Emergency Information

EMERGENCY ANNOUNCEMENTS: Will appear on this page as needed.

Our emergency number is 995 and will be announced over KYW radio. Also, our  school name will scroll at the bottom of Channel 3, CBS TV.

All EMERGENCY and/or UNEXPECTED CLOSINGS will be posted on this site by 7 a.m.


Dear Parents,

At this time I would like to assure you that your children are safe here at Good Shepherd School. Your children and their safety are of the utmost importance to me and our staff.

Good Shepherd School in conjunction with the Diocese of Camden works hard to ensure that our school is safe and the staff is ready to respond to emergencies.

Our school in conjunction with other Catholic schools has developed comprehensive emergency preparedness plans to keep students and staff safe during a variety of emergency situations such as natural disasters, fires,
earthquakes and emergencies made by people, including bomb threats, intrusions and hazardous material spills. The plan includes directives and evacuation routes.

Realizing that written plans and guides are not enough, the staff has been trained how to respond in critical situations and what steps to take to keep students and staff safe.

We review these plans on a regular basis and take part in training for emergencies.

Communication is vital in emergency situations. Whenever a problem existed in the past we notified you immediately and will continue to do so.

We ask you to adhere to the following entry measures at our school.

  • When coming to school. Please enter on Atlantic Avenue, go to the office, sign in and obtain a pass to wear while in the building. Please sign out and return the pass when you leave.
  • Outside doors will be locked at all times during the school day, which includes up to 6:00 PM.

Outside and inside security drills are held monthly to ensure the safety of our students.

We will inform you of any further security measures that we plan to develop or install.

We realize that security procedures may be somewhat inconvenient for parents, students and staff. However, it is necessary for us to take special precautions to protect our children.

Sincerely,
Donald W. Garecht
Principal
