Parsippany Schools to Remain Closed Tuesday

This is the seventh straight school day lost to Superstorm Sandy.

The Parsippany-Troy Hills Board of Education announced Monday afternoon that schools will be closed again Tuesday.

The school system has been shut down for more than a week due to Superstorm Sandy.

An added issues is Election Day–many schools will serve as polling places Tuesday.

The storm caused serious damage to the roof at Lake Hiawatha Elementary School, and power issues remain at some schools.

Additionally, some areas of town still have issues surrounding downed wires and trees, making transportation an issue.

Mayor Barberio- a daily update on Patch is an excellent idea. If you would provide whatever info you have to the residents, it would go a long way in helping us cope with this disaster and perhaps set a precedent for the flow of information during future events of this nature.

Last heard was 5 schools without power. Can't start schools on different schedules. There are plenty of days to give back to get on schedule. A day here and a day there and then take away spring vacation. Then when those days are used up it's Saturdays to school.

Unfortunately for the kids Halloween needs to be forgotten this year. I may not have power in my home but there are many families in NJ without a home right now. These are the hard working Middle Class who don't qualified for FEMA aid. Donate to your local food banks. Thanksgiving is around the corner.
