Students at five schools in one New Jersey district were let out early Tuesday after officials became alarmed about heavy snow on school rooftops.
Sparta Superintendent Dennis Tobin said the roofs were being inspected on all five buildings and children would not return until they had been deemed safe.
"When we are assured that the roof structure is safe for our students to attend school we will reopen our school district," Tobin said.
In Berkeley Heights, N.J. on Tuesday, students in four classrooms at Columbia Middle School were relocated to another area after a portion of the roof buckled, officials said. No injuries were reported.
The heavy, unrelenting snow has caused a number of structural issues throughout the region in recent days.
In Teaneck, N.J. a solar panel roof at the William Cullen Bryant School came crashing down onto several parked cars Saturday night. No one was injured.
