Thursday's nor'easter caused latest closure
The Long Branch School District will remain closed on Thursday, Nov. 8, school officials announced early this morning. The school has been closed since Monday, Oct. 29, because of Hurricane Sandy. A message on the school district's web site states that Thursday's closure is due to "streets with low-lying power and cable lines, which school buses cannot travel." A message on the school district's Facebook page states that the district anticipates reopening all schools on Friday. The original plan was to have half days today and Friday, but the nor'easter and the several inches of snow it brought to the area changed that.
