In the event of snow or other hazardous weather conditions, the Teaneck Public Schools may announce a NO-SCHOOL DAY
or a DELAYED OPENING
Announcements are made by 6:30 a.m. on radio stations: WCBS (880 AM) and WINS (1010 AM); TV stations: Channels 2, 4, 5, 7, Cablevision Channel 12 and FiOS 1 News. In addition, this information will be available on the district website at www.teaneckschools.org
The decision about keeping children home in bad weather (when schools are open) is up to the parent/guardian. If students are absent in such circumstances, teachers will make every effort to help them make up work that has been missed.
SCHOOL CLOSING SCHEDULING
Please notify your staff of the following scheduling procedures in event of a snow day. Please be advised that the District follows two (2) schedules. Please inform your staff so that everyone is clear about the procedures because of the staff that travels between schools.
Secondary School(s) Schedule for Grades 5-12
In the event of a snow day, we treat the snow day as if school were in session at the secondary schools.
For example at the high school: if the day before the snow day was an “A” day and the snow day would have been a “B” day; the day after the snow day is an “A” day.
For example at the middle schools: if the day before the snow day was an “A” day and the snow day would have been a “B” day; the day after the snow day would be a “C” day.
Elementary School Schedule for Pre-K-4
In the event of a snow day, we would treat the snow day as if it were a “NO” day so that if the day before the snow day is an “A” day and the snow day would have been a “B” day; the day after the snow day is a “B” day.
