Growing Tomorrow’s Leaders Together

Mission Statement: Through the support of an educational community that embraces diversity, lifelong learning, and comprehensive wellness, the Cranford Public Schools will strive to build capacity in every student to develop the passion, perseverance, and creativity to shape the world around them.


Greetings from Brookside Place School! I hope this message finds you and your family safe and well and enjoying a restful summer. The past few months have been unprecedented with the effects of the pandemic rippling through our entire society and indeed the world. Certainly the field of education felt significant waves of change as districts across the state including our own embarked on distance learning platforms in March which continued to the end of the 2019-2020 school year.
Cranford Public School is currently reviewing directives from the New Jersey Department of Education to craft a plan for September 2020 and beyond. As always student and staff safety, health and wellness will be at the forefront of our planning.
I encourage our BPS students to use the Summer Math and Reading resources posted on our web page during July and August as we prepare for the fall. Reinforcing computation skills and broadening horizons by reading a good book are great ways to spend some summer hours. I hope these next two months also include plenty of time outdoors and some well-deserved rest and relaxation.

Take care and be well, 
Michael Klimko
