Lynbrook, East Rockaway announce school closures ahead of expected snowstorm


The Lynbrook and East Rockaway school districts announced Thursday that their buildings will be closed on Friday ahead of the expected winter storm. 

"Due to the impending weather forecast, the Lynbrook Schools will be closed tomorrow, Friday, Jan. 7," Lynbrook Superintendent Dr. Melissa Burak wrote  in a letter on the district's website. " I hope everyone stays safe."

In a letter on its website, East Rockaway school officials noted that the closure came due to the expected weather conditions and amid a staffing shortage due to the impact of Covid-19.

"This will be a regular snow day," the note read, "and no remote instruction will take place."
