Port Jefferson, Mt. Sinai and Comsewogue school districts have all announced that school will be closed on Wednesday due to lingering effects from Hurricane Sandy. Most schools will be closed because of a lack of electricity.
Superintendent of Mt. Sinai said that there is "a total loss of electrical power in our buildings."
Mayor Margot Garant said that the village of Port Jefferson is still without power and that most likely school would be closed Wednesday, a fact confirmed by the school district's website.
In Comsewogue all schools and daycare will be shut as well on Wednesday. School board member John Swenning posted on Facebook that "there is still no power in four of the six buildings" in the district.
This offers a unique opportunity for kids to get a head start on trick-or-treating but Suffolk Police offered this warning earlier in the day:
"...as Halloween approaches, parents need to be aware of the hazardous conditions caused by Hurricane Sandy. If parents and their children choose to trick-or-treat this Halloween, they must be aware that there are still numerous downed trees and live wires as well as flooding conditions."
