Schools in Session Thursday, Friday in Township

K-8 district would open doors during originally scheduled NJEA Convention days.

Due to the loss of an entire week of classes because of Hurricane Sandy's impact, Washington Township Schools has decided to hold class Thursday and Friday, Nov. 8 and 9.

Schools were originally scheduled to be closed on those days for the New Jersey Education Association's annual convention in Atlantic City, but the event was canceled due to the destruction in the shore town caused by the storm.

Superintendent Jeff Mohre, in conjunction with Teacher's Association President Patti Ressland, has decided to hold classes on those days–if the school buildings are with power and able to operate.

The school district began the 2012-13 calendar year with four allotted inclement weather days. In the past week alone, five were used, with no knowledge of what the start of the coming week would hold. 

As of Saturday night, no decision regarding the school days had been made by the West Morris Regional High School District.
