Wyckoff students would finally be returning to classes on Wednesday, according to District Superintendent Richard Kuder.
Elementary student would have split sessions at the two elementary schools that have power, and Eisenhower Middle School students would have a full day of classes at their home school of Eisenhower.
- Washington Elementary students will have classes from 7:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at Washington Elementary School.
- Sicomac Elementary students would have classes from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Washington Elementary School.
- Lincoln Elementary students will have classes from 7:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. at Lincoln Elementary School.
- Coolidge Elementary students would have classes from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at Lincoln Elementary School.
District officials waited to see if power would be restored at Coolidge, so parents had to wait too — until approximately 8 p.m. Tuesday — to find out if kids would return to classes.
"We're hoping that we're moving towards normalcy," Kuder said. "There are no perfect solutions here."
From a district notification to parents:
"Eisenhower Middle School will operate on its normal starting and ending times. Buses will be running and lunch will be served. Parents are encouraged to drive/carpool to school. There will be no after school activities.
- Elementary school parents will be responsible for getting students to and from school
- All Pre-school classes are canceled
- K-5 Students may bring a snack
- There are no before or after school activities at any school
- There are no instrumental music classes at the elementary schools
Students may be dropped five minutes prior to the announced starting time. Host school staff will assist in the drop-off and pick-up of guests and will be able to guide parents and students when they arrive at the school."
