The following is a message Seaford Superintendent of Schools Brian Conboy addressed to the district Friday.
- Hello Seaford Community. This is Superintendent Brian Conboy. First, it is our sincere hope that your family is safe. We know the American Red Cross is supplying meals out of Cedar Creek Park for those in need.
Technical issues suffered after the storm prevented us from keeping in regular contact with you. We believe these issues are now resolved so that you can get up to date information from the website. We will continue to update News 12 and the Wantagh-Seaford Patch as information becomes available.
The current status of the school district is as follows: The High School, Middle School and Manor School all have power. The Harbor School does not. All buildings are in good shape and did not suffer any discernable storm damage; however there are several impassable roads south of Merrick Road and traffic signals that are not functioning making safe transportation a serious issue. The availability of gasoline is also a great concern.
It is our hope that power will be restored at Harbor sometime this weekend. We will update you with additional messages this weekend about the opening of school and contingency plans for Harbor School children if power remains out for an extended period.
Thank you for spreading this news to Seaford residents that may be displaced or unable to communicate.
