Hurricane and Storm Information

High school football games scheduled for this evening are continuing as scheduled.


At this time, the SATs that are schedule for Saturday morning at Memorial are continuing as planned.

The Jackson Memorial High School Band Competition is CANCELED.

While forecasts are predicting the storm may not hit this area as hard as we anticipated, high winds can sometimes impact power lines which could affect planned events. Any changes to this information will be posted on this website. 


The governor's declaration of a "State of Emergency'' for New Jersey on Thursday empowers state officials to provide immediate assistance to local towns if necessary. 

The declaration itself does NOT mean that schools are automatically closed or that residents need to take any particular action.

For more information see this page on the state's OEM site.
