All public and Catholic schools in Philadelphia will open on a two-hour delay Thursday morning after remaining closed during a nor'easter that brought a steady wet snow on Wednesday.
Morning pickup times will also be pushed back two hours, the School District of Philadelphia said in a press release.
"We ask that parents and caregivers be patient as certain yellow bus routes may experience moderate to significant delays Thursday morning," the School District of Philadelphia said in a press release.
The Archdiocese of Philadelphia initially said it would open on a normal schedule Thursday, but because Catholic schools typically operate on schedules corresponding with the local public school district, the Archdiocese will also start school two hours late.
