Denville Schools Announce New Start Times for Elementary Schools and Middle School


DENVILLE, NJ-- The Denville Board of Education is excited to announce that students will have increased instructional time for 2015-2016. While the arrival and dismissal times have changed, the morning bus pick up will remain relatively unchanged as compared to the 2014-2015 schedule.

The afternoon bus drop-off time will need to be adjusted to accommodate the additional instructional time. Bus stop information will be available later in the summer. The district is still working on a plan to run Valleyview later, and Riverview and Lakeview at the same time for 2016/17. Updates will be forthcoming.

The school start and end times are as follows:

Retro Review: Johnny Got His Gun by Dalton Trumbo (Citadel Press, 1970)


How does a reviewer do justice to a book called “the great American novel”? I first read Johnny Got His Gun during the Viet Nam war, when young people, nationwide, were protesting fighting in a war that was a senseless waste of life; a war in which the United States had no business participating.

The Truth About My Reading

The Truth About My Reading

He appropriately intimidated freshmen, even me, an English major, who found this common core course beneath my dignity. Frankly, as a graduate of Highland Park High School, and a survivor of Mrs.
