Welcome to the Mount Laurel Schools!

Inspiring Potential. Enriching Futures.
"The speed of communications is wondrous to behold. It is also true that speed can multiply the distribution of information that we know to be untrue."
Edward R. Murrow

Mount Laurel's Board of Education and Administration have established policies and procedures that dictate transparency in all aspects of our operation. You will find board of education meeting agendas, exhibits and minutes posted here each month. Our annual district budget, guides to the curriculum used in our programs and our complete district policy manual are also posted.

But, as Edward R. Murrow noted long before the advent of the Internet, misinformation often travels swiftly. We hope that our website opens the door to conversation with those who use it. If ever you come to this site to confirm information you have heard and are unable to find that validation, please use this link to contact us and pose the question directly. As partners in the education of the children of Mount Laurel, it is incumbent upon each of us to make intelligent use of the tools we have at our disposal.

Students: Register Now for the Get Fired Up For Literacy Contest!

As a way to promote reading, The Mount Laurel Fire Department and the Mount Laurel Library are excited to announce the sixth year of the Get Fired Up for Literacy program. This is a reading contest for all Mount Laurel public school students in grades 1-4. The contest will begin Saturday, December 21, 2014 and will end Sunday, January 4, 2015.

Unfortunately, It Is Also Flu Season ...
The Burlington County Health Department has observed an increase in reports of norovirus, commonly known as the “stomach flu”. Symptoms usually include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach cramping and last for 24-48 hours. Norovirus is easily spread and can be a challenge to control in a school setting. Students will be sent home if they are experiencing symptoms. Students can return to school when their symptoms subside. However, they can remain contagious to others for several days. For this reason, strict adherence to handwashing and environmental cleaning polices is essential. Attached is a fact sheet on norovirus, and some handwashing guidelines that may provide helpful reminders.

Board of Education

Did you know that the Mount Laurel Board of Education meets, in general, twice each month? All of our agendas are posted prior to our meetings, and our minutes are posted on the Board Meeting page once they have been approved. All presentations from staff and administrators made during board meetings are also posted on our meeting page for your review. Stay in the know ... visit that page often!

Board Meetings

The Reorganization Board of Education meeting will be held on January 6, 2015 at the Hattie Britt Board of Education Offices, 330 Mount Laurel Road. This meeting is open to the public. The Board welcomes public participation in meetings, and you will find complete agendas and minutes on our webpage throughout the year.


Allow me to offer some insight to our new parents and perhaps reminders to our veteran parents, about security procedures. By law, all Mount Laurel Schools practice a number of drills throughout the year on a regular schedule.
One of the most commonly implemented procedures is the Shelter-In-Place activation. A Shelter-In-Place may be called for many reasons. One event would be whenever the emergency squad is called to the building. It simply means that staff and students remain in the classrooms despite bells, etc. so that squad members are free to move through the building without hindrance.

The mission of the Mount Laurel Township School District is to prepare all children to be successful citizens and workers in the 21st century.
