And, the public schools aren't closed ...because?

This story is appearing on multiple Patch sites, so I do not know where you live, "Mrs. G." I wrote this story and I cover Point Pleasant Borough and Point Pleasant Beach. In those towns, no decision has been made at this point to close those schools, but school officials are closely monitoring Sandy and could still make that decision if they feel it's warranted. If you are inquiring about a different district, please feel free to email me at denise.distephan@patch.com and I can direct you to the correct editor. Thank you.

Montclair State University is still open and Monmouth University made a decision to close for Monday and Tuesday. The President of MU made the decision on Friday.

I called them earlier today. They're having a meeting at noon tomorrow and will make a decision then. We'll keep you posted when that happens.
