Schools Create Alternate Plan for Monday Classes

Bus routes to be impacted, students from Old Farmers to attend Kossmann facility.

Washington Township Schools administrators have devised a plan to get all students in town to class Monday morning, despite only three of the facilities operating as of 5 p.m. Saturday.

Long Valley Middle School, Benedict A. Cucinella School, and Flocktown-Kossmann School are all currently fully operating, while 1,497 residences remain in the dark midway through the weekend.

"As noted (Friday), we plan to have all children attend school on Monday, November 12," Schools Superintendent Jeff Mohre said via the Honeywell alert issued Saturday afternoon. "If power conditions improve further during the weekend, we will alter our plans accordingly and inform everyone immediately."

The contingency plan issued by the district Saturday excludes Old Farmers Road School, as it is still without electricity. Students attending Old Farmers Road School will instead attend class at the Kossman building. This is also where before and after care programs will be held for those students.

Kossmann students will attend class at the Flocktown building, where all five grades (K-5) will be housed. 

In the document explaining the plan, Mohre asks that all students and parents be to their bus stops for pick-up and drop-off 10 to 15 minutes early.

Because of Hurricane Sandy's impact, the district's schools were closed for two full weeks. The school calendar allotted four inclement weather days, but because of the lack of electricity, 10 have been used.

An earlier version of this story inaccurately stated there would be no after-school activities at any of the schools.

It seems that all the power trucks are currently in our driveway. We were told that the main line on West Valleybrook isn't "hot" yet but maybe tonight.

Sorry to hear that, Tracy. Good luck! At least they've removed the big trees, one bad section of lines left to tackle. Turtleback is supposedly fixed - no more wires down - but they are waiting for some reason to turn on the power. Permission? I don't know.
