  1. Skanta chamurah meisorah! Please be diligent when driving. On Reb Volbe’s ZT”L bais hamuser there was a sign. ” Tov labed regah bchaim mlaved Chaim bregah”.

  2. i don’t know what lakewood knows that every other district doesn’t–for all the other districts to have delayed openings. i do not have children in school any longer but i do not know if i would put my child on a bus today

  3. If your not gonna delay then the plows should have been out much earlier. Spruce st school starts at 8:00 and they r just plowing it now. All buses I past this morning are covered with snow. Should have had a delay. Better safe then sorry,

  4. They cannot make a decision at 6 am. Not all schools start at 9:00 the public schools start as early as 7:30. That does not give teachers, or bus drivers who live out of town a chance to arrive on time.

  5. 2 bbuses out of 3 are delayed the bus company says 2 accidents already they dont understand why there is busing if Lakewood is not plowed. Great job once again Lakewood Township

  6. Doesn’t anyone connected with the Lakewood BOE care about the safety of the students that have to walk? The Middle School and High School have to be in class before 7:30, there are elementary students that have to be in by 8;00, they are out walking where sidewalks have not been shoveled, cars speeding by with snow flying off There is more to safety than busses. A 90 minute delay would have been the best decesion all around. No the other towns did not make a bad decesion, they made a wise one. They care!!

  7. Every other district had a delayed opening. Does the BOE not care about its employees who commute from other areas of the state? Their commute could have been dangerous since there was no delay and none of the roads were plowed.

  8. My children waited until 9:15 for 8:30 bus. I saw maybe 3 buses out of dozens come into the development. If you say there are buses they should show up! My office opened regular time in North Jersey and everyone was expected.. I understand if the buses run a little late but 45 minutes is no exuse

  9. No. 23 Mr. wondering I called this morning the superintendant office leaving a message because when my daughters left it was still snowing a lot. This is the only freak town that put kids and other people in risk.

  10. Well, a delayed opening a regular opening you have a right to keep your child off the bus. We as parents can drive our kids put them on the bus or keep them home. The BOE is not in charge you are. My child isn’t going to learn anything today that’s worth his/her life.

  11. Heres the deal. Gus has to make the decision at around 4 am which is very tough to project what the roads will look like 4 hrs forward. That being said lets be honest. He’s had an awful season. Delaying or canceling when it turned out he shouldn’t have & not delaying when it turned out he should have.

  12. Today I made the decision to double the amount of life insurance on my wife the lakewood school teacher. The weather she has to drive in (because of the Boe incompetence ) is crazy. I believe it will be a miracle if she lives through the winter . Thank you b o e for the stress and constant worry. Wake up before someone does not!!!

  13. ALL of my busses arrived to my school by 9:15 this morning. Thanks to all the drivers and support staff at the bus co and BOE for ensuring that every student had the opportunity to get to school safe and on time for a full day of learning. Car pool is a disaster on the congested roads of our town.

  14. Lakewood is absolutely ridiculous!
    In more ways then just bad calls on closings and delayed openings.
    The decision to close or delay is NOT made by just one person (Gus). It is a group decision, however the “group” that decides this has absolutely no concern for the public school students, teachers, bus drivers, or parents!
    What a shame and soon to be a tragedy!

  15. delayed openings are the best thing. Why take chances????the weather is awful, some teachers live out of town, bus drivers live out of town, a little consideration for the walkers. Why would any parent put there children on the roads that are not plowed and clear?I do not understand if every town around is waiting why must Lakewood not wait? People are scared of driving,isn’t NJ Ins high enough???wait, be safe, spring is coming. Delay when the roads r bad……

  16. The whole point of the 90 Min DELAY is to by you the time to see what the road conditions will be later in the AM ! if they clear up you go in to school …if not you CLOSE! you don’t have to guess at it …that is what it is for ..its a tool to use to assure the children and employees get to school safely !

  17. Lakewood should have had a delayed opening! At 6:00 am when many high school and middle school staff are driving to the roads were horrific. You couldn’t even see the lines in the road. Cars were skidding and sliding all over the place. Many student were waiting on the street for their bus to arrive in snow and hail. (Unfortunately many people don’t think it’s important to shovel their sidewalks ) We were fortunate that none of the cars that were sliding didn’t hit a child. Also 2 LHS staff members were in car accidents on their way to work. Was it worth it?
