Superintendents Urge Caution As School Resumes

Officials caution that hazardous conditions remain in the wake of last week's storm.

Editor's note: This letter to parents was drafted by the local superintendents regarding attendance and returning to class.

Dear Parents,

While opening school is a positive step forward it is important to note that we are still engaged in a very hazardous situation in our communities. Parents should continue to remind their children that all downed power lines are considered dangerous and, therefore, should never be touched. Additionally, old downed lines may become electrified as power is turned on in new areas. Once again, for displaced families or for parents who do not yet feel comfortable sending their children to school, we understand your concerns. No student will be penalized for not attending school. We recommend that all parents drive their children to school, have their children take the bus, or accompany their children if they are walking to and from school. Thank you for your continued vigilance, patience, and understanding.
