Emergency Preparedness

Safety Drills

Our Lady of Sorrows School practices safety drills at least twice per month. These include fire drills, evacuation drills and lockdown drills.


Closings and Important Announcements

In the event of a school closing (weather-related or otherwise), parents will be notified using the Honeywell Instant Alert System. You will be contacted on the devices you selected on your personal page on the Honeywell web site.

In the unlikely event that Honeywell experiences a problem, there are other ways to receive emergency communications. The school closing will be reported via email, and will be on the home page of our website. In addition, if you call the school at (973) 762-5169, you will receive a message advising you that the school is closed. These are the ways to keep informed in case of a weather emergency.

The Honeywell System will also be used to convey important announcements, reminders and schedules.


School Nurse

Nurse Stacey Osucha is the full time nurse for Our Lady of Sorrows School. If there is a medical emergency, Nurse Stacey will call the parent to arrange for pick-up if necessary.
