PATERSON, NJ - Due to the continued inclement weather and extremely cold temperatures Paterson Public Schools have cancelled all after school activities for Wednesday.

“Our student’s safety must be our top priority” the statement said announcing that schools will also have a delayed opening on Thursday because the cold could put children at risk of frostbite and other cold-related injuries.

Buses will arrive 90 minutes after normal pick-up times. Staff should report to school tomorrow at 9:40 a.m. and students at 9:45 a.m.

All other Central Office staff should arrive as close to normal work hours as possible.  Breakfast will be served at the schools beginning at 9:45 am.
