Dear Parents, Families, Caregivers, and Staff, 

We write to inform you that, according to the US Geological survey, a 4.8 magnitude earthquake occurred in New Jersey at 10:23 this morning.  Due to our close proximity, we felt tremors within the school buildings for several seconds.  No injuries or damage have been reported, and students and staff are safe. 

Administrators made announcements in each building to allay any concerns students had about the event, and instruction continues.  We do not anticipate any disruptions to our school day but will keep you apprised should there be any further updates. 


Kevin J. Smith, Ph.D.
