East Windsor and Cranbury Schools Remain Closed on MLK Day
Both districts did not decide to hold school on Martin Luther King Day as many other districts decided post-Sandy.
Despite some school districts changing Martin Luther King, Jr. Day from a day off to a school day, the East Windsor Regional Schools will remain closed on Monday, Jan. 21.
The Cranbury Township School District, which represents children within the Cranbury School, will also continue to be off on Martin Luther King Day.
A number of the school districts in the surrounding areas decided to hold school on the Martin Luther King and President's Day national holidays as a result of the the exorbitant amount of days off from lack of power and damage brought on by Superstorm Sandy. This change helped the districts make sure they met their 180 school day requirement without adding on a lot of additional days in June.
Luckily, the local schools fared pretty well during the storm and school resumed session on Monday, Nov. 5 following Sandy.
