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.

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

 

  • Announcement of a school closing or a two hour delayed opening will be made over the following stations:
