Hauppauge school officials will gather on Monday night to discuss what impact Hurricane Sandy will have on school year for Hauppauge students.
Superintendent Patricia Sullivan-Kriss announced there will be a special meeting of Hauppauge Board of Education at 7 p.m. Monday at former Whiporwhil Elementary School to discuss how to make up the days school closed for Hurricane Sandy and the nor`easter. Hauppauge School District was closed for a week following Hurricane Sandy due to power outages and downed trees closing local roadways.
Her announcement to district residents reads:
Parents, students and staff are all questioning the effect of the storm closing on the remainder of the school year. There will be a special Board of Education meeting tomorrow evening at 7:00 PM at Whiporwhil at which time our plan to make up the lost instructional days for students will be finalized. In so doing, we will be able to notify the community on Tuesday so that families can make any necessary accommodations or adjustments in their schedules.
In the original 2012-2013 calendar, the district had incorporated for up to three snow days.
