Wyckoff Expects to Reopen Some Schools Wednesday

Only two the township's five K-8 public schools have power as of Monday night, so it's unclear when students all across Wyckoff would return to classes.

Some township students are expected to return to classes on Wednesday after missing more than a week of school, officials said Monday. Just how many students would be returning to classrooms, however, was unclear as of Monday night.

Power was restored at Eisenhower Middle School and Lincoln Elementary School on Monday, according to Wyckoff Public Schools Superintendent Richard Kuder. Orange and Rockland officials told the superintendent they were confident that at least one more school would be up and running by Wednesday.

Students would not be returning to school on Tuesday, but classes would resume for students at schools that have power on Wednesday, Kuder said. Orange & Rockland is the service provider for three of township's schools: Lincoln, Washington and Sicomac.

"I know that these are very trying times and I ask that you continue to be be patient as we get our schools running," Kuder wrote in a statement Monday. "The safety of your kids is our top priority and we are doing everything we can to safely get all of our schools open as quickly as possible. Please continue to take care of yourselves and your children and check in on your friends and neighbors."

Four out of 5 of the schools will be used on Election Day, when township residents cast can their ballots in local, county, state and national races.

The township said earlier this week that polling places in Wyckoff have not been changed and generators would be brought in to power voting booths where electricity has not been restored.

Polls are open on Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m.

Gee - I asked the Mayor of Wyckoff why the schools don't have generators and he looked at me like I was from outer space. None of the buildings have generators - I looked at him and said how is it that Town Hall is all lite up?? NOW - a generator is en route to Ramapo HS!! Duh!! It isn't that expensive to get generators for our schools - take it out of the budget for the education percentage - it's only 80% of our taxes!
