Chatham Schools Delayed in Storm's Aftermath

Township mayor says crews will remove snow from 'critical intersections' over the next two weeks.

Chatham Schools will have a two-hour delayed opening on Friday and morning kindergarten and pre-kindergarten have been canceled.

About a foot of snow closed schools and municipal offices on Thursday as travel conditions were treacherous in the area.

Chatham Township Mayor Kevin Sullivan urged residents to stay off the roadways until the streets have been completely cleared. Sullivan praised John Pacelli and the Department of Public Works for their preparation and work during the storm.

“Over the next two weeks, the staff will work on removing snow from critical intersections to improve ‘line of sight’ for drivers," Sullivan said. "We understand that snow removal efforts have been difficult on some residents, particularly at the end of driveways.

"I encourage residents to work together and help their fellow neighbors whenever possible in clearing snow and to make a point to clear all fire hydrants so that our fire departments have easy access in the case of any emergency."
