NOTE
If anyone needs to telephone a student in the event of an emergency, that person should call the Director of Public Safety at Drew University, at (973) 408-4444 to get numbers and any additional information.  The people who work at the children's homes ask us to ask people not to telephone for non-emergency reasons--the students may not always be easy to locate and the staff are very busy trying to take care of so many children!!! 


PLEASE ASSUME THAT NO NEWS IS GOOD NEWS.  
IF THERE ARE ANY PROBLEMS, PUBLIC SAFETY HAS CONTACT NUMBERS AND WILL BE IN TOUCH WITH FAMILY MEMBERS.
