With a blizzard expected to dump nearly two feet of snow on New Canaan between Friday morning and Saturday afternoon, New Canaan schools officials say they’ll make a decision about school tomorrow by 5:30 a.m. Friday.
“Because of our location and geography, this call may once again be a challenging one due to the track and timing of the storm,” said an email from the district to public school parents. “The decision has to be made by 5:30 AM to allow sufficient time for buses and staff to respond.”
If the schools trigger an early dismissal, here’s what the schedule would be, officials say:
- South School: 11:15 a.m.
- East School: 12 p.m.
- West School: 12 p.m.
- Saxe Middle School: 11:15 a.m.
- New Canaan High School: 10:30 a.m.
“At this time the predictions still contain much variation,” the email said.
