The Mission of J.F. Cooper Elementary School is to teach all children to love learning, exceed expectations, and contribute to the human community.

All greatness of character is dependent on individuality. The man who has no other existence than that which he partakes in common with all around him, will never have any other than an existence of mediocrity.

Road Work on Springdale Road to Cause Delays From May 8-16, 2018
Road Work on Springdale Road to Cause Delays From May 8-16, 2018

Springdale Road will be down to ONE LANE IN EACH DIRECTION between the Springdale Farm Market and Justa Lane, from 7 am-3 pm each day beginning May 8, as NJ American Water will be working underground in the area. Police will be on location during each day's work period.

Additional work closer to the JCC and the Kresson Road traffic light is scheduled to begin possibly this Friday and into the week of May 14, which will result in altered traffic patterns at the Kresson Road intersection. Please plan alternate routes around this work for Friday, May 11 and early next week.

Suggested alternate routes are Cropwell Road to and from Route 70, or Brace Road to and from Rout 70. All traffic except trucks over 5 tons may also use Marlkress Road to and from Rt. 70 during this work.

***Please keep in mind there is long-term underground gas main work still occurring on Haddonfield-Berlin Road (Rt 561) near I-295 and Valleybrook Road, so please avoid considering that area as an alternate route.***
