SCHOOL CLOSINGS AND DELAYS

 

The decision to close school, have a delayed opening or to close school early is made by the Superintendent. Every effort will be made to make a final decision by 5:30 am to close schools or to have a delayed opening.

 

While there are numerous factors when making this decision the most important factor is the safety of “our”children.

Some questions that are asked when trying to determine the safest decision are:

            Can the buses deliver students to and from school?

Can students safely get to and from the designated bus stops? If so, can they wait safely?

Have the roadcrews sufficiently cleaned the roads, not only in our district but in the surrounding ones to allow for staff to report?

Is the inclement weather going to continue throughout the day, or has it ceased?

 

The following radio/television stations are notified in addition to the district website (www.robbinsville.k12.nj.us), and the district main telephone number (609-632-0910):
