School Closing/Delayed Opening Information

When weather conditions prevent us from opening schools at the regular time, the following procedure will be put into effect:

  1. Announcement of our schools’ closing, two-hour delayed opening, or early dismissal will be made through the One Call Now automated calling system and posted on our website: www.mahwah.k12.nj.us.  It will also appear on NBC Channel 4 News, ABC Channel 7 News and News 12. See schedule above for school times.
  2. In the event you missed the One Call Now message or it was not delivered properly, you can call 1-877-698-3261 to retrieve the message.
  3. Residents may also call the schools for a prerecorded message.
  4. On a delayed opening day:
  • Bused students should report to their assigned stop two hours later than usual.
  • Zero period at Mahwah High School is canceled on delayed opening days.  Also, the late bus at Mahwah High School is canceled on a high school single session day.
  • On a delayed opening day, all schools will serve a cafeteria lunch. (Menu may change on such days.)
  • On delayed opening days, there will be no morning preschool classes, afternoon preschool students will attend at their normal time.
  • On single session days, morning preschool classes will attend at their normal time, there will be no afternoon preschool class
  • PLEASE DO NOT CALL THE LOCAL POLICE.
