Winter storm closes some North Country schools | WWTI


WATERTOWN, NY (WWTI) – Although travel advisories and winter weather alerts remain active in the North Country, few schools closed on Tuesday.

It’s like most schools came back from a spring break the week before.

As of 8 a.m., the only districts that had closed for the day were Lowville Academy and the Central School District, River Valley Mennonite School and Town of Webb Union Free School District in Old Forge.

However, several districts have delayed their start time by two hours for students and staff. This included Belleville-Henderson Central School District, Copenhagen Central School District, South Lewis Central School District, and Sandy Creek Central School District.

This winter storm hit the region on the evening of Monday, April 18. It is expected to bring up to a foot of snow to Lewis County and several inches to Jefferson and St. Lawrence County.

A travel advisory was also issued in Lewis County on Tuesday morning. Winter storm warnings will remain active in Lewis and southeastern St. Lawrence counties until 8 p.m., along with winter weather advisories in Jefferson and the rest of St. Lawrence counties.

Check back with ABC50 throughout the day for further closures and delays.
