How Weather Can Affect Road Conditions Differently from Town to Town

from Dr. Michael Morris:

Dear ARPS Families and Staff:
As you may be aware, the road conditions across the four towns that comprise ARPS are often quite different.  Today has been a good example of a time when the driving conditions vary significantly across our towns.

This note is just a reminder that our elementary and secondary districts may not always share the same weather-related delays.  For instance, it is possible that the Middle School/High School/Summit Academy may have a two-hour delay on the same day that no delay occurs for the elementary schools in Amherst and Pelham.  

News channels may have a difficult time reporting this type of situation.  Clear information on weather-related delays is always updated at our cancellation line at 413-362-1898 and on our website at
