All Schools Open By January 2
All of the Rockaway schools that were inundated by Superstorm Sandy and closed by the Department of Education will be reopened by January 2, 2013, Chancellor Dennis Walcott said at a meeting at the recentlyopened Public School 114 on Monday night.
The list includes the Scholars’ Academy on Beach 104 Street, Public School 105 on Beach 51 Street and all of the schools at the Beach Channel Educational Campus – Beach Channel High School; Channel View School for Research; the Rockaway Park High School for Environmental Sustainability; Rockaway Collegiate High School and the special education school PS 256 Annex.
Students at all of those schools have been attending school at host buildings in Brooklyn and Queens.
“It is important that we get all of the students back to their home schools,” Walcott said. “Normality is important in situations such as these.”
