Bronxville Schools to Extend the First Quarter of the School Year

Bronxville Schools Superintendent David Quattrone has announced that the first quarter of the school year will be extended by two weeks to account for time lost during last week's storm.


After what was an unprecedented week off from school due to one of the worst storm in our area's history, students and teachers in Bronxville are getting back to business and will be playing catch-up due to time lost in the classroom.

Bronxville resumed the earliest out of the three districts in our area with a 10 a.m. start time on Friday Nov. 2 and Superintendent David Quattrone thanked the faculty and staff for their efforts to get to school and expressed concern about the Bronxville community as a whole.

"As you know, the Village as a whole is still largely without electricity, and the weather is getting colder," stated Quattrone, "these circumstances were a major factor in deciding to have school today and providing our students with a warm environment, a hot meal, and constructive activity is a good thing."
