Cherry Hill Schools Closed Wednesday, Oct. 31
Ten-thousand Cherry Hill residents—and some schools—are still experiencing power outages after Sandy.
Cherry Hill public schools will remain closed Wednesday, Oct. 31 as cleanup from Sandy continues throughout town.
"I made this decision based on power outages at several of our schools, the number of downed power lines and trees throughout the community, and in consultation with the mayor, the chief of police and the fire chief," Superintendent Maureen Reusche posted to the district's website.
"Although our facilities appear to be in good shape following the storm, a number of our schools are still without power. Power outages inhibit our ability to assess mechanical and electrical damages that a building may have experienced as a result of the storm.
"Cherry Hill emergency management officials report that approximately 10,000 Cherry Hill residents are currently without power. But even as power is restored throughout the community, we remain concerned about the downed trees and live power lines impacting the safety of our children as they travel to school."
Meanwhile, Cherry Hill Town Hall and the library will be open on Wednesday.
