Emergency School Closing Information
In cases of inclement weather, it is the intent of the Superintendent to ensure the safety of all students and employees.

The Superintendent of Schools, the Business Administrator and the Director of Buildings and Grounds collaborate with South Brunswick Township Police Department and Department of Public Works when deciding whether to close school or operate under a 90-minute delay.

The best interest of all students is kept in mind during the decision-making process. District officials make every effort to make decisions about school closures or delayed-openings by 5:30 a.m.

Radio Stations Notification is broadcast by local radio station WCTC (1450 AM) between 6 a.m. and 8:30 a.m.

TV Stations Notification is broadcast on Comcast Cable Channel 28 and Verizon FiOS Channel 36 (Viking Television Network) and Comcast Cable Channel 62 (News 12 New Jersey), Channel 4 (WNBC) and Channel 7 (WABC).

AutoDialer Telephone System (School Messenger) The District may implement its automated telephone communication system, School Messenger, at any time.  This communication enables administration to reach thousands of phone numbers in a matter of minutes.  This system will be used to communicate emergency information, including but not limited to inclement weather closings, early dismissals due to inclement weather or other such emergencies that are deemed important by the District.  In such instances, parents or guardians will need to have emergency accommodations in place.  At the start of the school year, parents or guardians are provided with information on how to sign-up for this service.  Parents or guardians have the responsibility for ensuring that this information is updated if telephone numbers change.
