Jefferson Schools Remain Closed Tuesday

Mayor says damage from Sandy causes schools to close another day.

All Jefferson Township schools will remain closed on Tuesday due to the power outages and damage caused by Hurricane Sandy last week, Mayor Russell Felter said.

Felter said a decision will be made on Tuesday about other potential closures.

Felter said while some power has been restored around the township, the majority of the township is still out. He said as of Monday afternoon, there are 42 JCP&L crews out working to get power back to residents.

While the percentage of residents without power is unclear, Felter said hopefully everyone will get their power back within a few days.

He said the crews are working on the main lines, and the township sustained more damage than they originally thought.

The warming centers and charging stations in the township are still open at Camp Jefferson and the Senior Center until 10 p.m. on Monday.

Halloween activities will be held Monday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Lakeside Field and the high school track.
