We are writing to you tonight, out of an abundance of caution. Late this evening, we learned that earlier today, a school bus was stolen from Livingston. Police have confirmed that it has not been recovered. 


While this does not directly affect the Nutley community, we did want to make you aware of this happening from a neighboring Essex County district. There is no specific threat to Nutley, but any time a school bus is stolen, there are obvious security concerns.


The majority of our Nutley students do not take a bus, but we ask that all our students are aware of their surroundings at all times. If your child takes a bus, you can expect your usual bus driver tomorrow. As always, please remain alert and help your children to do the same.


Please report anything suspicious to the Nutley Police Department.



The Nutley School District serves approximately 4,100 students in Kindergarten through grade 12. The five elementary schools serve students K-6 and include Lincoln School, Radcliffe School, Spring Garden School, Washington School and Yantacaw School. John H. Walker Middle School serves students in grades 7-8 while Nutley High School addresses the needs of students in grades 9-12.
