New Jersey districts are calling for school closures, delayed openings and other schedule changes for Monday due to a major winter storm expected to bring up to two feet of snow to a significant portion of the state.

While hundreds of districts continue to offer fully-remote classes due to the coronavirus outbreak, schools operating under in-person and hybrid models may opt to switch to remote classes for the day rather than cancel school altogether.
