'But the board of education s deci sion Tuesday to stop the policy cismes too late for seven students who were removed from the stu dent council in October for failing 'W' turn in signed, so-called participant contracts that include pledges taponduct themselves in a "proper rtfanner" and not use drugs or alcohol. The students will not be reinstated despite the policy change, officials said. -Since September 1990 a signed agreement had been required for students taking part in sports; cheerleading or other extracurricu-14f activities. Board of education members voted unanimously Tuesday night tgend the practice, saying that rules pertaining to activities will be outlined in student handbooks instead. Many students participate in multiple activities, and requiring Rockaway Twp. to limit mayor ROCKAWAY TWP. - The township council tonight is expected to iJSss a resolution to prevent any interim mayor from replacing township department heads or employees, council President Samuel Yarosh said. mThe resolution is designed to '$!eep the continuity until Novem- , ber," said Yarosh, who will serve as mayor for up to 30 days between the tjjtne Mayor Charles Lombardo resigns and an interim mayor is chosen. JLombardo now works in Pittsburgh and plans to resign Jan. 15. tie council then will choose an in-rfj-im mayor from among three candidates put forth by the town-snip Republican County Committee.

Exit Continued from A1 jm 5cit numbers: Intervale Road Mountain Lakes and Route 10 are &6th 39; Main and Wootton streets R) Boonton and Parsippany Road Lake Shore Drive are 40; and Boon-lOn's Myrtle Avenue and Route 80 fire both 41. h The confusion doesn't end there. Jj On the northbound side, the exits for Route 80 have the new numbers Zi 41A and 41B. But on the southbound side, one old sign still lists tjie Route 80 exits with the old numbers 37A and 37B. H Also, several signs designed to Jguide motorists could now baffle them. For example, one sign instructs motorists bound for Cedar Jjnolls to use Exit 35, referring to the old exit number for Route 10. But Route 10 has become Exit 39. t Likewise, a southbound sign tells Inotorists to use Exit 31 for Morris-bwn Memorial Hospital. Exit 31 no icnger exists; it has become Exit 35. That isn't all. The new exit for the woute 24 freeway doesn't even have 4 number. Lamm expects it will probably get number 38. m The DOT spokesman said all Jtighway exits in the state with the exception of the New Jersey SCurnpike are numbered to correspond with the closest mile marker, ffhis was true at one time for Route 587. But the southern end of Route 287 inherited a three-mile section that Jffriginally was designated to be part oi a Route 95 connector, Lamm aid. When the Route 95 plans were Abandoned several years ago, the flection became part of 287, thus Sdding three miles to the existing highway. "That threw everything off," Xamm said. " DOT officials held off on chang-frg the exit numbers until the current construction on the northern iend of the interstate highway was Jlnder way, Lamm said. Z Route 287 is being extended north from Montville to the New York State Thruway. The road also is Eeing widened from Parsippany Ttorth through Boonton. 'We are trying to teach students accountability, and removal was a consequence (of not submitting the contract).' ' Lenape Valley Regional High School Principal " James Riccobono signed contracts for every activity was getting too unwieldy, board President Patrick Clancy said yesterday. But the board didn't act on requests by some parents at the meeting to reinstate the seven student council members. Parent David Togno, whose daughter, a sophomore, was dismissed from the council, said yesterday the penalty was too harsh. He said that while the contract was enforced for council members, he knows of students in other activities who didn't submit contracts, yet were allowed to participate. Togno said he was a member of the board of education in 1990 when the contract policy was adopted, but said it was never meant to punish students. The controversy over the contracts arose after student council adviser Colleen Kehler told seven students in October that they were off the council because they didn't submit their contracts despite numerous reminders. She made her decision after consulting with Principal James Riccobono, and on Tuesday other faculty spoke at the meeting in support of Kehler's action. Board member Eskil Danielson said yesterday it was up to the school administration to make a decision on the students. Riccobono said yesterday the seven students.neglected to comply with a policy that was in place at the time. The fact the policy ended Tuesday doesn't change what occurred before, he said, adding that it would be unfair to replace the alternates with the former members. "We are trying to teach students accountability, and removal was a consequence (of not submitting the contract)," he said. sion to low-cost housing. The boys, ages 13 and 10, are asking if they can put up a Christmas tree in the dingy, cold room. The girls, ages 18 months and 3 months, are too young to know about Christmas trees. Maybe that's just as well, their mother says. They won't miss presents they aren't expecting. All the children need winter clothes coats, pants, sweaters, hats and shoes. The boys would love board games or sports equipment, but say they know there won't be any Santa Claus for them this year. Let's prove them wrong.
