DENVILLE, NJ -- It’s a new decade, and new things are happening in the Denville Township School District, which serves and supports 647 students and 100 staff at Lakeview Elementary, 419 students and 60 staff at Riverview Elementary, and 592 students and 80 staff at Valleyview Middle.

Summer projects that are under consideration include HVAC repairs and replacement at Riverview and Lakeview, electric service replacement at Lakeview, bus garage roof repairs and removing tables and repairing walls at the Valleyview gym.

There also are several projects for the new Riverview annex, the building once occupied by St. Mary’s Prep school just across the street, which will be used to help ameliorate overcrowding at Riverview. Projects include roof and masonry repair, flooring, painting, window/door repair/replacement, electrical and technology upgrades, security upgrades, sidewalk repair and installation, lighting upgrades and handicapped accessibility.

“We are excited about the addition of the Riverview annex building to take care of our instructional space needs as well as the shared project with the township to renovate the Valleyview athletic field, which will take place in spring 2020,” said Superintendent Steve Forte.

The school district also is planning several special events, including a geography bee on Jan. 16 at 6:30 p.m., at Lakeview. There will be a movie screening of the documentary Screenagers at Valleyview on Jan. 29, at 6:30 p.m. This award-winning film explores the vulnerable corners of family life and depicts the messy struggles over social media, video games and academics, while offering solutions on how parents can help their children navigate the digital world.
