Westport students have received word of an early dismissal announcement.

At 10:20 a.m. Connect-ed sent emails messages announcing that  Staples would be dismissing at 11:40 a.m. Other schools are dismissing as well, after the bus runs of Staples students.

Several other public schools in Fairfield Country previously issued early dismissals, such as the public school districts of Greenwich, Darien, Stamford, New Canaan, Weston, and Wilton.

“Our superintendent is Dr. Elliot Landon. He makes the decision. I am waiting for the phone call just like everyone else. He tries to decide by 10 a.m. to be fair, but he can make the decision when he wants. No matter what declaration he makes, he gets angry phone calls,” Principal John Dodig said.
