George Washington, Theunis Dey Closed, Superintendent Says
Before and after school care will be provided.
George Washington Middle School and Theunis Dey Elementary School will be closed on Monday, Superintendet Ray Gonzalez said.
All other schools will open on a delayed schedule.
"We hope to have George Washington and Theunis Dey open for Tuesday, but he final decision will be made [Tuesday]," Gonzalez. said.
Gonzalez issued a notice to residents Sunday afternoon about officials’ plan of action for the week. The notice was sent out at 4:30 p.m. and updated a half hour later.
"We will only open up a school if we are confident that students and staff are safe and sound,” Gonzalez said in the notice.
Officials said they are going to try and operate as many buses as they can.
“We’re concerned about kids walking with possible live wires down. We want to make sure that students and their parents are able to get to school safely,” said Board of Education President Donald Pavlak Jr. as to why the schools will open later rather than at their regular times.
