Absenteeism Spiked In Snow Storm
While 11 cars were sliding into each other when the snow storm hit on Tuesday morning, some parents were apparently opting to forego the trip to school altogether.
According to Steve Forte, the superintendent of Verona’s public schools, attendance on Tuesday was only 86%, down from the normal 96%. Forte said at Tuesday night’s Board of Education meeting that 93.5% of the staff came to work through the snow storm, some with delays.
Forte said that the process to decided whether or not to hold school began about 4:30 a.m., well before the snow started to fall, as conversations between Essex County school superintendents and town police departments. Most Essex County district did have their schools open on Tuesday; only Millburn and Livingston were closed.
