Two-Hour Delay Tomorrow for Ridgefield Schools

The combination of the ongoing cleanup from the blizzard and freezing rain forecast for the morning led to the decision.

With many folks still digging out from the historic snowfall and the overnight forecast calling for freezing rain, Superintendent of Schools Deborah Low has announced that Ridgefield schools will be operating on a two-hour delay tomorrow, Feb. 11.

The superintendent made the announcement via an e-alert message. She wrote:

This is Ridgefield Superintendent Deborah Low with a message for families and staff on Sunday, Feb. 10, 2013, at 6 p.m. Ridgefield town and school crews worked during the weekend and road conditions are good for buses and school facilities are ready. However, some freezing rain is predicted for early tomorrow morning (Monday, Feb. 11). In addition, some out-of-town staff may need additional travel time to work tomorrow. Therefore, schools will be on a two-hour delay on Monday, Feb. 11. You also will receive an email update by 8 a.m. tomorrow morning (Monday, Feb. 11) to assess if conditions worsen. Thank you.

The forecast is calling for freezing rain eary tomorrow morning, which is expected to make for potentially dangerous road conditions as the state continues to dig out from the historic blizzard.
