    WHS Drill Conducted Today

    Dear WHS Parents/Guardians:

     

    Schools in New Jersey are required to conduct security drills once a month during the school year.  A new law, P.O. 2021, c.365, has gone into effect that requires school districts to notify students, staff, and parents when a school security drill is conducted during the school day.  Additionally, students and staff are notified at the conclusion of the drill that it was just a drill and that no danger exists.

     

    This email is to notify you that Whitehouse School held a security drill at approximately 10:10am today.  The routine security drill went smoothly.
