TV: News 12 NJ NBC - Channel 4

One blast of the fire siren will be sounded at 6:30am for closings related to weather. Please do not call the school, the police, or the Board of Education. These lines must remain open for emergency calls.


The District School Calendar provides for 4 days where the school can close, usually due to excessive snow or icy roads. Should school need to close more than 4 days the extra days will be taken back from the Spring break.

Should less than 4 snow days be needed,additional teacher and student "days off" will be provided immediately before and/or after the Memorial Day holiday in May, ensuring the final day of school and high school graduation dates remain in place as published. while still ensuring the district adheres to the 180 day annual student attendance requirement.
