Weather Alert  

LIGHT SNOW AND SPOTTY LIGHT FREEZING RAIN POSSIBLE THIS EVENING As temperatures slowly rise this evening, light snow should quickly change over to rain across Long Island, New York City and the suburbs just north and west, and across coastal and southeastern Connecticut, with at least a coating of accumulation, and as much as an inch farther away from the coast. As precipitation mixes with and changes to rain, road temperatures in these areas may still be below freezing even as air temperatures slowly rise to the mid and upper 30s, and a light glaze of ice may be possible on untreated surfaces. So plan on slippery conditions this evening even as temperatures slowly rise.

HUNTINGTON, Long Island: West Hills Day Camp website states that "with sincere regret that we inform you that the 2020 enrollment numbers for West Hills Day Camp have gotten to the place where it will not be viable for us to open this summer as we had fully intended to do.  Any deposits and payments received for Summer 2020 will be returned in full immediately.

In 1954 Edward Gersh opened West Hills Day Camp to provide the children of Long Island a day camp experience filled with fun, adventure, and skill development. He created a premier camp, and over the years, thousands of campers have shared in this unique experience.

Kevin Gersh, who tookover in 2014 when his father Edward passed, says "This decision has been one of the hardest I have faced in my professional life. The West Hills campus will continue to provide educational and support services to individuals with autism. I hope one day to be able to re-open a camp on these grounds that will offer both typical learners and those with neurobiological differences the kind of summer experience they deserve, and we can all be proud of."
