Landon on Late Closure Call: ‘My Crystal Ball Was Wrong’

Westport Schools Superintendent Elliott Landon tonight told the Board of Education he was “disappointed” with his late school closure call during Monday’s snowstorm and promised, “we’ll make sure it doesn’t happen again.”

While all other Fairfield County school districts had announced closures by 5:30 a.m. Monday in the face of what was an accurate prediction of 6 to 8 inches of snow, Landon did not announce Westport’s closure until 6:45 a.m.

By that time, some teachers had arrived at Staples High School or were on their way and some students were already on school buses or waiting at bus stops. The head of the teachers’ union said the late decision put teachers and students in danger.

“Nobody could be more disappointed than I in the fact that we—I made the announcement late,” said Landon, who later refused to discuss his decision with local media, at the outset of tonight’s meeting. “But there were extenuating circumstances, one of which for those of my loyal followers who think I overslept. I did not.”
