School Districts Get Ready for Sandy

Huntington cancels Monday night program.


School districts are bracing for Hurricane Sandy and the start of a new school week.

The Huntington district has postponed its Parent University Workshop, which was scheduled for Monday night, until Jan. 8.

Superintendent James Polansky issued a letter, reminding people to take precautions.

"We are carefully tracking the approach of Hurricane Sandy as it moves its way up the east coast of the country.  Should weather conditions cause disruptions to our school operations or to one or more district facilities, we will advise you of any measures the district will take via phone and e-mail message.  We will also post updates on the district website (www.hufsd.edu).  Please ensure that your mobile phones and laptop devices are fully charged in the event of a power outage.

"The safety of our students and staff is our utmost priority in all emergency situations. Please take all necessary precautions, assist those in need, and stay safe!

South Huntington said it is planning for schools to remain open. Should the district decide to close schools, parents will be notified through the Connect-Ed system and on the district website.
