Sandy's coming...

...and the schools are getting ready. The School Committee received the following update from Mr. Allen last night regarding preparations for Hurricane Sandy:

...the Administration is actively monitoring the possible storm next week and working with the City’s Emergency Management Department to coordinate any activities and share information and resources.  The Facilities Department has instructed building custodians to take early precautions to secure the building, such as clearing roof drains, securing loose articles and trash receptacles in the school yard, etc.  The Facilities Department is prepared to respond to schools to address flooding, water infiltration, wind damage, or other issues. We are coordinating with the city to identify several schools as possible shelter locations in case is needed.  Additional updates on storm related issues will provided over the next few days as necessary.    
Go and do likewise!
