How Long Will The School Year Be For Paulsboro Students?
As Paulsboro students return to school today for the first time since November 30, there is concern about how long the school year will run.
The Paulsboro district lost two days to superstorm Sandy and another 7 days because of the train derailment that caused an evacuation for part of the town according to the South Jersey Times.
“We’re going to start examining the calendar to see what days will work for us,” Paulsboro Superintendent Frank Scambia told the South Jersey Times. “The school year ends at the end of June, so we have to make them up before the last day of June.”
Parents are concerned about classes being held in non-air conditioned rooms and the fact that there could be snow days on top of what's already been missed.
The Paulsboro Borough Council and Mayor W. Jeffery Hamilton hold an informational forum tonight at Paulsboro High School at 6PM.The forum includes a moderated question & answer session along with an update on the derailment. The Unified Command that has been handling the cleanup of the derailment will also update their work.
The Unified Command has been invited to speak with Paulsboro residents Tuesday night about clean up of a train derailment.
