BEDFORD, N.Y.--School officials with the Bedford Central School District issued the following statement Sunday night:
The following schools will be open: Bedford Hills Elementary School, Bedford Village Elementary School, Mount Kisco Elementary School, Pound Ridge Elementary School, West Patent Elementary School, and Rippowam Cisqua Schools Upper & Lower Campuses.
The following schools will remain closed on Monday: Fox Lane High School, Fox Lane Middle School and Saint Patrick’s Parochial School in Bedford.
Transportation will be provided to the in-district schools that are open. Buses will not be able to go into the small number of roads that are still closed or not passable. No Out-of-District transportation will be provided on Monday. Out-of-District transportation will resume on Tuesday for those schools that are open.
Central office, technology and all custodial staff for all buildings should report to work. Faculty and support staff for open schools should also report to work.
Just a reminder that Tuesday, November 6th has been changed to a student attendance day, not a Superintendent’s Conference Day as was originally scheduled.
Bedford Village Elementary School, Bedford Hills Elementary School and Mount Kisco Elementary School will be open Monday, Bedford Central School District superintendent Jere Hochman announced Sunday at noon.
The announcement was made by way of the Twitter page the district created specifically for Hurricane Sandy-related alerts.
Officials are still waiting for word from the utility companies on Pound Ridge Elementary School, West Patent Elementary School and Fox Lane High School and Middle School, according to Hochman.
NYSEG officials said Saturday that the latest projected power restoration date for the high school and middle school is Wednesday, according to Hochman.
Tuesday was scheduled as a superintendent's conference day but will now be a regular school day for any schools that are powered up and open as of that date. Schools will be opened on a school-by-school basis as the days go on.
