Election Day to be Regular School Day for Levittown and Island Trees

Both the Levittown and Island Trees School District will be open Tuesday for a full school day for all staff and students.

At Island Trees Tuesday, they have cancelled their staff development day in order to run an instructional day. 

"It doesn’t make sense to have the kids out, then in, and then back out again, explained Superintendent Charles Murphy. "If the high school is without power, the students will stay out and the staff will again work as “departments” and pitch in to help us during this very difficult time."  

Unfortunately, the weather may bring us a Nor’easter later on this week.  Murphy hopes to keep in touch in case the region has further weather related issues. 

Tuesday will also be a normal school day for the Levittown School District. On Monday, all schools were open as the remaining buildings without power got it back on Sunday night.

All bus routes are operating normally, the LAMP and LAP programs are open, and lunch is being served as usual. The GC Tech program, however, is closed.

Polls are open Tuesday from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. To see where the closest polling location is, visit the NYS Voter Registration Search page.

I think it doesn't make sense to have the kids in school!!! I think it was VERY irresponsible to have kids in a school that are set up with voting booths and intermingling the public with these school children. Security issue is not even the word...stupidity is. I think if parents got to vote if they wanted their school term extended a few days or risk the protection of the children for one day, I think the answer would be obvious. I am outraged!!!
