The Commack School District has announced that no classes will be held Monday as thousands in the community remain without power, and will open four schools in the district as warming sites.
Commack schools were out all last week due to the destructive superstorm.
Commack High School, Commack Middle School, Sawmill Intermediate and Burr Intermediate schools will be open from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. to serve as warming sites and charging stations for the public. They will remain open during those hours until school commences, at which point the hours will be curbed back until 4 to 8 p.m.
A message from Superintendent d James stated the following: "While a number of our schools now have power, it is sometimes intermittent. Further complicating matters is the shortage of gasoline as well as continued hazardous conditions on the roads. After carefully considering the many factors involved, we have decided to close schools on Monday, Nov. 5. A decision regarding Tuesday, Nov. 6th, will be made as early as possible tomorrow. Know that if you have relocated temporarily, are still without power or worse, we will not penalize students for non-attendance once school resumes."
At last check on Sunday, the in Commack.
