Are the schools in New Rochelle Closed?
Michael Woyton (Editor) October 28, 2012 at 05:11 PM
As of 1:10 p.m. Sunday, there is no indication on the New Rochelle School District Web site that the schools will be closed. That could, of course, change.

It was just announced @Selena that the New Rochelle public schools and the district office will be closed Monday, Oct. 29. Whether to close on Tuesday will be announced midday Monday.
