School Hours and Closings

Hillsborough Township School District
Closing Times Information

Because weather and road conditions sometimes change significantly during the early morning hours on inclement days, we have devised a procedure for delaying school openings two hours after the normal opening times if road conditions improve, or closing schools for the entire day if conditions worsen. On days when school openings will be delayed, announcements will be made on radio, television and web sites, buses will pick up children approximately two hours after their normal pick-up times, and school will open according to the following schedule:
Look for the district home page announcement banner for notices on district-wide closings. Notification of delayed opening/early dismissals or closing may be announced in the following ways as well:
- Website
- Email/Phone call via School Messenger
- TV/Cable: Channel 27, News 12 NJ, Fox 5/WNYW, WABC/Channel 7
- Radio Stations: 94.5 WPST, 1450 WCTC/WMGQ

For the safety and security of all students and staff members, it is imperative that all students have a plan for how to get home in the event of an early dismissal from school since buildings will be closing shortly after dismissal time.
