Many Schools to be

Education ...

Delmar Only District
to Open on Thursday
  • School Closing Information
  • Even though the snow stopped four days ago, many school systems in Sussex County were still unable to open their doors on Friday, Feb. 21, 2003.

    After three days off from the aftermath of the Valentine's-President's Day weekend storms that dumped as much as 18 inches of snow on some areas of the county, four schools districts in the county had already thrown in the towel for the week by cancelling classes on Friday.

    School officials cited unplowed sidewalks and bus stops as reasons for not being able to get all students to school safely Friday.

    In addition, the Department of Education ruled that school systems will have the option of not making up the missed days this week. The department said the decision to make those days up will be left up to each individual school district.

    All school districts remained closed on Thursday, Feb. 20, except the Delmar School District, and by early Thursday afternoon, four districts had already announced that they would be closed on Friday, as well.

    Already announcing Friday closings were the Cape Henlopen School District, the Indian River School District, the Sussex Tech School District, and the Woodbridge School District.

    Closing by Friday morning were the Laurel and Seaford districts.
