Due to a forecast of Hurricane Sandy wreaking havoc on Long Island, the Seaford and Wantagh school districts announced Sunday afternoon that its schools will be closed on Monday.
Acting Superintendent Maureen Goldberg said in a message posted on the district's website that Hurricane Sandy may also cause schools to be closed on Tuesday as well and asked parents to prepare.
"Due to the severe weather predicted as a result of Hurricane Sandy, all Wantagh Public Schools will be closed tomorrow, Monday October 29 and all after school activities have been cancelled as well," Goldberg's message stated. "Given the severity of the storm it is quite possible that we will be closed on Tuesday. I therefore urge you to make arrangements for child care in case schools are closed on Tuesday.
A message on the Seadord School District's website reads, "We urge everyone to take every precaution necessary to maintain safety during the storm."
The neighboring Levittown School District has also announced that schools will be closed Monday because of expected inclement weather from Sandy.
