Greenwich schools have early dismissal due to impending snow

Due to the impending snowstorm, all schools will close early today, Tuesday, Feb. 23.

All after school and evening activities are canceled. Schools are following the regular early dismissal schedule, a two-hour early release.

The Superintendent and area Districts are erring on the side of caution due to the unpredictability of the weather pattern forecasted.

A Winter Weather Advisory and Hazardous Weather Outlook is in effect from 1 p.m. today until 9 a.m. tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 24, for southern Connecticut, the National Weather Service said.

A winter weather advisory means that periods of snow, sleet, or freezing rain will cause travel difficulties. Drivers should be prepared for slippery roads and limited visibilities and use caution while driving.

Snow accumulations of up to one inch and up to a tenth of an inch of ice are possible. Light snow will develop this afternoon, mix with and change to sleet and freezing rain tonight and plain rain Wednesday morning, the weather service said.

Roads, especially elevated and untreated surfaces, will become slippery, making travel hazardous. This wintry mix will impact the Tuesday evening and Wednesday morning commutes, the weather service said.
