During inclement weather, parents can obtain information about the schools in the following ways:

- In conjunction with the municipality, CODE RED, an automated notification system will contact anyone with children in our school system.  If parents of private, parochial or out of district special education children would like their telephone number added to the CODE RED system, please contact Central Registration at 732-531-3116 or   Please keep your child's school updated with phone number changes.  If you have a call-blocking system, you may not be able to receive the automated call.  The system will call you up to three (3) times within a few minutes of each other if the line is busy.
