    The Clark Schools have an immense need for after care aides.  The program is offered at our two elementary schools, Frank K. Hehnly School and Valley Road School, each school day from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.  The hourly rate of pay will be $20.00 per hour.  If you are interested in working in the program or know of someone who may have interest, please contact Mrs. Linda Berry, Program Coordinator, through email at lberry@clarkschools.org.

  • 2022-23 Bus Route Summaries

    Friday, September 2, 2022
     
    Good afternoon,
     
    Please log into your child's Genesis account and then look under the "Bus" tab to see if he/she is scheduled to be on a bus route this coming school year.  If you see a route number, then follow the below steps to find the route specifics. 
     
    Select the "More" tab towards the top right of the page.
    Select the "Transportation" sub-tab towards the bottom of that list.
    Click on the "2022-2023 Route Summaries" link.
     
    That document is also attached below for your convenience.
     
    If you do not see a route number within Genesis, then your child will not be receiving transportation through the school this year.
     
    Please email Mrs. Christine Unish at cunish@clarkschools.org with any questions.
     
    As always, thank you and enjoy the long weekend ahead.

  • ALJ Leadership

    Friday, August 12, 2022

    Good morning,

    I am beyond thrilled to announce that, at last evening's Special Board of Education Meeting, Mrs. Tara Oliveira was named as our new ALJ Principal and Mrs. Katrina Poskay as our new ALJ Assistant Principal. 

    Mrs. Oliveira, a graduate of both ALJ and Lehigh University, is coming to us from the Berkeley Heights Public Schools where she serves as the Assistant Principal of Governor Livingston High School.  She was named Assistant Principal of the Year on both the state and national levels. 

    Mrs. Poskay, as you know, is an ALJ English teacher and our Pride district newsletter editor.  She retired after the fall 2021 season as a Hall of Fame Varsity Field Hockey Coach. 

    Mrs. Oliveira and Mrs. Poskay are certain to lead ALJ in the most positive of directions.

    Mrs. Jennifer Feeley is deserving of a very special thanks for all of her years of service to our students and schools.  Mrs. Feeley had a stellar experience both teaching and leading here.  She has the most creative of minds and hugest of hearts.  While Mrs. Feeley will certainly be missed when she begins her retirement at the end of September, she will always have a home here with us in the Clark Schools.

    Please join me in congratulating Mrs. Oliveira and Mrs. Poskay and thanking Mrs. Feeley.

    Hope you all enjoy the weekend ahead.

  • SchoolMessenger Text Messages

    Thursday, January 13, 2022

    Good afternoon,

    Next Thursday (January 20) at 4 p.m., you will be receiving a text message from our district's SchoolMessenger short code number 67587.  If you would like to begin receiving text messages in addition to phone calls and emails from SchoolMessenger, please respond to this text message with Y or YES.  If for some reason you miss this text message, a flyer containing a QR code that will allow you to opt in after next Thursday at 4 p.m. is attached below.  The QR code can only be used after next Thursday at that time.  Parents/guardians, please make certain that your cell phone numbers are updated within Genesis prior to the end of the day next Tuesday (the 18th) as Genesis "speaks" to SchoolMessenger each evening and only phone numbers that are within Genesis will be able to receive text messages, even if the QR code is used.

    Thank you for your cooperation.  Enjoy the rest of the day ahead.
