POUND RIDGE, N.Y. The Bedford Central School District, which includes the Pound Ridge Elementary School, will be open for the start of school, as originally planned, on Tuesday, Sept. 6.
As of Wednesday evening, electrical power and Internet connections were restored to all school buildings. The campus transportation facility is the only district building without electricity at this time but that the issue will be resolved soon and all buses will be ready to pick up students on Tuesday, according to the district.
After assessing the conditions of the storm across the district, the district said it made decisions based on the priorities of safety, common sense, the opening of school smoothly, and then all other business and work. To avoid a last minute notice of a possible delay of the opening of school, parents were notified of the possibility that teachers and schools might not have access to all necessary emergency and student information and that electricity or emergency communications might not be fully functioning.
The district said it is aware that hundreds of students and families are still without electricity and that this is a very stressful situation for everyone. School officials said they hope that getting back to the routine of school will be beneficial for all.
