Hillsborough Schools to Open Wednesday
The district reminding residents classes will resume for the first time since Sandy swept through the area.
After closing for more than a week due to the severity of Hurricane Sandy’s impact on the region, Hillsborough Public Schools are opening for the first time.
The district is reminding residents that classes will resume on Wednesday, and that Thursday and Friday will be school days, unlike previously scheduled.
Seven consecutive school days have been cancelled due to the severity of the storm. The resulting power outages made an impact on election day, moving six of the township’s 11 polling locations to the high school on Tuesday.
School is open Wednesday through Friday this week, which was previously not the case. The NJEA annual educator's convention in Atlantic City was scheduled at the end of the week, but has since been cancelled. The district is using the opportunity to make up some of the days.
