School Delays and Closures
The district will take the following steps to notify families in the event of a change to the school schedule:
Honeywell Instant Alert Messages are delivered by way of a family’s main phone number on file with the school district. The Honeywell system also allows for additional devices (cell phone, work phone) to be added by a family to their account. In order to receive the messages on these other devices, please review the instructions below for adding devices and checking the accuracy of information already on file. It is highly recommended that families review their account before the winter season arrives.
A banner will appear across the district’s website with information regarding the situation. In the event of a delayed opening or early dismissal, be sure to consult the website; additional details will be posted there that are beyond the message scope of Honeywell. In the event of a wide-spread emergency encompassing a large service area for Honeywell, it is possible that voice and data messages could be delayed in the company’s queue. Routinely checking the website is a good practice during known emergencies.
Local media sources
The district will provide information to FIOS 1, News Channel 12 New Jersey, and Channel 2 News.
