Paterson public schools remain closed Wednesday for unsafe flooding conditions

All Paterson public schools will be closed on Wednesday due to the ongoing flooding conditions in the city.
Officials initially announced that schools would be opened with a 90-minute delay. But school officials said that the heavy rain on Monday is still making it a safety issue for students and staff to travel around the city.
All after-school programs will also be canceled for Wednesday.
The district is expected to reopen on Thursday.
