According to Superintendent of the East Ramapo School District, Joel Klein, Chestnut Ridge Middle School will be leased to a Jewish day camp, Camp Shalom, from Teaneck, New Jersey, this summer. At a school board meeting the resolution was released and stated that the revenue expected from the camp will be greater than past summer leases. The camp will be using seventy percent of the first floor and outdoor areas and will also be installing two concrete athletic areas them during the year. Parents at the meeting expressed disagreement with the lease because the school recently cut sports and summer school classes for students due to budget cuts, some stating that it is unfair that the students don’t have access to the school but the summer camp children will.
