Students in the Morris School District will get at least one more day off on Monday.
The district waited until late Sunday afternoon to announce that all district schools would remain closed on Monday, Nov. 5., "due to continued road closures and power outages throughout the community," according to the Morris School District website.
According to the Morris School District calendar, students were expected to have four-hour, 20 minute sessions Monday and Wednesday this week for "conferences." But, during a Board of Education meeting on Thursday, it was decided that schools would be open full days all week if hurricane-related issues were not still keeping buildings from opening. School was scheduled to be closed Tuesday for "staff development" and Thursday and Friday for the annual NJEA Convention in Atlantic City, which has been cancelled as a result of Hurricane Sandy.
Correction: A previous version of this story indicated no decision had yet been made regarding whether or not to open schools this week when originally scheduled to be closed.
