Schools 'Monitoring' Storm, After School Activites Canceled
Decision on school closings still in limbo, superintendent says.
All after school activities have been canceled Friday, Feb. 8 and the decision to have an early dismissal is being considered, according to Jefferson Township Schools Superintendent Joseph Kraemer.
The top schools chief posted an announcement on the district's website Thursday night, saying, "It is our intention at this time to have a full day at school on Friday. We will continue to monitor the weather during the course of (Thursday) evening."
Kraemer said it is the district's intent to make a decision on an early dismissal Thursday night so parents and faculty members can plan accordingly.
Forecasts are predicting the storm will dump anywhere between 10 and 16 inches of snow on northern New Jersey between Friday and Saturday, and the duration of the blast could last as long as 24 hours.
