According to Steve Forte, the superintendent of Verona’s public schools, attendance on Tuesday was only 86%, down from the normal 96%. Forte said at Tuesday night’s Board of Education meeting that 93.5% of the staff came to work through the snow storm, some with delays.

Forte said that the process to decided whether or not to hold school began about 4:30 a.m., well before the snow started to fall, as conversations between Essex County school superintendents and town police departments. Most Essex County district did have their schools open on Tuesday; only Millburn and Livingston were closed.
