Impending Snow Cancels Garbage Pickup, Schools Ready Plan
With eight to 12 inches of snow on the way, Verona is canceling garbage and recycling pickups for Thursday, February 13. Do not put your garbage cans out tonight. The town also won’t let anybody park on the street overnight. Use the lot behind Terry’s if you need to.
The Verona public schools’ plan to deal with the snow may also be changing. Verona had only budgeted for four snow days, but we have already used five. Last week, Superintendent Steven A. Forte announced that Verona would turn February 14 and 17 into half days instead of vacation days, giving us a fifth and sixth snow day to use.
But Forte told the Board of Education meeting last night that the schools may need to change even that plan. He said that, if Verona needs to cancel school on Thursday and have a delayed open on Friday, we would need to make Friday a full day because we can’t have a delayed opening on a half day. If that happens, there would be lunch service and the YMCA would have aftercare.
“It’s not just about Spring break,” Forte said. “It’s about giving us our best possible day of school. A Thursday in Spring Break or coming in on a Saturday is not going to be as conducive to good school.” He noted that some districts have taken away the President’s Day holiday on Monday, but said that Verona can’t because of contracts.
So listen for the Global Connect call tonight, and don’t put your garbage out.
