Ridgefield Public Schools Announce 3 Hour Delay on Thursday, May 17

Ridgefield Public Schools have announced that tomorrow, Thursday, May 17, schools will operate on a three hour delayed opening to provide more adequate time for our road crews and Eversource to clear roads and make sure conditions are safe.

"Yesterday’s storm left roads impassable, power outages, and trees and live wires on roads. Our primary concern is the safety of our students and staff. While the conditions have improved today we are still concerned with the safety of our students Thursday morning," the District explains.

Ridgefield Public Schools will review all conditions again Thursday morning at 8:00 am. "If conditions have not improved that allows for the safety of our students to attend school we may need to make further decisions to cancel school," they say.

A message will be sent to all parents and staff by 8:30 am on Thursday.
