NEW YORK (WABC)—— New York City switches classes to remote learning and closes buildings Tuesday due to winter storm
A winter storm warning was issued for New York City, Long Island and much of the tri-state area, with rain and snow expected.
New York City Mayor Eric Adams said: “With several inches of snow, poor road visibility and the potential for coastal flooding, New Yorkers should prepare and take steps ahead of (Tuesday’s) storm. Necessary precautions are taken to ensure safety,” a statement said. “If you don’t have to be on the road (Tuesday), please stay home.”
All Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of New York will be closed on Tuesday. The day will be a “traditional snow day” with no remote instruction. This includes Catholic schools in New York City and upper suburban counties.
Archdiocesan high schools operate independently, so high school families need to follow the instructions of their respective schools.
Elsewhere, Yonkers Public Schools will be closed Tuesday and all after-school programs, including after-school child care, will be canceled.
