Twp. Schools Open Monday With Alternate Plan

Only two buildings with power as of 5 p.m. Friday.

After a two-week lay-off due to the impact from Hurricane Sandy, Washington Township Schools administrators have decided to open the district on Monday, Nov. 12.

In the Honeywell instant alert issued by the school, Superintendent Jeff Mohre said:

As of 12:30 this afternoon, we now have two schools with power, Benedict A. Cucinella and Flocktown-Kossmann. As a result of the power restoration to two schools and the improving road conditions here in the township, we are able to re-open school on Monday, November 12 for all students.  

The Leadership Team has developed Alternative School Re-Opening Plans, inclusive of full-days and/or abbreviated sessions, in the event power is not restored to all schools this weekend. We will continue our ongoing assessment of conditions here in our community in collaboration with the Washington Township Police Department.

By tomorrow afternoon, we will share with you via Honeywell and the district web site, the plan most compatible to our school district’s energy situation. Once again our plan is for all students to return to school on Monday, November 12. 

At 5 p.m. Friday, some 2,096 residences, businesses and buildings were still in the dark with multiple utility crews working in the township.

Check back with Long Valley Patch Saturday for more information on the Alternative School Re-Opening Plan.

Still more than 25% of the residences and 50% of our schools without power as well as multiple road closures after 11 full days. Nice 7-10 day estimate JCP&L, you suck.

Didn't Flocktown Kossman school already have power? So they only got one school up? Where are the 1200 workers that were sent this way? Doesn't seem right.
