Schools Re-Open On Shortened Schedule

After seven (7) full days of no school due to Superstorm Sandy, Roselle Park children will be having school tomorrow, sort of.

Patrick Spagnoletti, the school district superintendent, stated in an e-mail that he was making an executive decision and that effective tomorrow, November 7th, the Roselle Park School District will use the following shortened schedule due to power outages in certain schools throughout the borough until such time that PSE&G restores power permanently:

Roselle Park High School7:50 a.m. - 11:50 a.m.Roselle Park Middle School
Roselle Park Middle School12:30 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.
Early Childhood Center (ECC)classes canceled
Academy7:50 a.m. - 11:50 a.m.Roselle Park Middle School
Sherman Elementary School8:20 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.Sherman Elementary School
Robert Gordon Elementary School8:20 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.Robert Gordon Elementary School
EJF/Aldene Elementary School8:20 a.m. - 12:30 p.m.EJF/Aldene Elementary School

Elementary report cards are scheduled to be distributed next week and even though ECC classes are canceled for students, all ECC staff is to report to EJF/Aldene Elementary School. Both the RPHS and the RPMS principals will coordinate materials, room assignments, and a schedule with their respective staffs.

The superintendent also stated that the decision will be made to see if school opens on Thursday and Friday (days that were originally scheduled to have no classes for students) this evening. If schools open and outages still exist, the schedule above will repeat. If power is restored, schools will return to a normal full-day schedule.
