New Canaan Schools Superintendent Mary Kolek has canceled school tomorrow. She sent the following note to First Selectman Rob Mallozzi:
Northern Fairfield County, including Fairfield, Trumbull, Bridgeport and Stratford, continue to suffer the aftermath of a storm that had a significantly different impact in those communities than in Southern Fairfield County. As a result, many of our employees have been impacted to the extent they will not be able to get to work tomorrow. In particular, this shortage of staff is severely impacting our transportation system to the extent that I have been notified that we will not be able to operate tomorrow. Safe transportation is a requirement for districts and as a result NCPS will be closed tomorrow.
School offices and central office will be open on a 90-minute delay, for those able to get to work. We anticipate that all schools will be open on Tuesday, Feb. 12. I will provide an update mid day tomorrow.
