Update: Fair Lawn will extend its police school detail -- stationing a highly visible officer at all schools, manpower-permitting -- through Friday. Police officers and patrol vehicles have been stationed at both Fair Lawn and Saddle Brook schools this week to allay the fears of both parents and students still shaken from Friday's school shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Conn. The Fair Lawn Police Department has arranged to have an officer at each of the district's 10 public schools during morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up times through Wednesday, manpower-permitting, Sgt. Richard Schultz said. Saddle Brook police chief Bob Kugler said his department had increased its uniformed and marked police vehicle presence around all…

The library could use some help to supplement its current reserves of summer reading books on the Fair Lawn Public Schools' lists.
Monday, June 25, 2012
Holding on to a book that you no longer need? The library is seeking donations of nine books that appear on this year's Fair Lawn Public Schools' summer reading lists to supplement its supplies for student borrowers. Students who would like to borrow any of this year's summer reading titles can do so at the library or through the BCCLS system, but some titles are limited (not enough to meet the demand without putting people on waiting lists or going through other libraries). If you'd like to borrow a summer reading list book, just stop by the library or call 201-796-3400, Ext. 5. If you have any of these books at home and no longer need them, please consider donating them to the library: -- Follow Fair Lawn Patch on Facebook and Twitter, …

At last month's Board of Education meeting, parent Patti Lakin asked the board to address whether Fair Lawn High School teachers would be writing recommendation letters for college-bound seniors
Fair Lawn students headed back to school Tuesday, soggy from the September rain but eager to see familiar faces and catch up with classmates they had missed during the summer. Fair Lawn teachers also returned to a situation they've come to know well Tuesday, but not one they're quite as excited about. For them, Tuesday marked the second consecutive school year that they've worked under an expired contract. The teacher’s union and school board held negotiations over the summer, and if last month’s Board of Education meeting is any indication, both sides remain cordial and proceedings are moving forward. What may be on hold, according to a rumor circulating among Fair Lawn High School seniors and their parents, is the practice of teachers …
