Unfortunately, it's not an exact science. We were notified last night that gc may either be delayed or closed today. Then this am, at 5:1, the call came in as a two hour delay with the possibility that the decision could change as soon as they knew. All was dependent on whether the buses could travel safely. Oh well. At least our kids are safe.

FYI to Patch: You should really list Valley Stream Schools too. A good part of Malverne residents are in the VS district 13 and HS district 1. Please add that to you coverage.
