We welcome your visitation at any time to obtain this packet.  All documents, including residency proofs, should be completed prior to the assigned meeting.  Appointments may be made by calling Mr. Chris Spillman at 973-328-6224.  The Pre-K classes are limited to the available spaces. 

Dover School District Honeywell Alert System

Please be sure to update your Honeywell account in the event you change your phone number or contact information.  Some parents have voiced a concern that they are called too early or too late. 
Quite often, the time of the call is dictated by the event we are facing. If severe icing is forecast, we will try to make the call earlier in the evening to avoid a lack of communication due to downed trees or power lines.  Our cafeteria staff arrives at approximately 5:30 am in some buildings that serve an early breakfast, so we try to make the call early enough for them to avoid being on the roads. We begin internal conversations at 1:00 am, and are usually on the roads between 4:00 and 4:30 am.   The most challenging instance is when we are forced to make a decision before we see our first snowflake. 
We shall continue to do our best with the safety of the children in mind.  If one does not want calls before 6 am or after 9 pm, I suggest you log into Honeywell, disable your voice option and sign up for the text or email options.  Of course, if we had a sudden emergency, one may not be as informed, but we cannot send out multiple reports at a variety of times.
