East Haddam Schools Closed on Thursday

Mary Beth Iacobelli, Superintendent of Schools: All East Haddam Schools will be closed on Thursday, November 1 and there will be no after school activities. There will be no out-of-district transportation. Additionally, all town Park and Rec activities are cancelled.

We will evaluate Friday's school opening and a message will be sent out as soon as a determination is made. In the meantime, I hope you are well and that the impositions resulting from Storm Sandy are all resolved soon!

Update from First Selectman Mark Walter and Emergency Management Director Craig Mansfield

As of Wednesday night, East Haddam is still 86% without power. There are currently 7 CL&P crews in town still working on clearing roads and wires and they began restoring power last night.

"We are working closely with CL&P to restore power as soon as possible, but they have not committed to 100% restoration time yet," according to Walter.

Bottled water, MRE's (meals ready to eat) and non-drinking water are available at the high school until 9 p.m. Please bring your own containers for non-drinking water.
