The six schools in the Princeton Public Schools district will have a snow day on Friday, Jan. 7. There will not be remote learning.
A winter weather advisory is in effect from 10 p.m. Thursday through 10 a.m. on Friday. Snowfall of three to five inches is predicted for the Princeton region. Driving conditions are expected to be hazardous on Friday morning.
According to the National Weather Service in Mount Holly, a narrow band of heavy snow could result in a brief period of snowfall rates up to two inches per hour late overnight in some areas, and higher snow totals in some locations.
Monday will be an early dismissal day at all six schools as previously planned. “Our staff will participate in professional development Monday afternoon,” Superintendent Carol Kelley wrote in an email to parents Thursday afternoon. “At this time, we anticipate that all schools will be in-person on Monday, including Princeton High School. The YMCA after-school programs at our elementary schools will be operating on Monday. The Pannell Center, however, will be closed Monday.”
