Madison Public Schools will re-open Monday, following the district calendar, after closing all of last week because of damage, blocked roads and power outages around the borough caused by Superstorm Sandy, Superintendent Dr. Michael Rossi announced.
The last of the schools without power, Torey J. Sabatini, had power restored as of Saturday afternoon. A decision about the possibility of using Thursday and Friday as school days will be made by the end of the day Monday.
Greetings Madison Learning Community. This is Doctor Rossi with an update on the district's status for schools. At this time we are prepared to open all five schools and follow the district calendar. That includes single session days on Monday and Tuesday at the elementary schools, and middle school, along with parent teacher conferences.
This storm brought unprecedented damage and even loss of life. I want to thank all of those within the Borough and the School District that gave up their time and expertise in an effort to guide us safely through this catastrophe. I also want to mention that the Madison Public library is open, and is the YMCA which is offering free showers to any of your family members up to 10 p.m. tonight. Should anything change with our schedule, moving forward including the possibility of using this upcoming Thursday and Friday as school days, I will you know by the close of business on Monday. I sincerely hope that all of you remain safe and your loved ones as well.
