Registration Instructions

From the Superintendent

As you are probably well aware, concerns regarding clowns have been escalating through social media outlets and news reports. This week, some towns in Morris County have received “clown threats” via postings on the Internet. Many of our students, particularly those in the lower elementary grades, have expressed fear about clowns in and around their schools.

We want to reassure our school community that, although we have not been able to verify a similar threat, we take these concerns very seriously. We are communicating with the Dover Police Department about this issue. The Dover Police will provide an increased presence around our schools in an effort to diminish fears. In addition, our administrators and teachers are reminding students that they are in a safe environment at all times in our buildings. We will continue to investigate the veracity of rumors and report any information to the local authorities.

The New York Jets and United Way Donate a Fitness Zone to East Dover

Since 1999, NFL teams have participated in a variety of hands-on community service projects, known collectively as Hometown Huddle. The NFL-United Way Hometown Huddle is a league-wide day of service designed to bring awareness and impact to the issue of youth health and fitness. During Hometown Huddle, NFL players, coaches and leadership participate in a variety of youth fitness projects in different NFL cities across the country on the same day. 
We are proud to announce the New York Jets selected East Dover as their 2015 Hometown Huddle partner building a fitness trail in our courtyard.  On October 20th, NFL representatives including the NY JETS players were at our school to dedicate the fitness trail.
