Greenwich schools to close for presidential primaries
Concerns from parents have prompted school officials in Greenwich to cancel classes for the presidential primaries on Feb. 5.
School officials say parents were concerned for their children?s safety and security while voters were in the buildings. The district will reportedly use one of its snow days to make up for it.
Meanwhile, other districts in southwestern Connecticut will remain open on Super Tuesday with extra security.
?Each school will set aside parking space[s] for the voters near the polling place so that voters will have access to the voting booths that they need,? Sarah Arnold, of the Stamford Public Schools, says. ?We?re gonna have a police officer stationed at each of the schools so that any security concerns will be addressed.?
Stratford and Norwalk schools will also be open for the primaries.
