EMERGENCIES

The North Township School District has developed a Crisis Response Plan that is designed to minimize danger to anyone occupying a school should an emergency occur. Our main objective is to attend to the health and welfare of your children in the event of a crisis.

In most emergencies, your children will remain and be cared for at the school they attend. In the rare event of an emergency that prohibit reentry to a school building (such as broken gas or water main, a fire, or a toxic spill), students will be transported via school transportation/or walk to the nearest and most appropriate location.

Parents/guardians will be notified via ParentSquare as soon as feasibly possible of any emergency at their child's school. The district/school will also post information on its website as necessary.

We ask that you follow this procedure if you hear of any school emergency:

  1. Please do not telephone the school. We have limited phone lines. These MUST be used to respond to an emergency.

  2. Please do not come to the school unless you are requested to pick up your child. Any emergency involving your child's school may mean emergency vehicles and workers must be able to get to the building. If the emergency necessitates relocation of staff and students, you will be informed via ParentSquare.

  3. Check district website: www.nbtschools.org

North Brunswick Public School District Emergency Contact Communications System

The school district has implemented a notification/communication system to inform the families of students of important information like school closings due to snow and updates when there are emergencies in our schools. Families of North Brunswick Public School students are automatically registered for this service that uses the home and cell phone numbers that families have provided to the school district as contact phone numbers to make the notifications.

Whenever school is closed (or there is a delayed opening or early closing due to inclement weather) or there is a school emergency, the families of students will automatically be contacted using the contact information families provide. If you do not receive these messages , please contact the Board of Education offices at (732) 289-3000.
