Montclair public, private school cancellations, schedule changes for Feb. 1
Montclair Public Schools announced mid-day Sunday all schools and offices will be on an "abbreviated day" or "Curriculum Thursday" schedule Monday, Feb. 1 because of the snowstorm hitting New Jersey early this week.
No teacher office hours will be held in the afternoon. All buildings will be closed and staff members who report to buildings would work remotely until the end of the abbreviated schedule. Central office staff will work remotely until 2 p.m. Meals will be distributed on Tuesday and Thursday.
No students were expected to be in the buildings, even before the storm — the district and its teachers union have not yet come to an agreement to return students to school buildings for hybrid instruction.
Montclair Kimberley Academy said all classes and all after-school activities are cancelled Monday.
Montclair Immaculate Conception High School will be closed as well — without a virtual day.
