Emergency Response

Emergency Response Plan
The school has a written Emergency Response Plan so that we may better prepared to handle various types of emergency situations. The Plan is only available to school staff members because it contains information about the school. In the event of an emergency, we have made provisions to contact all parents by phone. As shown, we may also reach-out by text message.

Pre-Determined Off-Site Evacuation Locations
As a result of toxic spill, explosion, gas leak, natural disaster, facility hazard, bomb threat, or some other issue that would require we leave our facilities, we would move students to an off-site evacuation site. Staff and students would immediately attempt to relocate via school bus, staff vehicles, parent vehicles, emergency responder vehicles, or by some other safe method, to one of the following:

Location #1 (Primary Location)

Hillsborough Volunteer Fire Company #3

324 Woods Road

Hillsborough, NJ 08844

General #: 908-359-3333

Head north from the intersection of Woods Road and Hillsborough Road. Building is ¼ mile in on the right.

Location #2 (Secondary Location if Primary is not available)

Harlingen Reformed Church

2142 US Route 2016

Belle Mead, NJ 08502

General #: 908-359-3556 (Lead by Pastor Chris)

 At the intersection of Rt. 206 and Dutchtown-Harlingen Road. Access parking lot from Dutchtown-Harlingen Road.

Students would be escorted to the off-site location, and remain there until the “All Clear” is declared, or until Parent Reunification has been organized and parents have been notified when and where to pick-up children.



Family Reunification
In the event of a major hazard that necessitates a large evacuation, such as several neighborhoods, government authorities may determine the mass shelter locations. All staff members will accompany their assigned children to the shelter and remain with them while families are notified.

After an emergency incident, and once it is deemed safe to pick-up the children, parents will be directed by school staff to the pick-up location for reunification. Students will only be released to persons who are listed on the student’s Emergency Contact Form.
