Emergency Closing Procedures

If school is closed due to the weather, difficult driving conditions or any other emergency, we will do several things:


Academy of the Holy Angels uses a voice and text messaging alert service to further enhance our communications system in the event of an emergency or weather-related school closing.  The service, K12 Alerts®, allows the school to send important messages to a cell phone text messaging number, two email addresses (work and home/other), and up to two (2) telephone numbers per family in the database. 

  2. A message will be put on the school website at 
An announcement that school is closed will be given to NEWS 12 NEW JERSEY TV station and you can also log onto News12.com.
The radio stations that will be notified are: WINS (1010AM) and WOR (710AM). 
You can also log onto the WOR website at www.wor710.com. The information will also appear on CBS2 (WCBS-TV) along the bottom of the screen.

If you want to check on our school closing, tune your radio or television to one of the above stations.

Because the Academy draws students from a large geographical area, it is impossible for us to know what conditions are like in each location. Our decisions will be based on local conditions here in Demarest, as well as reports from our various bus companies. If at anytime, you feel conditions are 
dangerous in your area, please keep your daughter home. We would much rather have an absent student than an injured student. The students can make up the work when they return.

K12 Alert System

A letter was sent home to all families with login information for the K12 Alerts system.  This system will be used to call and text message families in the event of a school closing, emergency, or any reason we need to contact families directly. If you did not receive a letter, please contact Ms. Young via email tyoung@holyangels.org.
