 DELAYED OPENING AND EMERGENCY CLOSING OF SCHOOLS
 
The following is the procedure for a 90 minute (1 ½ hour) delayed opening or emergency closing of the West Milford Township Public Schools. When possible, a decision will be made before 6:00 a.m. as to the opening of schools. If a 90 minute (1 ½ hour) delayed opening or a school closing is called please note the following important information: 
 
  1. A Honeywell Instant Alert message will be sent out to inform parents of school delay/cancellation.  You are encouraged to register for this service and keep it up-dated
  2. The District delayed opening/school closing information line is 973-208-2860. 
  3. School cancellation information is also available at www.wmtps.org
  4. A siren will sound at 6:00 a.m. indicating a 90 minute (1 ½ hour) delayed opening of school is in progress. 
  5. If weather conditions do not improve and a closing of schools is called, steps 1- 4 will be repeated and the sounding of a second siren at 8:00 a.m. will indicate schools will be closed.
