Pelham schools close Tuesday because of nor’easter; county declares state of emergency


The Pelham school district announced a snow day for Tuesday as a potentially powerful nor’easter approached the region, while Westchester County declared a state of emergency beginning at 10 p.m. Monday.

The Pelham Union Free School District said Monday in an email, “While there seems to be some variability in the amount of snow predicted to be received here in Pelham, it is highly likely that there will be dangerous conditions through the morning commute.”

According to an emailed announcement from the county on the local state of emergency, “The impending storm is expected to bring heavy snowfall, creating hazardous conditions that may lead to downed trees, road closures, travel disruptions, power outages and potential damage to public and private property throughout the county.”

The Village of Pelham Manor said it will collect garbage as usual on Tuesday, while the Village of Pelham said Area B trash and commercial cardboard collection will be postponed to Wednesday and all refuse must be put at curbside no later than 7 a.m.

Pelham Manor also said department of public works crews were notified to report to work early to deal with snow or ice on the roads.
