Classes will meet – February 12, 2019

Classes will meet on our normal Tuesday schedule today.

Because the largest proportion of faculty members and students live on the campus and can reasonably be expected to carry on normal routines in spite of bad weather, the School does not typically cancel classes when conditions are threatening.

At the same time, Lawrenceville recognizes that a significant segment of the School population may sometimes find it hazardous to travel to the campus. The safety of our students is most important. We ask day parents to use their best judgment in such circumstances. On these occasions, absences will not be charged against the student’s record. Students may, however, wish to contact a teacher via e-mail or check their online course system for assignments or other instructions.

All Clear – Friday, December 7, 1:25 PM EST

Dear Lawrenceville Community,

Local authorities have now designated the campus ALL CLEAR.

Students and faculty are returning to campus. Information on lunch is forthcoming.

Boarding students should return to campus – or contact their Housemaster – by their regular check-in time.

Non-essential staff are dismissed for the day.

All classes and athletics are cancelled for today (Friday). Lawrenceville will return to its regular schedule tomorrow (Saturday, December 8th).

Emergency Alert – Friday, December 7, 12:10 PM EST

Dear Lawrenceville Community,

All students – accompanied by Lawrenceville faculty – are safe at Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Day Parents: You may pick up your student at the Bristol-Myers Squibb facility, 3401 Princeton Pike, Lawrence Township, N.J. Arrive at the front gate, tell the guard you are a Lawrenceville parent, and you will be directed where to pick up your Lawrentian. If you are unable to pick up your student, he or she will remain at Bristol-Myers Squibb – along with Lawrenceville faculty. They will return to campus once it is designated safe by authorities.

Boarding Parents: All students will remain at Bristol-Myers Squibb, accompanied by Lawrenceville faculty members, until campus is designated safe by the authorities.

We will continue to provide hourly updates to keep you informed.

Emergency Alert – Friday, December 7, 11:10 AM EST

Dear Lawrenceville Community,

Within the last half hour, the Lawrenceville School received a voicemail message on the School’s main phone line alerting the School to a possible pipe bomb on campus. The School immediately evacuated all faculty, staff, and students. 100 percent of the students have been accounted for. All students have been relocated to the Bristol-Myers Squibb facility on Princeton Pike (Lawrenceville, N.J.). All non-essential employees have been sent home.

Local authorities have been alerted and have responded. We will be providing updates hourly to keep you informed.
