Wyckoff, Franklin Lakes Schools on Delayed Opening

Read more for info on the delayed openings.

Snow was falling across much of the Tri-State area early Wednesday and many Bergen County schools are observing delayed openings to allow municipal crews to plow and salt roads.

Both Wyckoff and Franklin Lakes schools are pushing back the start of classes.

In Wyckoff, all schools would be pushed back 90 minutes later than usual, with schools opening 15 minutes prior to those start times. Eisenhower will start at 9:30 a.m. and the elementary schools would begin at 10:10 a.m.

In Franklin Lakes, Franklin Avenue Middle School would open at 9:35 a.m., and the other K-8 schools would open at 10:20 a.m., with all zero period classes being canceled. 

Ramapo and Indian Hills high schools are also on 90-minute delays.
