Dear Parents/Guardians:

I am writing this letter to inform you of an incident that occurred in the downtown area of the City this morning.

Just prior to the start of school, the Woodbury Police were informed that a gunshot was heard in the alley behind the Gloucester County Family Court building. This building is located across Broad Street on the south side of the main intersection.

The police recovered the firearm before school started and have a report regarding the description of the alleged shooter. As part of their search for this individual, Woodbury police were stationed around our building at the start of the school day.

A collaborative decision by the City police and the school district resulted in the determination that the matter could be handled by the police with no need for the school to take any special action. Faculty and staff were provided an update early in the morning and there was no interruption to our school day.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.


Denise Dunham Principal
