SPOTSWOOD, NJ - The Spotswood School District is asking parents and guardians to be prepared for two possible scenarios for Wednesday, March 7 via email and telephone blasts. The issue at hand is the timing of the incoming storm.

The two scenarios Acting Superintendent Graham Peabody detailed in an email blast involve closing school on Wednesday if the snow arrives earlier than anticipated with heavier accumulations. If that occurs, the decision to close will be made before or shortly after 5 a.m. on March 7.

The other possible scenario involves an early dismissal if the snow arrives as the current forecast predicts in the afternoon. In this instance, the schools would have an early dismissal/half day with all after school activities and CARES being canceled.

Early dismissal times are as follows for the Spotswood School District:

  • Spotswood High School 11:56 a.m.
  • Memorial Middle School 11:55 a.m.
  • Appleby School 12:20 p.m
  • Schoenly School 12:20 p.m. for preschool and 12:35 p.m. for kindergarten and first grade
