Hughes Tweeted earlier in the day that his car was completely snowed in and he was forced to walk home. He told students and parents to stay tuned, eluding to a potential Wednesday closure.
The National Weather Service is still predicting another foot of snow along with blowing and drifting snow between now and Wednesday night. The Mohawk-Ilion area has already received more than two-feet of snow from Snowstorm Stella as of 6 p.m. Tuesday. A half dozen other school districts have announced their closure for Wednesday, so far.
Central Valley Academy has now used one more snow day than was set aside for the 2016-17 school year. It's not known yet how the school day will be made up.
