with a learning environment that is safe, fosters learning and encourages respect of one another.  Parents will feel that their children are safe and they are seen as individuals who are provided with the opportunity to thrive in their social, emotional and academic pursuits.  Teachers will value the school community as well as their professional role within the learning environment.  The school community can be seen as an extension of their own family; priding themselves in being an integral part of the lives of children.

Extended School Year instruction Will Be Virtual for Summer 2020

ESY to be virtual for summer 2020On Friday, June 12, 2020, NJ Governor Phil Murphy announced that in-person Extended School Year programs could resume as of July 6, 2020, provided that students' educational needs were met in a safe environment. . The options presented by Governor Murphy for school districts to choose were virtual programs, in-person summer programs or a combination of both. After much thought and discussion Montville Township Public Schools has decided to continue to deliver all instruction and related services virtually. Given the short time frame, the district does not have enough time to properly prepare buildings and implement the required safeguards as outlined in the New Jersey Department of Health’s COVID-19 Youth Summer Camp Standards for students and staff. http://www.montville.net/News/virtual-esy-2020
