    Even though virtually every system in Essex county has announced closing, Montclair has not.
    It is the stated policy of Montclair Schools to post closings on its website by 6 am day of a closing (not the evening before, irrespective of conditions). The reason for this policy is that..Montclair’s stated policy is to post closings on its website by 6 am the day of closing, not the evening before. Why does Montclair do it this way? It’s the policy of Montclair’s Schools to post closing on the website by 6 am the day of the closing. But why not the night before, if everyone else sometimes does it that way. It’s the policy. But why? It’s the policy. What’s the reason for it. The reason is it is the policy….
