Icy Roads Close Local Schools Wednesday

Inclement weather adds another inclement weather day to year's total.

The Washington Township School District and West Morris Regional High School district will be closed Wednesday, Jan. 16 due to inclement weather.

A two-hour delay was announced by both administrations after Winter Storm Helen dumped a snow and ice mixture on local roads Tuesday night into Wednesday morning, but the inability to traverse Washington Township's roads forced both districts to close.

The only other inclement weather days needed in the calendar year were put toward Hurricane Sandy's aftermath.

How are the roads in Long Valley Wednesday morning? What are you seeing out there?

Freezing rain mixed with the snow from last night is not a good combination.

We should have e-days, I'm hearing more and more schools who are doing it. It counts as a regular school day and the kids must hand in their assignments the day they return in the classroom.

What if there's no power or cable for edays

I'm sure there are exceptions and I think it's cases like this, when the storms are not too bad, but safer to be home than on the roads.
