Ridgewood NJ, after a drop off at Health Barn a school bus driver was told to park at Graydon Pool . Sources say the driver plugged the GPS coordinates and headed toward Maple Avenue .  Unfamiliarity with the location of the parking lot and careful attention to the GPS commands led the driver to errantly turn in at the barn and head across the sand on the Maple Avenue side and then the Linwood Avenue side leaving the bus stranded . Fortunately no children were on the bus and no one was injured ,except for a bruised ego . A tow truck was called in to remove the bus .

Ridgewood NJ, due to the fact that there is a lack of lifeguards, certain areas of Graydon Pool must be closed for safety reasons, from now through Labor Day.  The kiddie pool area and shallow end will be open first, but unless there are sufficient lifeguards, the deep end will not be open.  Currently, Graydon Pool will be closed completely on August 24th, and August 30th through September 3rd.  Part of this is due to the fact that Ridgewood High School will be starting classes on September 1st, which is prior to Labor Day.  This has not happened since the 2015-2016 school year.  As stated above, we are hoping that there are certified waterfront lifeguards in the area who are willing to work at Graydon Pool for these days, so that we may keep the pool open every day through Labor Day.
