Dear Parents/Guardians:

This afternoon, March 31, 2015, A. Russell Knight Elementary School and the Barclay Early Childhood Center were advised by police to conduct a lockout because of police activity occurring in the Barclay Farm community. This precautionary measure lasted about one hour.


The following protocols are followed during a lockout:


  • All outside activities are suspended
  • Exterior doors remain secured
  • No one is permitted to exit or enter the building except for outside activities
  • Classroom instructions and the change of classes proceed as normal
  • School staff are notified when the lockout is no longer in effect


The lockout was lifted at 1:45 p.m.

I would like to thank the Cherry Hill Police Department for their guidance in this matter. I also would like to thank our students, staff and teachers for their calm cooperation during the lockout.

Please feel free to call me if you have any questions.



Karen Rockhill

Reminder for Tuition Students

The first tuition payment is due August 15th via mail (Check or Money Order only).
Payments are to be mailed to:
J.F. Cooper Elementary School
1960 Greentree Rd
Cherry Hill, NJ 08003

Payments are due the 15th of every month, August - April
Tuition Payments are no longer being received at Barclay
Checks and Money Orders should be made payable to "Cherry Hill BOE" and mailed
in time to be received by the 15th of the month to avoid a late fee of $25.


Parking at school is limited. Parents are asked to park either in the front of the school building or on the street. We ask that you obey the posted "No Parking" signs on the street in front of the building, and the yellow curbs which also indicate no parking.

Additional spaces are available on Dorado, Winston Way and Covered Bridge Road as the spots in front of the school fill up quickly.

We ask that the parking lot in the rear of the school be reserved for faculty and staff, which avoids having staff members park in the front of the building or on the street, further congesting the front of the school during drop off and pick up. Carpooling, arriving early and walking are strategies that some of our parents have used to avoid the parking problems at Barclay in the past.
