4 Schools Without Power
Trees blocking access to Pines Lake Elementary and George Washington Middle School. All class parties and costume parties scheduled for Halloween have been cancelled.
Power is out at four Wayne schools, authorities said Tuesday night.
Police Chief John Reardon did not know what schools were without power, but said that access to Pines Lake Elementary School and George Washington Middle School was blocked due to fallen trees. He said crews are working on removing the trees.
Board of Education President Donald Pavlak Jr. said officials are taking it “one day at a time” regarding when schools will reopen.
“Safety is paramount and our first priority,” said Pavlak.
All class parties and costume parades scheduled for Halloween have been postponed until further notice, an announcement on the district website said.
Superintendent Ray Gonzalez could not be reached for comment.
Wayne schools were closed on Monday and Tuesday and will be closed Wednesday due to Hurricane Sandy.
