Closings, Delays and Dismissals

SECAUCUS PUBLIC SCHOOLS                              KENNETH KNOPS

                                                                                                          Interim Superintendent of Schools                                                                    

It is the practice of the Secaucus School District to keep schools open on a regular basis despite inclement weather. However, severe storms, which cause heavy snow accumulations, will force the closing of schools.  Sometimes we are faced with a light snow that creates hazardous road conditions during the early morning hours.  In instances such as this, the district will delay the opening of school by two hours and bus routes will be adjusted accordingly.  A delayed opening allows the safe operation of our school system since most commuter traffic has dissipated and the roads have been cleared by the Department of Public Works. Hopefully, this will minimize the number of days school will be closed during the winter season.

                                                                     DELAYED OPENING INFORMATION

 

When weather conditions prevent us from opening schools at the regular time, the following procedure will be put into effect.

 

  1. Announcement of a school closing or a two hour delayed opening will be made over stations 1010 WINS (AM Radio),

NEWS 12NJ (Channel 62), WNBC-TV (Channel 4), WABC-TV (Channel 7), WPIX TV (Channel 11), Secaucus School District – Channel 34 (Comcast), SBOE website www.sboe.org., and SBOE Facebook and Twitter Accounts.

 

  1. Residents may also call the schools for a pre-recorded message on the following:

Secaucus High School            201-624-0721

Secaucus Middle School         201-624-0722

Huber Street School                201-624-0723

Clarendon School                    201-624-0724

                 PK Early Learning Center      201-624-0723 (Call Huber St. School’s designated line for message)

 

  1. Each school will use Real Time Notification, our school-to parent communication system, to inform parents/guardians of school closings, delayed openings, and inclement weather or emergency early dismissals.

 

  1. On a delayed opening day, bus students will report to their assigned stop two hours later than usual.

 

  1. Lunch is served as scheduled on a delayed opening. Lunch is not served on one session’s or early dismissals.

 

  1. PLEASE DO NOT CALL LOCAL POLICE.
