At approximately 12:15 PM today, a Cessna plane crashed in Atco, NJ. There was only one person on board (the pilot). The cause of the crash is under investigation.
There were many rumors circulating that the plane crashed into one of the Waterford school buildings and killed students. This is NOT true. No bystanders were injured or killed in the crash. The crash was about 150 feet from a residence.
Should there be any additional information that pertains to our schools, I will share via social media, the district website, and on here. If you have not signed up for district text messages or have not followed / liked the district on social media, please do so.
