Schools will remain closed for students for the rest of the week following Hurricane Sandy, Mayor Bloomberg announced this afternoon.
But he said the city is asking teachers and school staff to report to schools on Friday.
Bloomberg said the Friday teacher workday would allow teachers and school staff to prepare for students’ return after an interruption of unprecedented length.
In a press release, Walcott said the department would “provide more information to our staff, including those who may be required to report to a site other than their school.”
How many will make it in?
I have to come from Jersey.
The PATH isn't running.
I have no water and the electricity has been in and out all day.
My school in Manhattan is without power.
Much of Long Island is still without power.
Petulant little man can't bear to see people off with pay so he's going to force people to come in even though there are no students, many schools are still without power and transit is limited.
And you know he'll wind up adding five additional school days at the end because students missed five days.
Will the UFT do anything about this?
