Although New York City's public schools are still open, some area schools are already closing in advance of Hurricane Sandy.

The city's transit systems will be shut down at 7 PM tonight, bringing about a strong likelihood that NYC public schools will close for Hurricane Sandy.

Below is a list of schools which have already closed:

Bergen Ctr. For Child Development CLOSED

Bradley Beach Elementary CLOSED


Colts Neck Schools CLOSED


Deal School District CLOSED

Dover School District CANCELED


Henry Hudson Regional School CLOSED


Marlboro Township Public Schools CANCELED

Monmouth University CANCELED


Spring Lakes Heights School Dist. CLOSED

St. Anthony HS Jersey City HIGH SCHOOL CLOSED

St. Dominic School CLOSED

Mayor Bloomberg has historically been very hesitant to close down city schools due to the hardship that it presents to parents and, by extension, to local businesses. In the winter of 2010, however, Bloomberg was heavily criticized for failing to close schools on the day after the Dec. 26 snowstorm that paralyzed the city while street-cleaning crews were left strandred.

AllMediaNY will keep you posted on any further developments.

UPDATE: Mayor Bloomberg announced on Sunday morning that all NYC public schools will be closed on Monday, October 29, 2012.

Comment: Our mayor is an idiot, simply put. If mass transit is being closed down, and many parents are not going into work, what "hardship" is he putting on anyone? The hardship this fool doesn't see is putting children outside in harms way during a potentially dangerous storm. He has no sense whatsoever when it comes to this. Parents do, and our children should NOT be charged with and absence mark if we keep them home in what could only be called COMMON SENSE. Not to mention the fact that many teachers do not live close to the schools they work at. Should they be on the roads during a dangerous time as well. Sorry for the language, but he's an asshole and this city can't wait to be rid of him and his self imposed and illegal third term. Money can't buy everything as proved by his lack of a brain.

Comment: I totally agree he waits till the last minute to close schools. Also many kids take mass transmet to schools so why close that and not close schools?
