WOOD-RIDGE, NJ -- With schools on summer break, Wood-Ridge School District will undergo some exterior construction projects as announced at Monday night's Board of Education meeting.

Nicholas Cipriano, Superintendent of Schools, said the parking lot outside the central office was in "desperate need of repairs," and cited the "retaining wall was giving way and the asphalt was always being patched up." He said that it should be completed "hopefully by September."  He said the town wants to work on beautification, just as it had on Valley Boulevard. He thanked the town, and council, and Board, and thanked "the community for its understanding."

In an email, Cipriano said the scope of the work will include "the high school parking lot is being enlarged to increase the available parking, the driveway entrance is being re-designed and a new electronic sign board is being installed, and new light posts on the curb in front of the school."
