Ridgewood Schools Closed All Week

No word on Glen Rock schools for Friday.

With much of Ridgewood still without power, Superintendent Daniel Fishbein made the decision Wednesday to close all school activities for the remainder of the week.

Fishbein – outside Somerville School, where a charging station had been set up for residents – said no decisions have been made as to any potential closures next week.

Half of the village's schools were without power Wednesday. Still, none sustained damage, Fishbein said.

The superintendent also said he was not aware of any decision made to cancel the teacher conference in Atlantic City next week.

School days lost due to Hurricane Sandy are set to be taken out of the April vacation period, but Fishbein said there is a possibility that is altered.

Glen Rock schools are closed on Thursday but no determination has been made for Friday. School officials could not be reached Wednesday.

Power restored in the Ridgewoo Lawns area. Including Cable and Phone service. Plenty of Halloween candy still available... when the kids show up.

What about the area surrounding Willard?

Power still out all over Willard. I took a walking tour today. Lots of destruction in the area. The village workers did a good job clearing roadways and limiting hazards.

Willard area and ridge area got clobbered. Downtown Ridgewood had power last nite when I went out and the open restaurants were busy, As usual the promised 'out of state' crews that are supposed to supplement PSEG are no where to be seen. I have not even seen their contract tree crews to clear the lines which precedes the turning on of power. Friggin joke as usual. And PSEG will continue to tell us what a great job they are doing.

I thought days lost because of a "state of emergency" don't need to be made up?

JB 11:25 pm on Wednesday, October 31, 2012 Considering that there are close to 800,000 customers serviced by PSEG,the effort they are showing is amazing. Online you can see communities all over coming back. For those that think they should be able to snap their fingers and have their service back they might want to to count their blessings. If the worst you have is a bit of inconvenience, well please take the time to see the devastation of the storm! We saw caravans of out-of-state utility workers on the highway today. It will get done. The storm and aftermath are unprecedented..... Patience is needed, not judging how they are doing their job. The snarkiness is unnecessary. People are working hard.....folks are figuring out how to start all over...yet still people complain....sad at so many levels.

Let me tell you this, teachers better work next week when the teachers convention was going to be, we lost enough days of school. Considering Atlantic City is a mess it should not be an issue.

Agree 100% with USA1.

"teachers better work next week"! As if this is a choice?!? If you think the district asks teachers for their opinions about school closings, you are sadly mistaken.

The power is back in Ridgewood Lawns, but no cable and phone service yet.
James Kleimann November 01, 2012 at 03:03 PM
Recycling, trash, leaf collection back on schedule.

Hey Alex, where in the Lawns do you live? Do I have do everything? When cable kicked in all my phone connections are working fine now. Signed... The 90 year old Mayor of Robert St.
