Due to inclement weather that struck a large portion of the East Coast with the largest snow totals not seen in decades, and hurricane-like winds, plenty of school closings are in effect for Monday, January 25. If schools haven’t already reported their school closings via phone calls to parents — and via the school’s website and social media accounts — the school closings are being reported in the media.
New Jersey-area school closings and delays for Monday, January 25, as reported by Asbury Park Press, are being updated with a full list of schools and school closings by district. The Essex County school closings and delayed openings for Monday, January 25, are also being reported by NJ– with plenty of school districts listed as closed for Monday. Some of the school closings aren’t total school closings, with certain listings noting which school closings are only partial closings — with afternoon classes scheduled for Monday.
In North Carolina, a long list of school closings and delays for Monday are being reported by WNCN — with Durham County schools among those that will be closed on Monday, January 25. The publication explains that Wake County joins the school closings list because of dangerous road conditions and no power in some schools. Other schools and universities may be operating on a delayed schedule, so check the list for updated information on Monday about school closings and delays.
“Wake County Public School System schools will be closed on Monday, January 25 due to road conditions, continued power outages for some schools and families and expected refreezing overnight. Athletic and extracurricular events are also canceled.”
In Tennessee, the Monday school closings are being reported by the Tennessean, with the publication explaining how the hazardous snow and ice conditions are still expected to bring hazardous driving conditions on Monday, and therefore a few of the Tennessee school districts have already announced their school closings list.
The school closings are affecting Baltimore County Public Schools, reports Patch, which means the school closing represents the second snow day for the school system after Friday’s school closings.
“Public schools and school offices are closed on Monday, Jan. 25, Baltimore County Public Schools announced Sunday afternoon. This is the second snow day for Baltimore County students related to the blizzard that hit over the weekend; school was also canceled on Friday, Jan. 22.”
Pennsylvania is another state being affected by school closings, as reported by Patch. From Bucks County and beyond, the publication is reporting a list of school closings thus far, but check back on Monday, January 25, to see if the list of school closings has expanded.
Bensalem Township School District – closed
West Chester – closed
Cabrini College – closed
Upper Darby School District – closed
North Penn School District – closed
Penn State Abington – closed

Some school closings in the Washington, D.C. area, as reported by WAMU, are already coming in for Monday, January 25 — along with Tuesday, January 26.
“Schools across the region have cancelled classes for Monday, and Fairfax County has even cancelled classes for Tuesday. That’s because the sidewalks around the schools have not been cleared, and school buses are buried under several feet of snow.”
According to WAMU, certain government offices are also expected to close on Monday.
Another good place to check for school closings and reactions is on social media. On Twitter, the school closings search provides plenty of updates.
No doubt, the school closings will make plenty of kids happy — and hopefully won’t cause a conundrum for parents whose jobs aren’t closed along with the school closings. Plenty of cities are still is digging from under the snow brought by the massive blizzard.
