Stratford Schools Closed Wednesday

Schools close for the third time this week as cleanup from the weekend blizzard continues.

Stratford public schools will be closed Wednesday, Feb. 13, as the town and residents continue to dig out of a blizzard that dropped upwards of three feet of snow Friday into Saturday.

This week's school closures, coupled with the week lost due to Hurricane Sandy, have prompted one Stratford parent to request that the Board of Education move winter break to this week or shorten it next week.

In a Facebook post this morning to the Stratford community, Mayor John A. Harkins stated public works had opened every roadway with at least one pass. But some residents rebuffed that claim, saying they were still snowed-in.

A public works update posted on the mayor's Facebook page this afternoon read: "Any road still not passable is prioritized and will be gotten to today. Thanks for your continued patience and feedback."

What is the plan for making up these days?

I hope the plan is to pardon them all since students are off next week.

Add them to the end of the school year. What other choice is there. After Friday April break was gone. So instead of ending on Friday June 21, they will end on Wednesday, June 26. As long as there are no other lost days.

At this point they either need to call this Feb break and send them back next week or pardon them, but either way a call needs to be made ASAP.

Both Trumbull and Milford are using feb break for school time. Why not Stratford?

Trumbull and Milford still have April break intact.

Honestly I don't care what he decision is. I just want a decision.
