• Inclement Weather Information

    During the school year, it may become necessary to close school, delay the opening of school, or have an early dismissal due to inclement weather or other emergency situations. Parents and staff members will receive announcements from the SchoolMessenger automated telephone system with regard to emergency school closings resulting from stormy or inclement weather or any other emergency. Home telephone numbers are obtained from our student management system.

    It is important to keep your telephone number up to date with your child’s school otherwise you will not receive a call.


    The District’s established procedures are: In the event of severe inclement weather, information about school closings, delayed openings, or early dismissals can also be obtained as follows:

    • dial main telephone number of a school and press "1" High School – (732) 396-1090 7th & 8th Grade Academy – (732) 396-1025 Roosevelt School – (732) 396-1060 Franklin School – (732) 396-1050 Madison School – (732) 396-1070 Cleveland School – (732) 396-1040
