Message Board

  • -Please make sure your child has safe shoes for gym class as well as playing on the playground. Safe shoes are considered those with some kind of heel strap and rubber soles.
    -Please send lunch money in a bag or envelope with your child’s name on it. Better yet….purchase lunch tickets! Note: Kindergarten parents may find it helpful to send a note if your child should be ordering, until children are used to the process.
    -If you haven’t returned beginning of the year paperwork, please do so as soon as possible. This helps us plan for dismissal and contact you in case of emergency.
    -Any changes to your child’s dismissal must be made in writing before 2:00 PM. It is most preferable for you to send in a note at the beginning of the day.
    -With the days already turning cooler, try to dress your child in layers to keep them warm in the morning and allow them to cool off after gym or recess.

Welcome to Mountain Way School

A Welcome Message from the Principal 
 *Where the stars of tomorrow shine brightly today*
 Mountain Way School is an early childhood learning community serving the needs of Morris Plains’ children in preschool through second grade. Our school philosophy embraces each child entering school and recognizes his or her unique needs, abilities, aptitudes, and interests. A creative, caring, and competent professional staff encourages every child to learn, grow, and flourish within a challenging yet supportive environment. Children develop positive self-esteem coupled with a love for learning, acquisition of knowledge, and problem solving skills.  We look forward to partnering with you through your child's early school experience.  For more information about out school or programs, please contact Lindsay Vieira, Principal at 973-538-0339 x1 or
