All East Hampton schools will start classes later than usual as students head back to school on Thursday morning. 

East Hampton School District Superintendent Rich Burns said in the interest of safety, there will be a two-hour delay. Icy roads and frigid temperatures are expected in the morning. 

Schools were closed on Wednesday due to the snow storm overnight. 

"A lot of people don't realize that Montauk kids get on the bus a little before 6," to head to East Hampton High School," Burns said. 

All sending districts are following suit, he said. 

Also, the Ross School will also have a two-hour delay, according to its website. 

Amagansett and Montauk School District representatives confirmed the two-hour delay. Montauk School District's pre-kindergarten starts at 10:30 a.m. 

Sag Harbor School District will have a two-hour delay, as well, and there will be no morning pre-kindergarten, according to the district website.

Maybe the town can sand the roads. Haven't seen any sand on Hands Creek or 3 Mile Harbor Road this storm or last. Odd.

Correction: Mtk kids get on the bus a little before 7. Not 6

To todd: I agree with you 100%-MAYBE Steve Lynch, Highway Dept. would like to know that MONTAUK didn't see any sand until 7PM Wed. I always sang praises of the great prevention of iced roads by sand and salt and removal-for the past 2 storms I' m appalled - but I did see 6 sanders filled to the rim while driving home the other day, however, none of them were dispensing sand! What gives?

Side roads in Springs are horrendous as well as Three Mile Harbor Road. Salt, sand, something! This snow is not going anywhere fast!

On Tues 1/21 the Montauk Highway Department began work at 7 am . They began salting every road at 2pm. Then plowed every road until 11pm, every road was plowed twice . They broke until 3am to sleep. At 3am on Wed morning they began plowing until 2 pm, with no break at all. They began salting every road with a sand/salt mix until 5:30 pm. Thursday 1/23 they began at 7am salting some hills with sand/salt mix . At 9 am they salted almost every road. At 12pm they plowed ALL roads that were salted and there were clear down to the asphalt . The men , a crew of "6" plowed from West of the over look to Camp Hero. I think that's pretty impressive .

Great if you live in Montauk but not so wonderful if you love in the more densely populated areas of town. My street received its first sand today. Historically my civility sanded after the initial plowing rather than several days later.

No Dyanna is completely wrong - and I live in Montauk off a main street. Late plowing and even much later sanding! And yes in the past my street and the main street were plowed sooner and salted rather than several days later.
