Coming snowstorm could cut short winter break for Morris School District

Don’t pack those travel bags yet, kids.

If Thursday’s predicted snowstorm cancels classes, the Morris School District plans to shorten next week’s winter break, making up the lost day on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014.  (The day after Presidents’ Day.)

The National Weather Service is forecasting a potential for 8- to 10 inches of snow for the Morristown area.

Winter weather already has caused the district to close schools five times this school year, said spokeswoman Mary Donohoe.  That’s the maximum number of allotted snow days;  going forward, any additional lost days would have to be made up in June unless vacation days are used now.

The plan for next week was discussed at Monday’s school board meeting in Morristown.
