The winter blast that we have seen in Western New York this year has caused schools to take snow days, as conditions have been unsafe for students to travel in.

“If student safety is ever a concern, we will not open,” said Iroquois Superintendent Doug Scofield.

With winter not yet behind us, schools are running out of their allotted snow days, causing them to find days other places.

“What happens next is to look at our school calendar,” said Dennis Kane, Cheektowaga School Superintendent. “We're looking at a couple scenarios. One would be…we have the Friday off before memorial day so it's a possibility that we would go to school that day and we have a couple professional development days left.”
