Nor'easter Closes Local Schools Thursday

Storm expected to bring a foot of snow to the area.

While no snow had yet fallen, the Parsippany School District took a pre-emptive strike on a pending nor'easter, closing its doors Thursday.

The announcement was made just after 9 p.m. Wednesday night, as a storm with the potential of a foot of snow or more could blanket the area. 

The storm comes just a week after all local schools were forced into two closings and two delayed openings to start the month, as snow continues to accumulate in the area.

John make the decision by 3pm today. The forecast wasn't going to change. Why wait till 8:51pm.

Some schools closed for tomorrow around 2pm. today. Then there was a list of Morris County schools that announced closings around 6pm. Parsippany School District waited until almost 9pm. Did the man think that the storm was going to pass over or not snow enough so to have a delayed opening!!! WOW. AMAZING how it could not have been called around 3pm. After March comes April.....can't come soon enough.

I honestly don't have a problem with waiting. What if it had changed? You can't go back and put school back on because then you'd really have a problem if something happened.

There wasn't one forecaster that said it was going to change. It was coming and it came at the time they said it would.
