Newark Academy views the safety and security of its students as paramount. In situations arising from inclement weather, local disasters or breaches of Newark Academy security, Newark Academy administrators will make every effort to communicate with parents as quickly as possible after students have been made safe.
Newark Academy uses an emergency alert system to communicate to NA parents when school is closed due to inclement weather or in other emergency situations. This system enables NA to communicate with parents via:
An automated phone call and/or text message to multiple phones or devices
A bulletin on MyNA.
The increased communications speed fostered by technology creates an expectation of instantaneous notification in emergencies, school evacuations or other types of unplanned events.
Newark Academy asks for understanding and cooperative support from parents when such events occur and will make every effort to communicate all pertinent information as quickly as possible.
