NEW ROCHELLE, NY -- Schools will be closed all week for Spring Recess, including on Friday, April 6, as originally planned.

Last week, when a snow storm caused the District to close schools on March 21 - making it the fifth inclement weather day of the year - April 6 was at first designated as a make-up day.

Now that has changed. The District has instead scheduled a staff-only Superintendent's Conference Day on Monday, June 25 - a measure permitted by the New York State Education Department because of the spate of bad weather.
