Port Washington Public Schools will be open Monday, though St. Peters will be closed Monday, and BOCES will be closed Monday and Tuesday, school officials said.
Parents received an automated call from the school district at 3:52 p.m. Sunday, in which interim Superintendent Dr. Kathleen Mooney said that transportation would be provided but families should expect delays due to road conditions. Staff members were told to exercise judgment, particularly given the current gas shortage. Carpools are encouraged.
Power was only restored within the hour of the call, Mooney said.
No student will be penalized for missing school Monday, Mooney said.
School officials say they are "assessing this unprecedented situation daily," and express thanks to the community for its patience.
