PUTNAM COUNTY, N.Y. -- School districts in Mahopac, Carmel and Putnam Valley will both be closed on Wednesday because of the expected arrival of snow, school officials announced.
Putnam is forecasted to receive three to seven inches of snow on Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service, which predicts two to four additional inches that night.
The decision effectively gives Mahopac, Carmel and Putnam Valley students a longer Thanksgiving break, as they are already getting Thursday and Friday off.
Meanwhile, Brewster and Haldane schools are already scheduled to have Wednesday off as part of Thanksgiving recess. However, Haldane announced that out-of-district transportation is cancelled.
