Two-Hour Delay for Nazareth Schools Thursday and Friday
School officials expressed concern about students and the extremely low temperatures that are forecast.
"It is very unfortunate that Mother Nature has not been as friendly this year with snow and temperature situations," Dr. Dennis Riker, schools superintendent, wrote in a letter to parents. "Members of our community should understand that decisions to open and close schools take into consideration numerous factors; including the demographics of our area, student drivers, and student walkers. The safety of our children and staff is our number one priority."
Riker asked that parents ensure that their children are dressed in weather-appropriate clothing, and that they enter school buildings upon arrival.
School offices will also open two hours late on Thursday and Friday.
Nazareth students were sent home early Tuesday. There was no school on Wednesday.
