Garden City Middle School and Hemlock School remain closed Wednesday.
While most students resumed classes Tuesday after missing a week of school because of Hurricane Sandy, Garden City Middle School and Hemlock School will remain closed Wednesday.

Hemlock kindergartners however will attend Stewart School while first graders and Ms. Gonzales' class will attend Stratford School.

An additional message was being sent to Hemlock parents and teachers with more details, according to an email superintendent of schools Dr. Robert Feirsen sent to parents Tuesday.

"We will hold regular, full school days tomorrow, November 7th, at Homestead, Locust, Stewart, Stratford and the High School," the email read. "There will be no Middle School classes due to a continuing power outage. Hemlock kindergarten students will attend Stewart School; Hemlock 1st graders and Ms. Gonzales' class will attend Stratford School."

Middle school staff are being asked to report to Stratford again, as they did Tuesday.

No parent-teacher conferences for the primary schools will take place Wednesday, nor will before or after school activities "except for high school teams practicing for competitions and the after school child care program."

Parents are asked to continue using 478-2000 to call the schools for urgent calls only. "There is no email, but we do have a limited web presence at least for now, so please check our home page if you can for additional information," the email continued.

"The Board of Education and I appreciate everyone's cooperation today and your help in enabling our students to return to their regular routines as much as possible; thank you in advance for tomorrow. I hope things are getting at least a little better for all - please stay safe and as warm as possible," Dr. Feirsen said.
