Facilities

The Facilities Department is responsible for the general repair and maintenance of the district's six schools and administration building complex. The district's building inventory is valued at over $150 million and includes three buildings dating to the 1920s, the historic Toll Gate Grammar School, Hopewell Elementary School and the original Central High School, now used for administrative offices, on South Main Street in Pennington. The department also cares for the district's athletic facilities and grounds at all buildings and oversees the work of custodial crews district-wide.

Integrated Pest Management Plan for Athletic Fields

The goal of an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) plan is to be site specific and to use a "common sense approach" that provides the least toxic solution, whenever and wherever possible, to control weeds and pests on all fields and grounds. 

Please read the information below to learn more about our plan.

2017 HVRSD Water Testing for Lead

HVRSD is committed to protecting the health of the students and staff. Per this commitment, and the NJ Dept. of Education regulations, all of the drinking water in our schools has been tested for lead. Testing was carried out using the technical guidelines of the New Jersey Dept. of Environmental Protection (NJDEP). A total of 258 samples were taken from all drinking fountains and food preparation outlets across the district's schools. There were 4 outlets out of the 258 that tested as "actionable", as defined by the U.S. Dept. of Environmental Protection as (15 ug/1 [ppb]). These 4 outlets were immediately, and permanently, removed from service.

Please see the file links below for the complete results of the water testing for lead that was completed in 2017 for all district schools. Each school has a printed copy of that specific school's results on file in the Main Office. It  can be viewed, upon request, during regular business hours. Please contact Tom Quinn, Director of Facilities, at email: thomasquinn@hvrsd.org, or phone: 609.737.4002, extension 2801, with any questions pertaining to this testing or the reports.
