Sachem Schools Closed Tuesday

District deems driving conditions for morning bell still unsafe.

The Sachem School District has announced that it is closing school for the second day in a row tomorrow, February 12, due to unsafe driving conditions brought on by the blizzard.

The decision from school officials and Superintendent James Nolan includes all after school and extra-curricular activities.

The closings, coupled with the lost time from Hurricane Sandy, may continue to impact future vacation days. Sachem Patch will continue to update the community when district officials make any decisions regarding future days.

They will probably take it off of the Spring Break. That's what other districts are doing.

There are no sidewalks for our children to walk on. You cannot expect them to walk in the roads with these morons driving 50mph through snow and ice! The roads are still horrendous as well, it's not fair to send them to school until these people do their jobs!

Yeah Peter R makes a good point. I am scared to send my little angel out to school, especially with no sidewalks to walk on. If school is in tomorrow, I am still keeping him home. He is not walking on these dangerous roads with maniacs driving around on these icy roads!

What about Wednesday? You can't even drive a bus down 1/2 the streets in the district, when are they going to make a decision on Wednesday.
