Snow Causes 2-Hour Delay at Local Schools; Highway Crews Out Since 3

Town highway superintendent says roads are slippery on Friday morning.

Schools in the Town of East Hampton are having a two-hour delayed opening on Friday morning due to the snowfall overnight.

Amagansett, East Hampton, Montauk, Springs and Wainscott school districts decided on the delayed openings after the area finally got the winter storm on Thursday evening that was initially expected to start on Wednesday.

There will be no morning pre-Kindergarten at the Montauk School. The Science Fair at the school is still on, though.

It was not immediately clear if the Ross School or CDCH was also having a two-hour delay.

East Hampton Town Highway Department crews were out salting at 3 a.m. on Friday, according to Superintendent Stephen Lynch, who said the area received 2 to 3 inches of snow.

Around 4:15 a.m., town workers began plowing to "slush off the roads to keep them safe," Lynch said. "Please tell people to drive with caution because roads are and will be slippery," he said.

I want to thank Steve Lynch and his crew for doing such a good job - they not only work hard they work smart. Other municipalities' snow removal programs fall well short of the excellent job EHT does. After the last big one (2/9) I went to Huntington to check on my mom. Brookhaven, Smithtown and Islip were horrendous, Southampton was better but East Hampton was very much on top of it. Last night (again!) I was on the highway at 10PM coming back from NYC. I was so glad to get to EH. Thanks Steve!!
