Snow Closing Policy 

Now that winter is upon us, please note our Snow Closing policy: 

  • If the Needham Public Schools close on a Monday or Thursday morning due to weather, then Mercaz Aliyah will close automatically and there will be no bus service.

  • If the Needham Public Schools decide to close early, during the day due to inclement weather, then, Mercaz Aliyah will close automatically, and there will not be any bus service. 

  • Announcements of closings can be found on the Temple Aliyah website and on TV stations WBZ, WHDH, WCVB, WFXT and their websites.

We will send notification to the email you provided to us and we will make every attempt to contact parents by phone to notify you of the closing.  If you are in doubt, you can call Temple Aliyah directly 781-444-8522.

The following is the Mercaz Aliyah policy regarding closing due to inclement weather on Sundays.

If school is cancelled on Sunday, often the decision is made Saturday night after Shabbat. Sometimes, if the weather is unpredictable, the decision is not made until early on Sunday morning. The Temple Aliyah website will have the most up to date information regarding Temple Aliyah closings. You can also check TV stations WBZ, WHDH, WCVB, WFXT and their websites.

Please understand that we make decisions regarding closings based not  just on the weather conditions in Needham but on the distance, road conditions as well as weather conditions teachers will encounter on their way to Temple Aliyah.

WBZ, WHDH, WCVB and WFXT offer an option on their websites where you can sign up to have a text sent to you directly to notify you of Mercaz Aliyah closings.
