Ramapo and Indian Hills high schools have decided to close early Friday ahead of a winter storm that could bring more than a foot of snow to the area.
The decision was made by school administrators late Friday.
"Based on the most recent weather forecasts for Friday, Feb. 8, we will be having an early dismissal tomorrow," according to a message posted on the school district's website. "All students and staff will follow a minimum day schedule. Dismissal will be at 11:51 a.m.
"Due to the anticipated changing weather conditions over night, we will be reevaluating our early dismissal decision tomorrow morning at 5:00 a.m. If it is necessary to change our decision, we will notify you in the morning."
The Wyckoff Public K-8 School District also decided to dismiss students early Friday in a message posted Thursday evening.
