Welcome Back!

Welcome to Robert D. Reynolds School for the 2021-2022 school year! Hopefully, the summer has provided you with many opportunities to spend quality time with family and friends. It continues to be an honor to serve as the principal of our learning community. September is such a magical time in Reynolds School. I am looking forward to working together as we continue to nurture our students in their ongoing development.


The 2021-2022 theme, "At Reynolds School We Learn and Grow. Being Our Best is What We Know!” was created by first grader, Leah Ford. As always, we are so thankful and truly inspired by the themes that our students submit each year.

First Day of School Information

All of our Back to School forms will be located directly in Genesis and on our School Website. Please read through this information carefully as it contains all of the important information for the start of the school year. To ensure that the school year gets off to a smooth start, please complete all of the forms prior to the start of school. The dismissal form is especially important to have in advance of the first day.


Please note that only students may enter the building on the first day of school. Please plan for this prior to drop off on September 2nd. It might help to speak to your child about this and plan a spot for a goodbye hug before walking into the building.


We are looking forward to a great start to the school year!

Summer Updates

Thanks to the Upper Saddle River Board of Education, we had several summer projects going on at Reynolds School. New windows were installed in the entire first grade wing of the building. In addition, we have a Reynolds School Sign in the front of the building! A special thanks to our custodial staff and technology department for helping with the transformation over the summer to get our building into wonderful condition for this school year.

Welcome New Teachers

Curriculum Information

On behalf of the Reynolds faculty, I would like to invite you to attend our Back to School Night on Wednesday, September 29th. Throughout the year our school website, periodic calendars, newsletters, and Twitter account (@ReynoldsUSR) will provide you with the most current information.


We will discuss information specific to your child's grade level curriculum and classroom routines as well as review updates to the Reynolds School Report Card for the 2021-2022 school year.


We continue to focus on providing the highest quality instruction to our students, and a safe and innovative environment that promotes their overall wellness. We will provide detailed information about all of our curriculum and programs on September 29th. We look forward to a wonderful year ahead!
