JTS follows the New York City public school system when deciding to close in inclement weather. If the New York City public schools are closed due to weather, JTS will be closed.
There may be a rare occurrence when we decide to close because of a severe storm or other emergency, even though the city schools remain open. Additionally, there may be times when the New York City schools are already closed; for example, during holidays. In order to make this information available to you during such occurrences, JTS maintains a phone line that will play a recorded message from 6:00 a.m. on in the event of a closing. That number is (212) 678-8898. Should you get a repeated busy signal due to a heavy volume of calls, you may also phone the Security desk at (212) 678-8087.
In the event that JTS closes due to inclement weather, an announcement to that effect will appear on the homepage of the JTS website, at http://www.jtsa.edu/.
You may also tune in to WCBS at 880AM. WCBS will broadcast school closings including JTS weather-related closings. WCBS announces closings in our area at thirty-five minutes past the hour. WCBS begins broadcasting school closings at 5:00 a.m. and ends at 7:00 a.m.
