Syosset makes special arrangements to open schools.

As of Tuesday, all Syosset schools will be back in session for the first time since Hurricane Sandy.

Syosset announced that classes will resume Tuesday morning. The district made the following announcements on their website Monday:

  • All schools will open Tuesday, minus South Woods Middle School and Whitman Elementary.
  • South Woods students will go to Thompson Middle School.
  • Whitman students will go to Baylis Elementary.
  • District food services won't be available at elementary and middle schools Tuesday.
  • Pick up and drop off times may vary as buses perform their routes.

Our Lady of Mercy Academy

Mustangs headed back to school Monday and announced that casual clothing may be worn for the rest of the week.

75 percent of OLMA students came back to class Monday, according to a letter on the school's website. The school now has charging stations for students and their parents to use as a "home office," said the school. The quarter ends this week and they said students would not be penalized for work they miss as a result of the storm.

St. Edward the Confessor

St. Edward's will be open Tuesday. Students whose home districts are not in session will have to arrange for their own transportation. St. Edward's will have an open house Tuesday from 9:30-11:30 a.m.

What about our power? Will it come back soon or LIPA has forgotten us. How much LIPA Owner is taking commission from some generator companies. That's ridiculous!!!!

Anthony....the embarrassment is you. At a time when people are mourning those who died in the storm and while so many of our neighbors and friends are suffering you are crying over a school. One...you are wrong...two... you are a wimp

Shabnam power should be back by next Tuesday according to lipa. We have used local libraries to keep warm.

Dan, your right not the best time to comment on the condition of the school. I am in the same boat as everyone else...tree on my house, no power for 11 days and two displaced children under 3. Comment removed, not my intention to cause insult.
