Hurricane Sandy Update for Livingston Residents
Wednesday, October 31, 2012 • 4:54pm
LIVINGSTON, NJ - According to Marilyn Lehren at the Livingston Public Schools, all Livingston Public Schools and Offices will be remain closed on Thursday, November 1. More than three-quarters of the community – and seven schools – are still without power. Only the Mount Pleasant Elementary/Middle School complex is with power.
The Livingston High School gym is being used as a shelter for Livingston residents, including Cedar Street Commons for Seniors and Universal Institute, as well as some other group homes.
On Wednesday morning, restoration of power was beginning to the 80 percent of Livingston Township without electricity.
The Township of Livingston has suspended Trick or Tricking tonight, October 31. Gov. Chris Christie signed an executive order rescheduling Halloween throughout the state.
The 2012-2013 School Calendar includes three snow days. Schools are closed for students on Election Day, Tuesday, November 6. Because it is a Presidential Election, LPS does not have the option to open schools that day to make up for the loss of time due to Hurricane Sandy. Please refer to the School Calendar for how days will be made up if necessary.
We will take this one day at a time. The main issue for reopening the schools will be power.
We will continue to update you on the LPS Website and by email on the status of the clean up efforts and power outages in Livingston Township. Thank you for your patience as we work to reopen our schools.
