Emergency Information/Closings

School Opening and Closing Times

It is the practice of the Secaucus School District to keep schools open on a regular basis despite inclement weather. However, severe storms, which cause heavy snow accumulations, will force the closing of schools.  Sometimes we are faced with a light snow that creates hazardous road conditions during the early morning hours.  In instances such as this, the district will delay the opening of school by two hours and bus routes will be adjusted accordingly.  A delayed opening allows the safe operation of our school system since most commuter traffic has dissipated and the roads have been cleared by the Department of Public Works. Hopefully, this will minimize the number of days school will be closed during the winter season.

Delayed Opening Information

When weather conditions prevent us from opening schools at the regular time, the following procedure will be put into effect:

  • Announcement of a school closing or a two hour delayed opening will be made over stations 1010 WINS (AM Radio), NEWS 12 NJ (Channel 62), WNBC-TV (Channel 4), WABC-TV (Channel 7),WPIX TV (Channel 11),  Secaucus School District – Channel 34 (Comcast), Secaucus Board of Education website www.sboe.org., and SBOE Facebook and Twitter Accounts.


  • Residents may also call the schools for a pre-recorded message on the following:


  • Each school will use RealTime Notification, our school-to parent communication system, to inform parents/guardians of school closings, delayed openings, and inclement weather or emergency early dismissals.  

  • On a delayed opening day, bus students will report to their assigned stop two hours later than usual.

  • Lunch is served as scheduled on a delayed opening. Lunch is not usually served on one sessions or early dismissals (lunch may be served on early dismissal at the discretion of the Food Service Provider).


PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE SECAUCUS POLICE FOR SCHOOL CLOSING INFORMATION.
