Snow Holiday For Students, Headache For Superintendents

Snow closings could take away from holiday breaks for students.

It's only the middle of winter and some public schools in Westchester County have already used up all their snow days for the season.

With more snow in the forecast, the lack of available snow days could impact Regents examinations, which are set to take place this week.

White Plains Schools Superintendent Christopher Clouet said his school district will chip away at Easter and Passover break if it needs to close again due to snowy weather. Clouet said it's not an ideal situation, but White Plains only has three state-funded snow days per year.

Paul Costiglio, with New Rochelle public schools, said he doesn't want to see another snow day. However, he also said the safety of students is what's most important.
