HELP US PAVE THE WAY

The Rumson Education Foundation is thrilled to create an Outdoor Classroom on the grounds of Forrestdale. Designed with input from faculty and staff, the space will include a covered pavilion and seating, nestled between the greenhouse and the growing apple orchard. This facility will enrich science and STEM agriculture programs, and will be available for all classes from Deane Porter and Forrestdale.

Frequently Asked Questions
Answers to many of your questions.

Reporting Absences
Please report your child's absence from or planned lateness to school by 8:30am. You should call 732-842-0383, option 1 to leave a message or speak to Mrs. Divers. Your attention to this will save time and help us account for all students in an efficient manner. If your child is arriving late from a medical appointment, be sure to ask your medical provider for a note in order for the lateness to be excused. Please note that Deane-Porter school has a separate attendance line. Deane-Porter's number is 732-842-0330.

Phone Calls Home
Please remind your children that if they call you from school, they should leave a message when they do not reach you. If our nurse or school office contacts you, we will always leave a message. If you need to call back, please call 732-842-0383. Bear in mind that the number that shows up on your caller ID will not identify accurately where the call originated. Please listen to your voicemail message before calling the school back, and dial the main office number for the school of your child's enrollment.
