As our region is now under a winter storm warning for tomorrow, I thought this would be a good time to send you a reminder regarding school closings, delayed openings, and early dismissals for inclement weather.
In the event of inclement weather in the morning, the Superintendent will make a decision about the status of school typically by 5:30am. Once I receive the decision from the Superintendent, I will send out the automated phone, email and text messages to parents/guardians and staff members through School Messenger. If you feel you may have missed the automated message and are unsure of the status of school for the day, the easiest way to check is to visit the district website, www.nhvweb.net, call the school’s main number (North-908-713-4199, Voorhees-908-638-2199) and choose option 9, or visit the schools’ Facebook page. These three avenues are updated no later than 6:00am in the event of inclement weather.
If we have to dismiss school early due to inclement weather, this decision is typically made by 10:45am as we need to allow time for the buses to assemble. At that time, you will receive a message through School Messenger and we will update our website, Facebook pages, and outgoing phone message on the main line.
We also notify some radio and TV stations if we are closed, having a delayed opening or dismissing early. Please click here for the list of media outlets.
Wishing you safe travels tomorrow!
