Ready or not, here we go! It’s the start of the 2020-2021 school year and Saddle River Day School IS ready. After a summer spent in task force meetings, researching safety protocols and best practices, and carefully planning our return, SRDS opened our doors and welcomed students back onto campus for the first time since March.
