Public Schools

When weather conditions prevent us from opening schools at the regular time, the following procedure will be put in effect:


Announcement of the closing or two hour delayed opening will be made through the One Call Now automated calling system and the Mahwah Township Public Schools website. In the event you missed the One Call Now message or it was not delivered properly, you can call 1-877-698-3261 to retrieve the message. Residents may also call the schools for a prerecorded message. Please do not call the local police.

Reporting Times & Lunches

On a delayed opening day, bused students should report to their assigned stop two hours later than usual except morning preschoolers report one hour and fifty minutes later and afternoon kindergarteners report one hour later. School will notify afternoon preschoolers of bus time. On a delayed opening day, all schools will serve a cafeteria luncheon. (Menu may change on such days.)
