The Verona Public Schools will be closed today Friday, November 16, 2018. Current weather and road conditions have made this decision necessary. The closing of our schools includes the cancellation of all athletics, school activities, and non-district events held in our schools until 3pm today. As of right now, the VHS Fall Play will take place at 7:30 pm tonight.

Our Township and District staff has been working to maintain safe roadways, pedestrian routes, and school facilities. Due to the nature of the storm, additional time and efforts are necessary to ensure the safety of students and staff. School and Township personnel will take additional necessary measures over the next hours with snow removal from street corners, crosswalks, sidewalks, school drop off areas, parking lots, and roads to prepare our schools and community for regular operation.

We are appreciative of the efforts of our District and Township personnel who are working to get us back up and running as soon as possible. Thank you for your continued support and cooperation. Please be safe.


Dr. Rui Dionisio
Superintendent of Schools”
