The Super Bowl's barely begun, and several school districts are already closed Monday

February 1, 2015 by Mark H. Anbinder

A winter storm warning means it may be slow going on the way home from your Super Bowl party tonight, but the expected snowfall, with 8-12 inches forecast for Central New York through Monday afternoon, has already prompted several area school districts to close tomorrow.

Update Monday morning: Ithaca City School District has joined the list of schools closed for the day on February 2nd.

Meteorologist Drew Montreuil at Finger Lakes Weather says light snow through the evening is likely to turn to heavy snow "after midnight Sunday, with 1-2" per-hour snow rates continuing well into Monday morning." Montreuil has the Finger Lakes right in the middle of a band he's predicting will get 10-14 inches of snow through Monday.

As of Sunday evening, the following school districts have announced they'll be closed on Monday:

  • Lansing Central School District
  • Dryden Central School District
  • Trumansburg Central School District
  • Newfield Central School District
  • Groton Central School District (Jr/Sr High for conferences)
  • Namaste Montessori School
  • Watkins Glen Central School District
  • Odessa Montour Central School District
  • Elmira City School District
  • Geneva City School District

Syracuse City School District is opening on a two-hour delay. Staff should report on a one-hour delay.

Ithaca City School District superintendent Luvelle Brown says he and his staff will evaluate road conditions at 5am Monday, and make a decision at that time.
