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 12NJ (Channel 62), WNBC-TV (Channel 4), WABC-TV (Channel 7),
  • Fios1 News Emergency Closing System, Secaucus School District – Channel 34 (Comcast), and
  • Secaucus Board of Education website
  • Residents may also call the schools for a pre-recorded message on the following:
  • Huber Street School 201-624-0723
  • Clarendon School 201-624-0724
  • Millridge School 201-624-0723 (Call Huber St. School’s designated line for message)
Each school will use Connect-ED, 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 served on one sessions or
early dismissals (lunch may be served on early dismissal at the discretion of the Food Service Provider).
