  1. I am a little confused about this posting. to the best of my knowledge, MOST Lakewood schools are open today. I would guess that probably 99% or more are open. Perhaps the public schools are closed but they are by far the minority.

    In my day, many schools did not have limudei chol on a legal holiday. In Lakewood however today is no different than any other day except for garbage pickup and mail.

  2. to #5 – are you saying that the majority of Lakewood schools were closed today?? And #4 says that I am not part of the real world.

    In Lakewood the majority of schools were open today. That is the REAL truth!! Whether you agree or disagree with the policy, the real world is based on facts.

    Why was this posted as Lakewood news when it is not true in lakewood?

  3. I apologize. The moderator obviously changed the original post to say that PUBLICschools are closed today. That is not what is said when I posted my original question.

  4. It states “Most public schools, universities and banks are also closed. There will be no U.S. Postal ”
    so why should that not be posted for Lakewood?
