Dear Parents,

In light of the recent school shooting in Florida, Donovan Catholic and St. Joseph Administration want to reassure you that the safety and security of your children is our utmost concern.

Father Scott Shaffer, Director of both schools, reiterated yesterday to an assembly of students and parents “If you see something, say something”.  The Toms River Police Department has and is working closely with our campus to help provide a safe environment.

Security plans and drills are in place, actively reviewed and practiced throughout the year.

In Closing, know that as the school year progresses both schools are proactively working together to present a safe school environment.

God Bless,

Dr. Edward G. Gere, Principal, Donovan Catholic

Mrs. Madeline A. Kinloch, Principal, St. Joseph Grade School
